According to Reuters, on August 21st 2011, "In a highly unusual move, DePuy has hired a third party -- Broadspire Services Inc, which manages workers compensation and other medical claims on behalf of insurance companies and employers -- to administer patient claims for out-of-pocket medical costs associated with the recall. The US Drug Watchdog says, "We do not want recipients of the now recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant, to walk away from their rights, or get less than they deserve. Please call us at 866-714-6466, so that we can get you to actual legal experts, that will protect your rights. Do not accept anything less than the best possible deal for yourself." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog is urging any recipient of the now recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant to think twice about accepting a deal offered by DePuy's representative Broadspire. The group is extremely worried that recipients of the now recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant may not get the same types of compensation, as might be offered through the Ohio federal court that is handling the litigation involving this recalled medical device. As a back ground, according to Reuters on August 21st 2011, "The move has prompted debate among industry and legal experts. Some see it as an efficient way to outsource a process that is unrelated to making artificial hips. Others see it as a way for J&J to limit payments while gaining control of medical records and other material that could be used against patients in court." The US Drug Watchdog says, "We have heard that DePuy ASR hip implant recipients that are part of the national litigation might be getting significant compensation. In the strongest terms possible we are urging all recipients of the DePuy ASR to get a free legal review from a high caliber national law firm, before you accept any deal from anyone, and we will provide names, and specific phone numbers for the best possible attorneys. DePuy ASR hip implant recipients are urged to call us anytime at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
