The US Drug Watchdog says, "The Europeans are suggesting failure rates of metal on metal of 50%, or more, and they may soon be requiring blood testing to determine if a metal on metal hip implant has failed. Our goal is to identify at least 200,000 plus US recipients of metal on metal hip implants to the best possible attorneys, because we will not tolerate another backroom deal, nor will we stand by as hundreds of thousands of US citizens get left on the curb holding the bag for a problem that should not be theirs."
The Us Drug Watchdog is now calling their defective, or failed metal-on-metal hip implant compensation, and representation initiative there largest medical device victims campaign ever, because up to 500,000 US citizens are involved. The goals of this campaign is compensation for what a victim of a metal-on-metal hip implant failure will have to go through, and making certain every victim of a metal-on-metal hip implant has the best possible attorneys. The US Drug Watchdog says, "As of this moment under 5000 US citizens, who have a failed metal on metal hip implant have been identified by federal courts in Ohio, and or Texas. We believe the number needs to be over 150,000 for starters." US metal on metal hip implant recipients are encouraged to call the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
Note From the US Drug Watchdog: "Our metal on metal hip implant initiative is not just limited to the recalled DePuy ASR, or the Depuy Pinnacle that is now subject to a national class action. In our opinion all metal on metal hip implant devices are on the table, and we want to hear from any metal on metal hip implant recipient if their hip implant has failed, or is in the process of failing." Symptoms of a metal on metal hip implant failure include loss of flexibility, loss of mobility, pain in the area of the hip implant, swelling in the area of the hip implant, elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the metal on metal hip implant recipients blood. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
The US Drug Watchdog says, "One of the biggest problems we have with respect to our failed medical device or recalled drug initiative work is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall or failures involving medical devices like metal-on-metal hip implants. If you have a friend, or loved one who is a recipient of a metal-on metal hip implant that has already failed or is showing symptoms of a failure, such as swelling, pain in the region of the hip, loss of flexibility or loss of mobility, please have them call us at 866-714-6466. We want to make certain these metal-on-metal hip implant victims get to the best possible attorneys, to insure they get the best possible compensation for their ordeal." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
