Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We want to make certain all recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR get to the best possible national caliber attorneys, because compensation is vital when talking about the ordeal of a hip implant replacement, also known as revision surgery, and August 24th 2012 might be the deadline for most US states. Tragically, of the approximately 40,000 DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implants, only about 4,000 DePuy ASR recipients have been identified by the federal court handling the litigation. Please call us if you have one of these DePuy ASR's before August 24th, and we do not care if this specific hip implant has failed yet-or not." According to the New York Times, "The so-called metal-on-metal hips, in which a device’s ball and joint are made of metal, are failing at high rates within a few years instead of lasting 15 years or more, as artificial joints normally do. The wear of metal parts against each other is generating debris that is damaging tissue and, in some cases, crippling patients." The US Drug Watchdog says, " If you or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

August 24th 2012 might be the deadline for most US states. Tragically, of the approximately 40,000 DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implants, only about 4000 DePuy ASR recipients have been identified by the federal court

The US Drug Watchdog says, "It is absolutely vital we get every recalled DePuy ASR metal-on-metal hip implant identified to the best possible attorneys with the focus on compensation, because of the approximately 40,000 devices out there, only 4000 DePuy ASR recipients have been identified by the federal court in Ohio, and we may now be looking at a deadline of August 24th 2012 to have all DePuy ASR recipients identified." The DePuy ASR hip implant was recalled in August 2010. The US Drug Watchdog says, "We fear there are tens of thousands of recalled DePuy ASR hip implant recipients in the US who, because of age, or not wanting to go through a hip replacement revision surgery again-say nothing. Nothing is more important to us than trying to get them some meaningful help in the form of legal representation from the best possible law firms with the focus being compensation."
