US Drug Watchdog Now Urges All DePuy ASR And DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant Recipients To Call Them For The Names Of The Best Law Firms-Don't Get Left Holding The Bag

Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We know there are 180,000 recipients of the now recalled DePuy ASR, and or the Depuy Pinnacle hip implant, and we are on a mission to make certain every recipient gets identified to the best possible attorneys, so they will be compensated in the event their metal-on-metal hip implant has already has failed, or might prematurely fail. At this moment only a tiny fraction of these metal on metal hip implant recipients have been identified." The DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant was recalled in August of 2010, and the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant is now subject to national litigation. The US Drug Watchdog believes many individuals who received a now recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, or a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant do not want to go through a painful hip replacement surgery, also called revision surgery; so as a result they do not complain. The group is strongly encouraging family members or loved ones of anyone receiving a hip implant between 2002 and 2010 to ask if it was a DePuy ASR hip implant, or a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant? For more information about the DePuy ASR hip implant recall, or the problematic DePuy Pinnacle hip implant please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com

We know there are 180,000 recipients of the now recalled DePuy ASR, and or the Depuy Pinnacle hip implant, and we are on a mission to make certain every recipient gets identified to the best possible attorneys

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We have one gigantic problem with the recipients of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, and or the recipients of the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant; not enough people have been identified by the federal courts handling these cases. Between the recalled DePuy ASR, and the DePuy Pinnacle we have over 180,000+ US recipients. However, only about 5,500 individuals have been identified by the federal courts handling these cases thus far. To insure no DePuy ASR hip implant recipient, or no DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipient gets left on the curb, holding the bag for a problem they did not create, we believe the number of recalled DePuy ASR, and DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients needs to go up to over 100,000 US citizens. How do you compensate a US citizen, who received a metal-on-metal hip implant, who is now crippled?" The DePuy ASR was recalled in August of 2010 because of a very high failure rate, and the DePuy Pinnacle is now the subject of a national class action because of failure rate issues. The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you, or a loved one has had a hip replacement involving the recalled DePuy ASR, or a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466, before time runs out to get compensated." http://USDrugWatchdog.com

Important note from the US Drug Watchdog: "We know a large number of the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant, and or the recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal on metal hip implant are senior citizens, and we know we are not hearing from them-we fear because of their age, and not wanting to go through hip replacement surgery. Again, we are encouraging family members of any hip implant recipient who had a hip implant surgery after 2001 to ask the family member, or friend if it was a DePuy ASR, or a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant. If the answer is yes-please have them call us at 866-714-6466." http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog indicates symptoms of the recalled DePuy ASR hip implant, or the DePuy Pinnacle failure include:

  • Pain in the Hip Region
  • Problems While Walking or The Inability to Walk
  • Swelling of the Hip
  • General Discomfort
  • Lack of Flexibility
  • Elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the hip implant recipients blood.

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier pharmaceutical, and medical device watchdog in the United States. The group says, "We want to make certain all DePuy ASR hip implant recipients, and all DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients get to attorneys that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients. We do not want any recipient of a recalled DePuy ASR, or a DePuy Pinnacle sitting on the curb, for a disaster that was not their doing."
