US Drug Watchdog Now Calls Its DePuy Pinnacle All Metal Hip Implant Victims Initiative Vital With a Focus on the Best Law Firms & Getting Recipients Compensated

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Only about 1000 people have signed up for a class action because their DePuy Pinnacle hip implant has failed. We think the numbers should probably be over one hundred thousand, so we are initiating a very aggressive victims initiative, that includes access to national caliber personal injury attorneys, who thoroughly understand the issues with metal-on-metal hip implants, and the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant. If you are a recipient, or a loved one is a recipient of a DePuy Pinnacle hip implant, that has already failed, or showing symptoms of a failure, or you are concerned about a premature failure, we want to get you identified, and we want to make certain you get to the best possible national caliber personal injury law firms, to ensure you receive the best possible legal advice." According to court records there are over 140,000 US citizens, who received the DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant between 2002 and 2010, and the US Drug Watchdog's goal is getting every DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipient identified regardless if it has failed yet or not. According to the New York Times, "Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement hip."

The focus of the US Drug Watchdog’s campaign is getting every recipient of the all metal DePuy Pinnacle hip implant identified to the best possible attorneys, with goal being compensation, in the event the device fails

(PRWEB) September 28, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, “The Europeans are suggesting a failure rate of 50% on all metal on metal hip implants, and by far the DePuy Pinnacle hip implant is the largest player with over 25% of all US metal on metal hip implant recipients. The key to our DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant victims initiative is identifying victims with blood tests, that are focused on elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the recipients blood. Over 140,000 DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implants were surgically installed on US citizens between 2002, and 2010.” The DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant device is now the subject of a national class action lawsuit. The focus of the US Drug Watchdog’s campaign is getting every recipient of the metal-on-metal DePuy Pinnacle hip implant identified to the best possible attorneys, with goal being compensation, in the event the device has failed, or the metal on metal hip implant prematurely fails in the near future. According to the New York Times on December 27th 2011, “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 surgery involving the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466.” http://USDrugWatchdog.com

The US Drug Watchdog is advising all US Citizens, who have received a metal on metal hip implant anytime after 2001 to start getting annual blood tests focused on measuring cobalt, or chromium levels a the hip implant recipients blood. If these cobalt, or chromium levels are elevated please call the US Drug Watchdog for more information, at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier medical device, and pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, “We want to make certain all DePuy Pinnacle hip implant victims get to the actual trial law firms or attorneys that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients. In the instance of the DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant we could be talking about 100,000+ potential victims.” For more information please contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com.
