One of the most heartbreaking aspects of the work we do is frequently individuals who have a recalled medical device, or pharmaceutical product never hear about possible defects, or compensation.

The US Drug Watchdog says, "According to court records the DePuy ASR all metal hip implant was recalled in August of 2010. Court records indicate that less than half of the 30,000 recalled DePuy ASR mestal, or metal hip implant recipients have been identified by the court handling this litigation. While it may not now be possible to identify all recipients of the DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant, if the statute of limitations has already run out, some states are still available. We are urging friends, or family members to ask a loved one who received a all metal hip implant between 2005, and early 2010, if the device was the DePuy ASR? The statute of limitations on the recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant has not yet run out in Arkansas, Washington D.C., Florida, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. If a person is a recipient of a recalled DePuy ASR all metal hip implant, and they have not yet been identified by the court, please call the US Drug Watchdog immediately at 866-714-6466, because they may only have a few more weeks to get identified by the court, if the procedure was done in one of the states the group has listed."
The US Drug Watchdog says, "One of the most heartbreaking aspects of the work we do is frequently individuals who have a recalled medical device, or pharmaceutical product never hear about possible defects, or compensation. Court records indicate the settlement compensation for recipients of a recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant could be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, so we really are urging recipients of this specific type of all metal hip implant to call us at 866-714-6466, if they have not yet been identified by the court."
