The US Drug Watchdog says, "Because there could be hundreds of thousands of dollars involved, we are urging all recipients of a recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant to call us immediately, if they live in one of the remaining states where the statute of limitations window has not yet closed." According to court records the statute of limitations on the recalled DePuy ASR metal on metal hip implant has not yet run out in the following states: 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. The US Drug Watchdog says, "If you are a recipient of a recalled DePuy ASR, and you have not yet been identified by the court please call us as soon as possible at 866-714-6466, if the procedure was done in one of the states we have listed, and we need to mention the time remaining to get identified could be just a few weeks for individuals in many of these states."
The US Drug Watchdog is also saying, "Only a fraction of the 130,000 DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant recipients in the US have been identified by the federal court handling a case related to premature failures with this particular hip implant device. Because of this we are urging all recipients of a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant to call us, so that we can provide them with information about a specific blood test designed to measure cobalt, and chromium in a all metal hip implant recipient's blood stream. If the blood test indicates elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium it is a very good indicator of a all metal hip implant failure. We do not want one DePuy Pinnacle recipient left holding the financial bag for an expensive hip revision surgery, and post operative therapy, so we are urging all recipients to call us at 866-714-6466 so we can provide simple instructions for this blood test." 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 we get all recalled DePuy ASR recipients identified in the states where the statute of limitations has not yet run out, and we are urging all DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients get a blood test to determine if their hip implant has failed. In the event the blood test indicates elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium we will get the recipient to national caliber law firms that have a superior record in representing their clients in these types of national lawsuits, involving potentially significant financial compensation." For more information about the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant, and a critical blood test please contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com
