The US Drug Watchdog says, "It is vital we do everything possible to get all recalled DePuy ASR recipients identified in the states where the statute of limitations has not yet run out, because there could be hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation on the line for these recipients, with the caveat the procedure to install this specific device had to have occurred in the remaining states, where the statute of limitations has not yet run." 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 handling this litigation we are urging you to call us immediately at 866-714-6466, if the procedure was done in one of these states."

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier medical device, and pharmaceutical watchdog in the United States. The group says, “We also want to make certain all DePuy Pinnacle all metal 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 possibly significant financial compensation. According to court records there are about 130,000 recipients of a DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant device, and only a small fraction have been identified by the federal court handling premature failure issues." For more information about the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant, and a vital blood test please contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com
