US Drug Watchdog Now Urges All DePuy Pinnacle All Metal Hip Implant Recipients to Call Them for the Names of the Best Law Firms-Be Concerned About Premature Failures

October 21, 2012

The US Drug Watchdog says, “We are extremely worried about the fact that about 140,000 DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implants were installed on US citizens between 2002, and 2010. With European health agencies now suggesting a 50% failure rate with metal on metal hip implants, we believe the current number of DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant recipients needs to grow from the current 2000 identified by the federal court handling this litigation to over 100,000. We do not care if the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant has failed yet or not. Because of our very real concern over DePuy Pinnacle all metal hip implant premature failures we want all US recipients of this hip implant to contact us so we can get them identified to the best possible attorneys, or law firms-now.” 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.” For more information about the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant recipients are encouraged to contact the US Drug Watchdog says at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com

The US Drug Watchdog says, “Only about 2000 people have signed up for a class action because their DePuy Pinnacle hip implant has failed. European health agencies are suggesting a failure rate of 50% with metal on metal hip implants. There are 140,000 US citizens, who received the DePuy Pinnacle metal-on-metal hip implant between 2002 and 2010, and our goal is getting every DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipient identified to the best possible law firms, regardless if the hip implant has failed yet or not.” Because of metal on metal failure rate issues the US Drug Watchdog believes the number of DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients identified by the court should be over one hundred thousand, so they 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 all metal hip implant.” According to the New York Times, “Some 500,000 patients have received an all-metal replacement hip.” For more information about the DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant please call the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466. http://USDrugWatchdog.com
