DePuy Patients are Urged To Be Identified Before August 2012 Being part of the recall does not mean that you would just submit yourself to the conditions set by the manufacturing company and suffer the troubles by yourself. Being part of a recall, especially something as troublesome as the asr recall that was announced by DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. on August 2010 makes you eligible to file a DePuy Hip recall class action against and receive a proper compensation from the manufacturing company of the defective device. As of now, there are about 6000 hip lawsuits that were filed against DePuy, and the patients who have filed these cases are set to go on trial later this year. Despite the huge number of cases that were filed, there are still a lot of patients who chose to stay silent about the trouble they are experiencing because of the defective hip replacement device. The US Drug Watchdog are urging all patients who have been part of the controversial recall to contact hip lawyers that they trust as soon as possible even if they are not experiencing any problems with the recalled hip replacement that was implanted on them because the law has already set the deadline for all patients to be identified which falls on August this year. The recall, which was due to the reported high failure rate of the device, affected about 93000 individuals all over the world, 40,000 of which are US Citizens. The problem with this is, only 3400 of which are identified by the federal court in Ohio. Lack of publicity is probably one of the reasons why a lot of patients are not informed about the situation they are in. There are a lot of patients who are not yet aware of the urgency of the situation they are in, including the risks that they run by not contacting their lawyers. According to US watchdog, patients who are part of the recall are likely to receive up to $100,000 settlements for all the trouble they experienced because of the recall. However, if they failed to make themselves identified before the said deadline, all their chances of receiving the proper compensation they deserve would be gone. Being part of the depuy recalls is definitely a huge problem for anyone, aside from financial and even emotional problems that you would get; you also run the risk for serious health problems. So what if all the troubles rise after some time? How would you be able to go after the company that brought you all the trouble? If you are thinking of contacting lawyers regarding the recall, the time is now.
