Exactech Hip Replacement Lawsuit Timeline

May 2023

Judge Donna Keim of Gainesville, FL, organized a special “science day” focused on Exactech implants. Two esteemed judges, Judge Nicholas Garaufis and Judge Marcia M. Henry from the Eastern District of New York, were invited to participate.

During this unique gathering, experts representing the plaintiff and defense sides of the Exactech lawsuit shared valuable insights on various aspects of the case.

Topics included the science behind hip and knee replacements, revisions, the materials used in the recalled Exactech implants, and the packaging materials. Additionally, other issues related to the recalled devices were also addressed.

Science Day was a significant opportunity for the judge to deepen her understanding of the recalled devices and raise pertinent questions. Moving forward, regular case management conferences will be held by the judges as the discovery phase progresses in the Exactech lawsuits. This ensures a thorough and practical examination of the matter at hand.

March 2023

The FDA warns patients and healthcare providers who have used Exactech joint replacement devices between 2004 and August 2021. They communicated about the recall of specific devices manufactured during this period.

The recalled Exactech joint replacement devices, including knees, ankles, and hips, were found to have been packaged in defective packaging bags. These bags lacked an essential oxygen barrier layer, which serves to protect the devices from oxidation – a chemical reaction that can deteriorate plastics over time.

The consequences of oxidation can be severe, resulting in accelerated device wear/failure, as well as component cracking or fracture. These issues may ultimately necessitate corrective revision surgery. It is important to note that some of the recalled devices are also associated with an increased risk of revision surgeries and bone loss due to excessive device wear/failure.

The FDA urged patients and healthcare providers to be aware of this recall and take the necessary steps to address potential risks or concerns. It was advised to contact the appropriate healthcare professionals to discuss further actions, such as device replacement or additional monitoring.

January 2023

Exactech pushes for official coordination and consolidation of federal and state court litigations related to the Exactech implant recalls.

December 2022

A rapid increase in lawsuits related to the Exactech recall has been filed into the Exactech MDL 3044.

October 2022

Due to the volume of cases filed, lawsuits involving the recalled knee and ankle products were consolidated into a Multi-District Litigation (MDL) in the Eastern District of New York. Similarly, many recalled hip and ankle products filed in Florida remain consolidated in the Florida state courts. Over a year later, over 850 lawsuits are pending in the MDL, and over 200 are pending in the Florida courts.

February 2022

To avoid paying patients what they truly deserve, Exactech chose early on to provide a settlement option upfront for its victims. Exactech retained the services of Broadspire, a third-party settlement administrator and risk management firm, to handle the claims reimbursement process.

Patients were encouraged to file a claim with Broadspire and obtain reimbursement for their out-of-pocket medical expenses only.

Essentially, Broadspire was hired by Exactech to lure victims in by appealing to people’s desire for quick money without the need for a lawyer. However, it is essential to remember that Broadspire is a risk management company whose sole purpose was to minimize the financial damage to Exactech.

The Broadspire settlement option only reimburses patients for medical expenses paid that insurance did not cover. This significantly reduces the amount of financial compensation Exactech will have to pay out.

Lost wages, related medical bills, and non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, are not part of the calculus. A settlement through Broadspire will NOT compensate you for all of your damages.

Submitting a claim through Broadspire will impact your legal options against Exactech.

June 2021

Exactech issued recalls of its knee, hip, and ankle implant systems. They said defective packaging caused the polyethylene inserts to oxidize and deteriorate rapidly. This ultimately led to a premature failure of the devices.

Learn About the Link Between Chemical Hair Relaxers and Uterine Cancer

It was a beautiful day in June, and Grace was getting ready for work. She had been using chemical hair relaxers and straighteners for years. It was part of her beauty routine to keep her hair looking great.

Little did she know that the chemicals in these products may have been putting her at risk of developing uterine Cancer.

Grace visited her doctor when she started having vaginal bleeding and feeling pain in her pelvic region. After multiple tests and scans, the doctor came back with shocking news. Grace had uterine Cancer.

After her cancer diagnosis, an article appeared. It suggested that frequent use of certain hair relaxers could be linked to this type of Cancer. Grace knew that something needed to be done.

She searched for a law firm that was representing women with uterine Cancer due to the long-term use of hair relaxers and straighteners.

Uterine Cancer is the 4th most common Cancer.

Uterine cancer ranks among the top cancers affecting women in the US, coming fourth in prevalence and sixth in cancer-related deaths. Did you know that frequent use of hair relaxers could contribute to women as young as their 20’s being diagnosed with this cancer? It’s true and a significant cause for concern.

You should look out for the following symptoms:

– Unusual vaginal bleeding or discharge

– Pain in the pelvic region

– Painful urination

– Pain during sex

– Unusual weight loss

If you have observed any of these symptoms, it’s crucial to talk to your medical practitioner about your concerns. They’ll help you screen for uterine cancer and give you the appropriate guidance.

Dangerous chemicals in hair relaxer products are linked to uterine Cancer.

Hair relaxers and straighteners are in a category of highly used cosmetic products loaded with chemicals. The chemicals are used to break the natural bonds in hair fibers. This temporarily changes the hair’s structure.

Unfortunately, many of these products contain dangerous chemicals that have been linked to health risks such as uterine Cancer. Many may not realize that harsh chemicals such as parabens, nitrosamines, bisphenol A, and formaldehyde, to name a few, are absorbed through the scalp during treatment.

This can cause burns and lesions, worsening the exposure to the scalp and into the body. The latter chemical, formaldehyde, is highly toxic to humans and has been linked to an increased risk of cancer.

But that’s not all. Chemical hair relaxers contain diethylhexylphthalate (DEHP), which is an endocrine-disrupting chemical that can interfere with hormone receptors and even cause developmental abnormalities.

You may be astonished to learn that consistent exposure can also cause damage to the reproductive system.

Don’t put your health at risk. Make informed choices and consider all alternatives before choosing a hair care regimen.

Although using these products may be convenient, it is important to be aware of their potentially hazardous chemicals. Be sure to read product labels carefully and take caution when using these products.
