Update on Exactech Hip Replacement Recall Lawsuits

More and more patients are filing Exactech hip replacement recall lawsuits. Exactech is a global medical device company that creates orthopedic implant devices and surgical implants for joint replacement surgeries.

In June of 2021, Exactech issued recalls of its knee, hip, and ankle implant systems.

The recall cites defective packaging that caused the polyethylene inserts to oxidize and deteriorate rapidly. This deterioration ultimately leads to a premature failure of the device.

As a result of this premature device failure, thousands of patients who received hip, knee, and ankle replacement surgery required revision surgery or developed serious health issues, such as osteolysis.

Exactech Recall Fallout: Legal Battles Surge Over Implant Failures

Lawsuits have been filed against Exactech by victims seeking compensation for their past and future medical expenses and pain and suffering.

Due to the volume of cases filed, the lawsuits involving the recalled knee and ankle products were consolidated into a Multi-District Litigation (MDL) in October of 2022 in the Eastern District of New York.

Similarly, a number of 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.

To avoid paying the injured patients what they truly deserve, Exactech chose early on to provide an upfront settlement option.

Patients Beware: Broadspire Settlements May Not Cover Full Extent of Damages

Exactech retained the services of Broadspire, a third-party settlement administrator and risk management firm, to handle the claims reimbursement process.

They are encouraging patients to file a claim with Broadspire and obtain reimbursement for their out-of-pocket medical expenses only.

Essentially, Broadspire is luring victims in by appealing to people’s desire for quick money without the need for a lawyer.

It is important to remember that Broadspire is a risk management company whose sole purpose is to protect the interests of Exactech. Broadspire will only reimburse for medical expenses paid that insurance did not cover.

This significantly reduces the amount of money 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.
