Exactech Knee Replacement Recall Lawsuit

As a personal injury lawyer, I have seen the devastating effects that defective medical devices can have on patients firsthand. One such device that has caused serious harm to patients is the Exactech Optetrak Knee Replacement System.

This device has been subject to a recall due to its high failure rate, leading to painful complications and the need for revision surgery. Patients who have received the Exactech Optetrak Knee Replacement System may experience a range of complications, including severe pain, instability, limited range of motion, and joint dislocation.

These complications can significantly impact a patient’s quality of life and require costly medical treatment. If you or a loved one has been affected by the Exactech Optetrak Knee Replacement System, it is important to seek legal representation to protect your rights and pursue fair compensation.


The Exactech Optetrak Knee Replacement System Recall

The Exactech Optetrak Knee Replacement System isn’t just any recalled product; it’s one that directly affects a person’s mobility and quality of life. In 2019, Exactech issued a recall of its Optetrak Knee Replacement System due to a high rate of failure. In fact, It’s estimated that over 7,500 patients in the United States may have been affected by this recall.  Patients who’d received the implant reported experiencing pain, swelling, and instability, which often required revision surgery.

If you or a loved one has received an Exactech Optetrak Knee Replacement System and experienced complications, it’s important to seek legal help. You may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.  

Complications Experienced by Patients

You may have experienced complications if you’ve received an Exactech Optetrak Knee Replacement System. Some of the most common complaints include pain, swelling, and difficulty walking. Many patients also report that their knee feels unstable or wobbly, making it difficult to perform everyday tasks.

In some cases, patients may require additional surgery to correct these issues. This can be both physically and financially taxing, as the cost of knee replacement surgery can be quite high. Additionally, the recovery process can be lengthy and painful, requiring patients to take time off work and avoid certain activities for an extended period of time.

If you’ve experienced complications as a result of an Exactech Optetrak Knee Replacement System, you may be entitled to compensation. Contacting a lawyer who specializes in product liability cases can help you explore your legal options and determine the best course of action. With the right legal representation, you may be able to recover damages for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.


Lawsuits Against Exactech

If you’re wondering what’s happening with the legal cases against the manufacturers of the Optetrak Knee Replacement System, there have been numerous lawsuits filed by patients who have experienced complications after receiving the implant.

These lawsuits allege that the manufacturer, Exactech, failed to properly test and warn about the potential risks associated with the device. Additionally, patients claim that Exactech misrepresented the safety and effectiveness of the Optetrak Knee Replacement System.

The complications experienced by patients include pain, swelling, instability, and implant failure, among others. Some patients have also required revision surgery to correct the issues caused by the knee replacement system.

The lawsuits against Exactech seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages resulting from these complications. As the lawsuits move forward, it remains to be seen how Exactech will respond to the allegations made by patients.  However, seeking proven legal counsel is critical to maximizing your settlement or awad.

If you have received an Optetrak Knee Replacement System and are experiencing complications, it’s important to speak with an experienced attorney to determine your legal options.

You may be entitled to compensation for the harm caused by the device.
