Exactech Recall

As the volume of Exactech implant recall lawsuits continues to grow, some plaintiffs have become concerned that Exactech may not have enough money to cover the liabilities. These concerns have recently prompted most Exactech recall plaintiffs to reach for additional possible defendants in their product liability lawsuits.

One of the more recent Exactech recall lawsuits to reach for additional corporate defendants is Brendan Leddy, et al. v. Eaxctech, Inc., et al. (1:23-cv-00929), which was filed directly in the Exactech MDL in the Eastern District of New York on February 6, 2023. In this post we will take a detailed look at the allegations in this case, including the collection of defendants named in the Complaint.

Facts of the Case

Exactech is a major manufacturer of implants used in total knee replacement and total ankle replacement surgeries. Over 150,000 people have Exactech implants in their knee or ankle. Exactech recently initiated a recall of all these implants due to a defect that causes the implants to wear out and fail prematurely.

In the wake of the Exactech recall and the class action lawsuit, thousands of patients with Exactech implants may file product liability lawsuits seeking financial compensation for the pain and expense associated with the premature failure of their joint implant.  These suits are being filed in the class action lawsuit in New York.  But there are also state court claims that are being filed, mostly in Florida.

In December 2022, Exactech’s defense team sent a letter to MDL Judge Garaufis last week explaining the status of their effort to get formal coordination between the federal MDL and the state court MDL in Florida. Exactech is pushing hard for the discovery in the state and federal proceedings to be combined to avoid doubling their defense costs. The plaintiffs in the Florida state court MDL have opposed this request.

Exactech Connexion GXL Recall

Exactech, a leading manufacturer of joint replacement implants, recently initiated a comprehensive recall of all its Vantage® implant systems used in total surgeries replacement surgeries. These ankle implants have been on the market since 2016 and used in thousands of procedures.
The recall was launched after the Exactech learned that a manufacturing flaw with the product packaging was causing the polyethylene insert component in the ankle implants to degrade and not function properly. This defect causes the ankle implants to prematurely fail, causing acute pain and ultimately requiring patients to undergo additional revision surgery.
