Exactech Joint Replacement Lawsuit Attorneys in Gainesville
Do You Have a Defective Exactech Joint Replacement?
Exactech is a brand of joint replacements, inserts, and liners, many of which are designed to replace knees, ankles, and hips. In recent years, thousands of these medical products have been recalled by Exactech for an unusually high failure rate. If you had an Exactech joint replacement system that failed on you, and you needed revision surgery or suffered an injury due to it, then you should explore your legal options immediately.
Schackow & Mercadante in Gainesville is currently investigating Exactech joint replacement failure claims. Lawsuits are already forming against Exactech. Don’t miss your opportunity to demand justice and compensation, too. The statute of limitations to file a claim could be limited, so please reach out today.

Injuries Caused by Failed Exactech Devices
Exactech joint replacement devices can cause severe health complications if they fail. The type of injury or complication can depend on what type of Exactech device failed, such as an ankle, hip, or knee replacement device. Our attorneys are well-versed in medical product liability cases, so we can investigate and work on your claim, no matter what type of Exactech device you had surgically implanted.
Injuries caused by defective Exactech joint replacements can include:
- Accelerated bone loss
- Bone fractures or cracks
- Loose or migrating liners or inserts
- Chronic pain at the surgery site
Among all the cases of Exactech joint replacement device failures, most patients require revision surgery to correct the issue and/or replace the device. Revision surgery will always have its own risks, so all the risks that can happen in revision surgery apply to Exactech joint replacement failure risks, too.
