What’s the problem?
January 19, 2018 – The suit was filed by Plaintiff Diane Stanesic, who claims she underwent a total knee arthroplasty with a defective Exactech Optetrak knee implant. As a result of problems with the device, Stanesic needed revision surgery to remove the device, according to the lawsuit.
The complaint was filed Jan.9 in the Western District of Pennsylvania. Plaintiff is charging Exactech with manufacturing defect, negligent misrepresentation, and other counts.
Plaintiff holds Exactech responsible because she believes the company manufactured an unreasonably dangerous and defectively designed product, and was negligent for introducing such a device into the marketplace.
Stanesic is seeking a trial by jury and damages in excess of $75,000 for medical, incidental and hospital expenses; interest; consequential damages that exceed the limit of the court; compensatory damages that exceed the limit of the court; court costs and any further relief the court grants.
The lawsuit is: U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania case number 2:18-cv-00046-CB.
