I pride myself on tirelessly fighting for the injury victims who continuously trust me with their cases. It is an honor to serve and a passion which drives my existence.

Defective Implant Claims

Every year, more than 300,000 women undergo breast augmentation, but like other medical procedures, there’s always the risk of defective equipment or implant defects. If you have even the slightest worry that your implant might be defective, it’s vital to seek immediate medical attention.

Defective implants can cause permanent scarring, leakage, painful swelling, and in some cases, cause BIA-ACL or other serious conditions. After getting treatment from a medical professional, you should consult a lawyer about the physical, emotional, and financial harm that was caused by the defective implant. Most of the time, with a medical report, proof of damages, a compelling claim, and an experienced St. Louis Defective Implant Lawyer, victims can recover compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other general and special damages caused by their defective implants.

Symptoms of a Defective Implant<

The safety of breast implants has been under debate for years. Some medical professionals believe that the type of implant used (silicone vs. saline) is what causes complications, while others claim that the texture of implants (textured vs. smooth) is responsible. While there isn’t a definitive answer of what causes BIA-ACL, breast implant sickness and other conditions linked to defective implants, the most common symptoms of a defective implant include:

  • Breast pain or numbness
  • Unevenness or a sudden change in the appearance of implants
  • Leaking or swollen breasts
  • Lumps surrounding the implant or in areas approximate to the implant
  • Hardening of implants that is typically accompanied by severe breast pain or tightness of the chest

While breast implants aren’t meant to last a lifetime, and over time, lose shape, soften, and decrease in quality, this shouldn’t happen for at least 7 to 12 years after insertion. Similarly, if you experience pain, numbness, or leaking of any sort, this is considered abnormal, and should be assessed by a medical professional as soon as possible.

Defective Implant Claims | St. Louis Defective Implant Lawyers

If a breast implant is defective, you likely have grounds for a lawsuit against the surgeon that performed the surgery, or the manufacturer of the implants. Defective implant claims aren’t uncommon; implants have a significant chance of rupturing during or after insertion (In a 2013 study, it was found that 51 to 64% of implant ruptures were caused by surgical instruments during the initial implant surgery). And recently, it was identified that textured silicone breast implants are linked to a rare form of non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma called BIA-ACL.

While a link between implants and cancer has long been suspected, it wasn’t confirmed until February of this year, when over 500 women came forward with cancer-related implant claims. The FDA has since closely monitored the situation, and in July, requested that global pharmaceutical company, Allergan, remove their BIOCELL textured breast implants from the market, after 481 of the 573 textured breast implant claims, and 12 out of 33 deaths, were attributed to Allergan textured breast implants.

In July, a class-action lawsuit was brought against Allergan by investors. Victims of defective Allergan implants are encouraged to join the suit and recoup some of the damages they experienced because of the implants. However, victims of non-Allergan defective implants should also come forward, speak with a St. Louis Defective Implant Lawyer, and determine if they can recover compensation.
