Breast Implant Lawsuits Filed Globally

Since our last update there has been a growing number of lawsuits filed globally in court systems due to harm caused by breast implants.  In the U.S. some early cases were dismissed due to U.S. pre-emption however three cases have now passed a stage(s) of pre-emption, the Gravitt versus Mentor Case Number in Illinois, the Sumpter versus Allergan case in Missouri and the Graham versus Mentor case in St Louis.  Since the FDA announcement of textured implants causing BIA-ALCL cancer, BIA-ALCL cases continue to be filed and since textured implants were pulled from markets in Europe and Canada, two Canadian lawfirms requested to file class action lawsuits against three textured implant manufacturers selling implants in Canada; Mentor, Allergan and Ideal for failing to warn Canadians about the potential of BIA-ALCL cancer.  Another Canadian lawfirm filed a request for a potential class action against Mentor silicone for systemic symptoms caused by Mentor silicone breast implants.   Recently and since Allergan pulled their textured implants from the U.S. market other class actions against Allergan textured implants may be underway in the U.S. and other countries.

Defective Breast Implants are Viable Cases

Breast implants are warranted to be safe and last a certain amount of time.  A warranty is a guarantee that the product will perform in a certain way or will conform to certain standards. If the breast implant is defective and ruptures, leaks or becomes deformed before it’s warranty period expires and causes you harm or the breast implant is deemed to be safe and causes you a serious disease such as BIA-ALCL you may have a case.  

Informed Consent Not Given to Women

Informed Consent
Not Given to Women

Many women implanted with breast implants were not given prior informed consent before surgery as required.  Prior informed consent before surgery is mandated and outlined by the FDA in the Pre-Market Assessment Letters and the Post Approval Study Criterias.  Failing to give proper informed consent to users as mandated by the FDA and noncompliance may result in lawsuits passing pre-emption.  We have collected some of the Pre-Market Assessment/ Post Approval Study Letters so you can read and assess if you were given proper informed consent prior to surgery:

    07/29/19 bilateral mastectomy due to cancer and Mentor Artoura smooth high profile tissue expanders implanted
    09/06/19 L expander explanted due to rare infection, Staphylococcus lugdunensis.
    11/27/19 L expander reimplanted
    05/18/20 expanders explanted and Mentor, 755 cc smooth, round moderate plus profile breast implants (surgery delayed 2 months due to COVID-19)
    I expressed concerns about pain, itchiness, and other symptoms prior to permanent implants. I felt like I had poison ivy inside me. Asked about allergy to silicone or metal of expanders. Dr. suggested that it would all go away with removal of expanders and there is no such thing as allergy to silicone. Expanders did not stay in place, turned around inside me. I saw a dermatologist, but itchiness was not ON skin, it was underneath. Nothing changed with implants. Poison ivy feeling continued, GI troubles, joint issues, vision issues, and more on the list of symptoms of BII over the year with expanders/implants. I saw an allergist, who reached out to Johnson & Johnson for materials of implants so she could properly test for allergy. J&J refused. I have seen numerous doctors for health issues, unaware of BII and the list of symptoms. Couldn’t believe how many boxes I checked when I found the list. Now, the pieces start to fall in place.
    08/21/20 Explant scheduled. Let’s hope it’s soon enough to reverse the symptoms. My quality of life is very low with the implants. BII is REAL, and doctors should include BII in the list of risks of implantation.

    Implanted to correct tubular breast in 2006 after hysterectomy to feel more feminine. I have been sick for years. Disabled in 2015. In the process of scheduling my explant.

    I explained in late 2018 but now have been diagnosed with an auto immune disorder. I’m concerned over my future health and the problems I may still face post explant. My list of issue pre explant are far and wide. I wish I had never put them in my body.
