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:

  1. I had Allergan Natrelle Silicone Style 115 implants for almost 6 years, I had an explant 3/28/2019, before explant I had so many BII symptoms, 90% of these symptoms are now gone. Thank you for caring so much, getting us all of the information and connecting us together.

  2. I had over 30 BII symptoms since 2017. I had Mentor Smooth saline implants since 2014. I have over $20,000 in dental and vision out of pocket expenses. I live in VA. Thought I had an attorney until after his research could not find a medical expert willing to say definitively the implants were the cause of my illnesses, thus no direct evidence he would not pursue the case any further. He was also concerned lawyers could not get past US pre-emption. I explanted Oct 7, 2019 and no issues with my implants. I’m looking for a contingency lawyer and willing to represent me and preferably not by a class action suit. I NEED at least my medical bills covered and would love pain and suffering. I’m praying there is an attorney willing to take my case. Someone please help me.

  3. Thank you for the information! 2001 Mentor Saline, style unknown. Contacted Mentor, no record of PS making a Mentor implant order until Dec. 2001, my implanted May 2001. Received a black and white zeroed copy of a lifetime warranty replacement for deflation due to crease fold, trauma, loss of valve integrity, shell integrity? So who knows what this PS actually implanted? Sick since 2008, autoimmune, more Dr., ER, blood test then should ever be normal, and no diagnosis.

  4. Nicole,
    I am ecstatic that you continue to pursue answers for our path. I have had 3 sets of implants for over half my life. I explanted the 3rd time on April 2, 2019 and had to pay for their removal out of pocket due to “Medicare” regulations. I saw the FDA meeting in March and knew that I had to get those toxins out of my body. I am going to try and appeal Medicare’s denial, but would appreciate anyone’s advice/experience with this.

    Also, any input on joining a lawsuit would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks so much!

  5. Thank u for your self-less support of so many women around the world. You are truly making a difference & I’m so appreciative of all of your hard-work & efforts. God Bless from Mississippi.

  6. I have McGhan textured implants from 1991.
    I have medical documentation regarding leakage/rupture with implants capsular contraction. I have many medical issues
