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:

  2. I am from Alberta Canada. I just received a phone call from my plastic surgeon on Jan 21st 2020. He informed me about the BIA ALCL cancer that textured implants can cause, and told me that the type of textured implants used in my reconstructive surgery were the type causing a rare type of Lymphoma in patients and I would have to be tested right away. I have had my implants since 2005. He also informed me about Breast Implant Illness. I had seen an article last year about this, but never thought much of it, only because before I had my implants I was already suffering with Fibromyalgia and the symptoms I had were very similar to Breast implant illness symptoms. But this last week I have been doing a lot of research into this illness and discovered that I had a lot more symptoms that are not Fibromyalgia involved. These problems have been stumping the specialist i have been seeing, as to the causes of these issues. My Fibromyalgia symptoms after all of my Breast Cancer surgeries had doubled almost over night, and doctors told me that was to be expected because it is a very stressful time. But they never settled down but instead continued to get worse every year. I can no longer work. I am confined to my bed most of the time. My marriage suffered until it finally broke. My relationship with my 4 children suffered greatly and then became strained because I could no longer do anything with them or ever go a watch them do things. They hated seeing me like I was, so they started staying away, and I cant blame them. I am no longer living a life, I am just surviving. I am in so must pain now that I had started looking up Dr assisted suicide in Canada and what was all involved so I would be ready when I couldn’t take it anymore. I used to be an athlete, a very involved mother and wife, I loved being in nature, being with people, I was a partner in a home started business that was growing , I loved the job I had outside the home, before my Breast Cancer and Reconstruction surgeries. I no longer have any of that. And now I know its because of something I chose to put inside my own body. Something I was told was safe. I’m having trouble wrapping my mind around all of this, and would like some help figuring out what comes next. I am mad as hell and want this disrespect and disregard for womens health to be put front and center for once. So the world can see what has been done. There is no doubt in my mind, that if this was penile implants causing Illness like this and Lymphoma, that the problem would have been fixed years ago. It’s not right and it needs to stop and it needs to stop now!!

  3. My name is Betty Nimcheski, I had implants placed in 92 they ruptured I got cancer had a double mastectomy they placed expanders in told me they were safe… to make a long story short I ended up getting MRSA and another infection. I’m going on my seventh year of reconstructive surgeries. I am still not done. I go in for my 11th surgery on March 10th I was bedridden for two and a half years I now have fibromyalgia I’m sick everyday. I’ve lost everything I had a 6 bedroom 4 Story 4 bath home. I had a great job, I was married that’s all gone. I’m on disability now living in the worst conditions that anyone can imagine. I wore my vehicle out chasing doctors for six and a half years. I have nothing left because of breast implants mentor that were ruptured in me and because of doctors chopping on me. I had no idea it was my implants until I started thinking that’s the only thing it could have been but now I have an autoimmune disease and we’ll never get well. I have about 50 for different symptoms.
