There are many reasons why a woman may want to have a contraceptive implant fitted. If she knows she does not want children for the foreseeable future and she does not want to take regular tablets to prevent pregnancies, there are other options. One of these is known as a contraceptive implant. It is generally implanted under the skin on the upper arm, on the inside so the minor scarring left behind cannot be seen.
While the vast majority of implants work successfully and do not present any cause for concern, a small number of women have experienced problems with them. As with any minor procedure of this or any other type, there is a potential for problems to occur. One woman had her implant put in the wrong place and required two procedures to have it removed. This led to further scarring and pain that could have been prevented if it had been inserted correctly to begin with.
This is one of the reasons why you should always seek legal advice if you feel you have suffered a contraceptive implant injury. This might even extend to an unplanned pregnancy that has occurred as a result of relying on the implant and suspecting it did not work.
Could your contraceptive implant lead to compensation for you?
Regardless of the situation, if you feel you did suffer as a result of this type of implant, you should contact a professional injury compensation lawyer now for more information. There is a deadline during which you must get help and start a case if you wish to qualify for potential compensation. It can be difficult to tell whether you are in a position to claim compensation, so if you can consult the right person from the beginning you stand a chance of resolving things to your satisfaction.
