    Injured by silicone implants?

    In 2010, the world was shocked to discover that French manufacturers Poly Implants Prostheses had been using industrial-grade silicone, which had never been tested for medical use, in its breast implants since 2001. Authorities then discovered that these industrial-grade breast implants caused an increased risk of rupture, which can often be ‘silent,’ meaning that the affected woman will have no symptoms other than discomfort.

    Dangers of silicone implants

    Even when industrial-grade silicone hasn’t been used, silicone implants still present a myriad of dangers including rupture, toxic shock syndrome, breast tissue atrophy, asymmetry, extrusion, infection, lymphadenopathy, necrosis, loss of nipple sensation, visibility, and wrinkling. Although you should be warned of all of these dangers before giving your informed consent to the procedure, it’s still possible that the reason you have developed complications is because your surgery was not performed correctly. If this is the case, you may be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation.

    Claiming personal injury compensation due to botched silicone implants

    Many women undergo breast surgery due to low self-esteem. When their surgery goes wrong and results in misshapen or badly scarred breasts, this can have dire psychological consequences. For this reason, it’s very common for botched breast surgery to result in claims for personal injury compensation. Whether or not claims will be successful depends on whether or not their surgeons have been negligent in any way.

    If you’d like to learn more about medical malpractice and personal injury compensation, call our expert advisers at  Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500. They’ll be able to tell you whether or not your claim is likely to be successful and how much compensation you could potentially receive. Although you’re under no obligation to make a claim simply by making a call, if you’d like to do so it can most likely be done entirely over the telephone, with the minimum of fuss to yourself, and on a no win, no fee basis.
