Filing an Allergan Lawsuit
If you’ve suffered cancer of the immune system following Allergan breast implants, you may need to speak to a lawyer. You may be due compensation for your losses.
Certain types of breast implants and tissue expanders have been connected to dangerous diseases. Unfortunately, that means you may have developed certain cancers following your implant surgery. Specifically, Allergan has been pinpointed during a recall from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), citing a higher risk of disease while using these implants.
If you’ve been harmed by your breast implants, you may be due compensation for your losses. Talk to your lawyer at Craig Swapp & Associates about filing an Allergan lawsuit so you can seek the compensation you need.
Medical Risks of Allergan Breast Implants
Breast implants are typically made from silicone and can be used with relative safety. They’re even sometimes used by those who have suffered breast cancer and had breast tissue removed. But, Allergan BIOCELL textured breast implants and tissue expanders have recently been recalled by the FDA.
The FDA recalled these breast implants because of the risks of developing breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). This is a type of cancer that affects the immune system that is associated with certain breast implants.
This condition isn’t associated evenly with implants across the board. The FDA found that Allergan BIOCELL textured breast implants are six times riskier than other textured implants in the U.S. People in Utah, Idaho, and Washington state with this type of implant may have a chance to seek compensation for their related losses.
What Can You Do about an Allergan Lawsuit?
If you’ve suffered from BIA-ALCL because of your breast implants, you’re not alone. Hundreds have reported this condition after using Allergan breast implants, and now, many are planning to file a class action lawsuit against the manufacturer.
Class action lawsuits offer a chance for multiple injury victims to work together against one defendant. These types of lawsuits, also called mass torts, offer a chance to seek compensation as a group.
Fighting for compensation on your own against a corporation can be scary. Even with a lawyer who specializes in Allergan lawsuits on your side, it can be difficult to win against a major corporation.
Knowing you’re not the only one seeking help can make it easier, though. Reach out for help if you’re considering filing a claim against a corporation but you’re worried about acting alone.
