About faulty breast implant claims

Silicone breast implants have been a controversial topic for some time due to the strong connection with connective tissue disease. For this reason, silicone gel-filled breast implants are classed as high-risk products and are regulated under the Therapeutic Goods Act (1999).

Injury occurs when the implant leaks due to manufacturing defects and causes a reaction in the body. The most common reaction is connective tissue disease, which is caused when the leaked silicone generates antibodies that attack collagen, a component of connective tissue.

Who is responsible?

Manufacturers have a responsibility to create products that are safe to use and are produced to a high standard, and must provide relevant and correct information regarding their products. Often, manufacturers are guilty of telling women that implants will last a lifetime and there is only a very small chance that an implant will rupture. However, studies suggest otherwise and that ruptures are linked with the age of an implant.

The procedure itself can also be dangerous and those in charge of your care are responsible for telling you about the risks involved in the surgery.

If you have suffered an injury related to a faulty breast implant due to the negligence of a manufacturer or surgeon, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation and should contact YouClaim today.
