How Hasner Law, PC Can Help if You’ve Been Harmed By Defective Allergan Breast Implants

Why Are People Filing Allergan Breast Implant Lawsuits?
Allergan textured breast implants are associated with breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma, or BIA-ALCL. This is a rare type of breast cancer linked exclusively to textured breast implants like Allergan’s. The texture in the implant creates scar tissue as it moves and adjusts in the body. Fluid builds up and can lead to tumor growth.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found that of 573 reported cases of BIA-ALCL, 84 percent were linked to Allergan textured breast implants. A study by the FDA found that Allergan implants were six times more likely to cause the patient to develop cancer than other types of implants.
In July 2019, the FDA issued a recall for the following medical devices:
Allergan Natrelle Saline-Filled Textured Breast Implants
- Allergan Natrelle Silicone-Filled Textured Breast Implants
- Allergan Natrelle 133 Plus Tissue Expander
- Allergan BIOCELL implants, including Natrelle 133 Tissue Expander with Suture Tabs and Natrelle 410 Highly Cohesive Anatomically Shaped Silicone-Filled Textured Breast Implants
However, by then, considerable damage had been done. Thousands of women had received Allergan textured breast implants and were at risk of developing BIA-ALCL.
Since it can take up to a decade for symptoms of breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma to appear, many women are just now learning that they are at risk or have developed cancer.
Many are demanding compensation for their injuries by filing lawsuits against Allergan, alleging that the implants were defective.
Companies like Allergan have a responsibility to put safe medical devices on the market. There’s an obligation to design them safely, manufacture them correctly, and warn about any known risks or dangers. When a company fails to do these things, it can be held strictly liable for resulting injuries and trauma.
How Long Do I Have to File an Allergan Natrelle Textured Breast Implant Lawsuit in Georgia?
There is one exception: if your case is based on Allergan’s failure to warn you about potential risks, hazards, or dangers associated with the textured implant. In that case, the statute of repose would not apply.
