An estimated 50,000 women were affected by the PIP implants scandal, where French company Poly Implant Prostheses used non-medical grade silicone gel in its breast implants.  The silicone was found to be prone to rupture, requiring surgery to have them removed.

Those particular implants were banned back in 2010, and most breast enlargements and reductions are carried out successfully. 

Surgeons and healthcare professionals have a duty of care when providing cosmetic surgery, to ensure your safety – if complications do arise you have the right to seek justice and compensation.

Why should I claim compensation for breast implants gone wrong?

As well as being very upsetting and frightening, you will have to face the prospect of treatment and possible corrective surgery.  This is something that can cost in terms of time and money.

If your experience is due to medical negligence, claiming a compensation settlement can help ease any financial pressures, such as medical costs, travel for treatment, loss of earnings and any medication you’re required to take.  Allowing you to concentrate on recovery.

  • Pain and suffering you’ve been through; physical as well as emotional. This is known as general damages.
  • Whether you have had to take time off work, resulting in loss of earnings.
  • Medical costs and ongoing treatment or corrective surgery
  • Travel to medical appointments
