Compensation for Industrial Silicone Implants

Plastic surgery is a technique that is becoming increasingly popular across the UK as more and more people search for that level of perfection. In recent years one of the most popular surgical techniques has been a breast implant procedure and the popularity of this specific technique has helped to drive the price down and make the procedure increasingly safe, attracting more and more women to go under the knife.

In recent months there has been a great deal of exposure in the news about implants and in particular the now infamous PIP implants which have been found to be unhealthy for the human body. In contrast to using a medical-grade silicone which is associated with general implants, a French company has been found responsible of using a far cheaper industrial grade silicone which can be potentially dangerous to the human body.

If you have been left with injuries as the result of faulty implants then you could be eligible to make a claim against your surgeon, or against the implant manufacturer for compensation to cover any medical costs that you have incurred.

What injuries could I receive from faulty industrial silicone implants?

If you have received faulty implants then you could be at risk of the following injuries:

  • Injuries received from exploding implants
  • Injuries received from implants which leak
  • Poisoning from industry-grade silicone
  • Scarring and other related injuries from the implant surgery
  • Infection to the localised area. 

Who could I claim against?

When it comes to making a compensation claim for industrial silicone implants then you are eligible to claim against anyone who you feel has been negligent towards you. This could include your surgeon if you feel that they have been negligent in giving you poor quality implants. If your surgeon was unaware of the dangers of the implants then you could make a claim against the company who has manufactured the product for their negligence.
