Faulty And Dangerous Breast Implants

Recent media coverage surrounding potentially faulty and dangerous breast implants may well just be the tip of the iceberg according to one local law firm.

Margaret Crausby Senior Partner at Recovery Assist, the Walmersley Road based law firm said “The recent publicity around the French made Poly Implant Prothese (PIP) implants has served to highlight some of the dangers that are now associated with the cosmetic surgery business, but this may well be just the beginning. Regulation across parts of the industry is, at best sketchy, with minimal training required before practitioners can administertreatments. Nevertheless, all practitioners owe their patients or clients a duty of care and we can assist when things have gone wrong”

The latest reports show that up to 45,000 women in the UK may have been affected by the PIP implants and Margaret went on to say “Our advice to those who have been affected in the first instance would be for concerned women to contact their GP, or the surgeon who carried out their operation. However, we have been made aware of cases where the original company have gone out of business or relocated and quite often it can be difficult for a client to identify which type of implants were used in their procedure. In these cases, we can assist in identifying the type of implants and thus also identify the level of risk.”

 The Government has announced that it would replace the implants for those women who have had PIP implants for reconstructive reasons on the NHS and they have also called for private clinics to follow suit and offer the replacement implants or removal.

Whilst Margaret Crausby welcomed this development she added “whilst there is no compulsion for private clinics to replace these implants free of charge, I would urge anybody with concerns about their procedure or with difficulties in identifying the type of implants used, to contact myself or one of my team.”

Margaret Crausby and the team at Recovery Assist specialises in compensation claims for injuries and accidents at beauty salons and cosmetic clinics. Contact Margaret today on 0161 762 4949 for free confidential advice from an expert in this area of law.
