Allergan Breast Implant Cancer Recall Lawsuits

Our Lawyers Are Helping People File Allergan Breast Implant Lawsuits

Allergan Breast Implant Cancer Recall Lawsuits 1Research shows that Allergan BIOCELL textured breast implants and tissue expanders lead to an increased risk of cancer. The cancer is called BIA-ALCL, short for breast implant-associated – aplastic large cell lymphoma. BIA-ACLC is a specific type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma related directly to breast implants.

Allergan recalled BIOCELL textured breast implants and tissue expanders because of the danger they pose. Lawsuits are being filed by women across the country who received the now-recalled implants.

Some of these women have developed breast implant cancer, resulting in invasive surgeries, chemotherapy and/or radiation.

For other women, the fear of developing BIA-ACLC was enough to have the dangerous Allergen breast implants removed and replaced.

Our lawyers at Alonso Krangle, LLP, can help determine if you are eligible to file a recalled breast implant lawsuit against Allergan. If you have (or had) Allergan textured breast implants and developed cancer, you might be entitled to collect compensation from Allergan.

A lawsuit may be the last thing on your mind as you battle cancer and try to heal, but payments can aid in your financial and emotional recovery. We can fight for compensation for cancer caused by Allergan breast implants while you fight for your health.

Timeline of Allergan Breast Implants and Lawsuits

Allergan makes breast implants and tissue expanders. It is a large pharmaceutical company based in Ireland that distributes and sells its products around the globe. People have filed lawsuits against Allergan for producing and selling breast implants that increase the risk of cancer in the US and other countries.

The danger of Allergan’s textured implants has been known since at least 2019.

July 6, 2019– the FDA received (to date) 573 reports of BIA-ALCL. The FDA determined that 481 of the cases of BIA-ALCL can be attributed to Allergen textured breast implants
July 24, 2019 – Allergan issues a global recall of all of its BIOCELL textured breast implants and tissue expanders.

September 2019 – a woman from Illinois files a proposed class-action lawsuit. She claims that Allergan knew for years before the recall that its textured implants increased cancer risk.
October 2019 – two additional lawsuits are filed by women in Florida. These women seek compensation for the cost of surgically removing the dangerous breast implants and replacing them.

June 1, 2020 – the FDA updated its safety communication about the Allergan textured breast implant recall. The communication announced that Allergan was beginning a multi-channel campaign to spread awareness about the BIOCELL textured breast implant recall to patients who might not know they are at risk.

What Are the Dangers of Textured Breast Implants?

Many studies link breast implants to cancer, some of which date back to 2011. The studies show that textured breast implants can cause what is known as “breast implant-associated anaplastic large-cell lymphoma” of BIA-ALCL. It is not breast cancer. It is a non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which affects the immune system. The World Health Organization characterized BIA-ALCL as a type of T-cell lymphoma that can form after breast implant surgery.

BIA-ALCL, when diagnosed early, might be treatable through surgery only. However, chemotherapy and radiation are often necessary factors for a full recovery. Diagnosis and treatment come with high costs, financially, physically, and emotionally.

What Is Breast Implant Cancer and What are the Symptoms?

Breast implant cancer is not breast cancer. It is a type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which is a cancer of the lymphatic system.

Anaplastic large-cell lymphoma associated with breast implants is usually found in nearby scar tissue and surrounding fluid. Sometimes, however, it spreads throughout the entire body. BIA-ALCL can be fatal.

The FDA received reports that of the 33 women who died of breast cancer implant cancer, 13 of them had breast implants of known origin. Of those 13, 12 were confirmed to have Allergan textured breast implants at the time of their cancer diagnosis.

Some symptoms of BIA-ALCL can include:

  • Fatigue
  • Changes in the external appearance of the breast
  • Asymmetry of the breast
  • Enlargement of the breast
  • Hardening of the breast
  • Pain
  • Rash
  • Swelling
  • Redness or rash
  • Breast or armpit lumps
  • Unexplainable weight loss

I consider David Krangle as my attorney for many years now. Going back about 13 years ago my father was involved in a hit and run accident. David had gone the extra mile to win our case…..

He has helped a number of my friends and relatives and they all appreciated his professionalism, prompt responses to any inquiry during case development, careful study of all details pertaining to their case.

When you have to fight Goliath you better call David. Dave was absolutely instrumental in helping me expose Medicare fraud that my former employer (one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world) was engaging in. Dave took the time to listen to my concerns and my evidence. He worked tirelessly to bring the best resources to table so that our case would be investigated thoroughly and prosecuted. In the end, the Goliath was defeated thanks to Dave!

Strongly Recommend Alonso Krangle As a Highly Experienced And Respected Firm

I consulted a close friend and well respected lawyer in the mid-Atlantic region regarding my hip revision surgery due to a medical device recall. Without hesitation, he strongly recommended contacting Alonso Krangle LLP to discuss my case. In his view, Alonso Krangle possessed extensive knowledge and experience in the type of litigation my case required, as well the respect of those throughout the judicial field for their professionalism. Equally as important, their personal focus on each individual’s case gives the client a feeling they are their only concern. My friend’s assessment could not have been more accurate.

Although in New York, Alonso Krangle could not have been more responsive or accommodating if they were located here in Virginia. I cannot recall a single time when my wife or I called their office and did not speak to either Andres Alonso or David Krangle. They were always completely available and ready to answer any and all of our questions. Their advice and recommendations were always honest, sincere, and accurate enabling us to plan accordingly. Legal proceedings can be a long process, but we never felt left out or forgotten thanks to timely updates initiated by Alonso Krangle. In the end, everything turned out as Alonso Krangle estimated from the beginning. I could not have expected better personal attention or concern from a family member handling my case. As with my friend, I too, would not hesitate to strongly recommend Alonso Krangle as a highly experienced and respected firm that will treat you like family.

You’ll be in good hands!

I was involved in an accident and needed a good Personal Injury Attorney. A friend referred me to David Krangle of Alonso Krangle LLP. After my initial phone conversation with David, I was confident that I found the right Attorney. David was not only extremely thorough, he kept me updated on every stage of my case. Most importantly, he was always available for questions and followed-up promptly. In most cases, the same day. Since there was a 3-hour time zone difference, I was very appreciative from a client stand point.

With his expertise and guidance, I had a successful outcome. I felt very fortunate that David and his wonderful staff represented me.

If you ever find yourself in need of expert legal advice and guidance. I highly recommend you contact David Krangle of Alonso Krangle LLP. You’ll be in good hands!

It was a very difficult time in my life but dealing with everyone at Alonso Krangle made it so much easier to get through everything. I can’t thank them enough for going above and beyond for me.

We were very fortunate to meet David Krangle
My husband and myself had been involved in a multiple vehicle accident 5 years ago. At that time we were given the name of Mr. David Krangle, attorney. It took close to 5 years of very diligent work for Mr Krangle to complete our case to everyone’s satisfaction. During those years of endless hours and hours of work that he put into our case yet whenever we reached out to Dave (as the years allowed us to call him) he was always available to us. His patience did seem endless. His professionalism in researching everything to make our turnout perfect for us was everything we expected and let us rest knowing things are following the right path. I know we were treated with the utmost respect from various insurance companies and other attorney’s because that was something Mr Krangle made sure of. In difficult times it can be intimidating to work with a professional but we were very fortunate to meet David Krangle who had the ability to share warmth and compassion with us during a trying time. Those are traits that we admired in David Krangle and are delighted to have worked with him.

Thank you for your years of service
