Breast Implant Attorneys in El Paso & Las Cruces
At the Ruhmann Law Firm, our Las Cruces & El Paso breast implant lawyers are experienced mass torts attorneys who closely follow all U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued warnings to ensure our New Mexico & Texas residents have the resources they need to pursue manufacturers and drug companies for the financial compensation they deserve when their health and safety are in jeopardy from the use of one of their products.
According to the FDA, and the ongoing Allergan breast implant lawsuits, Allergan Inc. — now a part of AbbVie — and its subsidiaries did not properly warn women that their textured breast implants carried an increased risk for developing a specific type of cancer when implanted.
The cancer is called breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma, or BIA-ALCL, and according to the FDA, “the risk of BIA-ALCL with Allergan BIOCELL textured implants is approximately six times the risk of BIA-ALCL with textured implants from other manufacturers.”
What is Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma?
Breast implant-associated anaplastic large-cell lymphoma is a rare type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma that arises specifically in women with implants.
The FDA has since asked Allergan to recall the defective breast implants to protect patients from the risks associated with their use.
To date, nearly 250,000 BIOCELL implants have been recalled in the U.S., according to a New Jersey judge’s recent order.
At issue, still, is that Allergan refuses to pay the implants’ users for the cost of explant surgeries to remove the implants or for ongoing monitoring and testing for BIA-ALCL.
As lawsuits move forward, like the ones our Las Cruces & El Paso breast implant attorneys are pursuing our clients who have contracted BIA-ALCL because of their implants, we will continue to fight for women throughout New Mexico and Texas who deserve skilled legal representation that produces results.
