Silicone Breast Implant
Anthony Quackenbush is a Florida Silicone Breast Implant Lawyer helping women who’ve been hurt by silicone breast implants. Silicone breast implant surgeries have been occurring in the United States since 1962. The Food and Drug Administration has at times put restrictions on the procedures, but their use has continued. Nevertheless, many women have, and continue to be, injured due to silicone breast implants. All sorts of injuries have occurred, and all sorts of diseases and conditions have resulted.
At one point, there was a “revised settlement program” developed to help compensate women who were injured by breast implants manufactured by Baxter, Bristol, Mentor, 3M and Post-84 McGhan. Women who were injured by breast implants manufactured by Mentor, Cox-Uphoff, and Bioplasty also received payments – although not necessarily as large. Nevertheless, this revised settlement program is now closed and women hurt by breast implants can no longer recover compensation in this way.
In 1995, the Dow Corning Corporation (one of the world’s leading suppliers of silicones and silicones solutions, products, technology and services) set up the “Dow Corning Trust” – which was designed to process and pay-out on breast implant and other silicone-gel related claims. The filing date deadline for “disease claims” is June 3, 2019. These claims must necessarily involve implants manufactured by Dow Corning.

There are two options for making a disease claim under the Dow Corning Trust. The first option requires proof of a disability that is related somehow to your disease or condition. This can include Atypical Connective Tissue Disease (ACTD) or Atypical Neurological Disease Syndrome (ANDS). Awards for this option can be from $10,000 to $50,000.
Symptoms for this first option can include arthralgia, myalgia, chronic fatigue, lymphadenopathy, neurological symptoms, cognitive dysfunction, paresthesia, photosensitivity, sicca symptoms, dysphasia, alopecia, balance disturbances, sleep disturbances, bruisability, bleeding disorders, cystitis, bladder irritability, colitis, bowel irritability, fever, night sweats, and mucosal ulcers. They may also include burning pains in the chest, breast, arms or axilla. Finally, they may include substantial loss of function in the breast caused by disfigurement or other complications from implants. This Broward County Silicone Breast Implant Attorney helps women who have sustained all sorts of injuries and conditions due to breast implants.
The second option can be more difficult to prove. It requires a physical examination and testing of symptoms from a board certified doctor. The second option can include General Connective Tissue Disease (GCTS), Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), Sclerosis/Systemic Scleroderma (SS), and Polymyositis (PM)/Dermatomyositis (DM). Awards for this option can be from $90,000 to $300,000.Compassion is the Hallmark of this Fort Lauderdale Silicone Breast Implant Attorney
The Dow Corning Trust offers a “Compensation Grid” to help determine an individual woman’s compensation. The grid gives different levels of compensation based on the level of disability of the injured woman. There is a grid for the first option above.
It can be fairly challenging to determine where you fit on the grid. You will also obviously want to try to maximize the amount of compensation you receive per the grid. This Broward County Silicone Breast Implant Lawyer can help you to do this.
There is also a grid for the second option above. The grid for the second option gives different levels of compensation for scleroderma, lupus, polymyositis, dermatomyositis, and general connective tissue symptoms (GCTS).Call 786-294-7711 to Speak to this Broward County Silicone Breast Implant Law Firm
