Class Members: Collectively the class has been defined as “All persons residing in Canada who were implanted with breast implants manufactured and distributed by Allergan plc and several of its affiliates”.

This proposed class action arises from Allergan’s alleged failure to disclose health risks associated with their breast implants, sold in Canada, including in British Columbia. Class action lawsuits were commenced in British Columbia, Ontario, and Quebec, collectively the National Allergan Class Actions.

Health Canada has recently suspended Allergan’s license for its Biocell breast implants. The full details of the Health Canada recall can be found here.

Our firm is seeking compensation for persons who underwent implant surgery with Allergan breast implants without being provided with full and adequate disclosure of the risks associated with the implants, including the risk of Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (“BIA-ALCL”) and for related financial losses associated with these health issues.

Consortium including RHE Lawyers obtain certification of issues relating to Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma and Allergan breast implants

On March 23, 2022, Justice Morgan of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice granted certification of common issues relating to the propensity of Allergan Biocell® implants to cause Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (“ALCL”).  This means that the issues relating to ALCL are authorized to proceed to a common issues trial.  The reasons for judgment of Justice Morgan and the entered order for certification can be found here.

The Plaintiffs also intend to seek certification of additional issues relating to all silicone breast implants manufactured and sold in Canada by Allergan since 1999, due to their propensity to cause autoimmune disease (sometimes termed “ASIA” or “BII”) and premature rupture.  The certification hearing of those issues will proceed in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice on September 28-30, 2022.

If you have developed ALCL due to your Allergan breast implants, we encourage you to contact Ying Lee, Senior Paralegal, at ylee@rhelaw.com .  We will provide updates on our website as the matter progresses and will also be offering a town hall Q&A meeting for class members in advance of the continuation of the certification hearing in September to provide further information.
