Rice Harbut Elliott LLP has commenced proceedings in the Supreme Court of British Columbia against Mentor Worldwide LLC and Johnson & Johnson in a proposed class action lawsuit on behalf of Canadian women who have been affected by Mentor breast implants of the silicone cohesive gel type.
Our firm is seeking compensation for women who underwent implant surgery with Mentor 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. A claim is also being advanced to compensate British Columbian women pursuant to B.C. consumer protection legislation for claims relating to Mentor’s alleged failure to disclose health risks associated with their breast implants.
Please note: At present we have not commenced any proceedings for implants of the Mentor saline type or any other brand of implants including those sold and marketed by Ideal Implant Inc.
If you have implants of the Mentor saline type and are suffering from symptoms of Breast Implant Illness, you should seek other legal representation as we have no intention of starting proceedings relating to saline breast implants.
