Why You Should Consider a Bia-Alp lawsuit
A BIA-ALCL lawsuit is a legal proceeding wherein a patient who has been diagnosed with cancer, AIDS or any other disease is granted compensation for the loss of his or her life and suffering caused by that disease. In a typical case, a patient is diagnosed with cancer that has spread to the bones, muscles, organs, and other parts of the body. He or she may then be offered compensation for the damages done, which would cover his or her implants as well as other medical expenditures that are attributed to the said disease.
The number of people who are filing BIA-ALCL lawsuits are increasing.
This is due to the fact that more manufacturers are being found liable for the manufacturing defects in their products. In addition to this, with the increase of genetically modified organisms (GMO), the number of lawsuits regarding the effects of such products is also on the rise. This has led to an increase in the number of claims filed by potential plaintiffs.
During the period when the patient was diagnosed with cancer, he or she probably would have undergone several treatments.
Most likely, these treatments would have involved surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and the use of breast implants. The treatment would have been effective if the tumor did not grow anymore, or if the tumor size decreased. In any case, the patient would have experienced the side effects of these treatments, and at times the symptoms might still be present. When a bia-alcl lawsuit is filed, the plaintiff should be able to show that the side effects caused by the disease were actually causing the patient to experience pain and suffering.
One of the reasons why so many patients are filing bia-alcl lawsuit is because they lost wages because of the inability to resume work.
In most instances, the wages lost as a result of not being able to work are covered by workers’ compensation benefits. However, in some states including New York, Illinois and Nevada, compensation for lost wages is not automatically granted.
Another reason why patients are filing class action lawsuits is because they are owed back pay for the services they received from a surgeon who performed a breast implant procedure that was substandard.
Substandard means that it failed to provide results that resulted in a better result than those attained by other surgeons. It also means that the surgeon acted in a reckless and negligent manner. If a court found that a surgeon failed to provide a substandard medical care, then the plaintiff can receive money for emotional pain and suffering and loss of wages. The court may also award punitive damages for cases like those.
The Food and Drug Administration is responsible for ensuring that manufacturers are not liable for injuries caused by their products.
It is against the law for a manufacturer to knowingly sell a product that is unsafe. If a court found that a manufacturer intentionally sells a product that is dangerous, then the plaintiff is entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and past and future medical expenses related to the injury.
These types of lawsuits are increasingly common because of the dangers of defective BIA implants. If you have been injured because of a defective BIA implant, then contact an experienced personal injury attorney.
