The Dow Corning Breast Implant Saga Continues

The Law Offices of Robert Fenstersheib and Sheryl Berkowitz  continue to  review claims for the Dow Corning Breast Implant Class Action. It is 2014 and we still continue to hear from women  who need help, support and assistance with  their claims for compensation. We  have spoken to 100’s of women. We understand what you have been thru. Believe it or not, it is over  14 years since the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) demanded that the manufacturers of silicone gel-filled breast implants  submit evidence of their safety and effectiveness of their devices  in order for these breast implants to remain on the market. In April 1992 the FDA decided that the data that had been submitted was not enough nor sufficient and declined the  approval.

The Silicone Gel Breast Implant  Lawsuits Began

Lawsuits were filed by  thousands of women against the  various manufacturers of silicone breast implants. Silicone-gel filled breast implants were first introduced  in the early 1960’s.  This was the  small-breasted woman’s answer. Women could be transformed from a  size AA cup to a voluptuous DD.

The Breast Implant  Promise Turned To  Nightmare

We are helping women in Baltimore with The Dow Corning Trust Breast Implant Class Action. In June Of  1988 Six years after a 1982 proposal, FDA classifies the implants into Class III. Premarket Approval Applications from silicone breast implant manufacturers were due by July 1991. The PMA’s were advised they must  prove affirmatively, with valid scientific data evaluated by the FDA, that their devices are safe and effective. After the PMA’s are submitted by the manufacturers, the FDA would have  180 days to evaluate the safety data. It is now known that silicone breast implants can cause autoimmune symptoms diseases  and other illnesses.  Silicone is  a biologically active and toxic substance and not the  non toxic product that the Dow Chemical Company  claimed it to be. Silicone breast implants can have a significant effect on the autoimmune system of women recipients.

Women were getting autoimmune diseases and these diseases result in the body attacking  itself by targeting the woman’s own tissue and  organs. The silicone leaked  into their  body and  the immune system was unable to rid itself of the alien substance. Diseases included: siliconosis, undifferentiated or atypical connective tissue disease, silicone related disease, silicone reactive disorder, silicone disease syndrome, and silicone implant disease (SID). The result was  cognitive dysfunction, short-term memory loss, Sjgren’s syndrome (dryness in glands, such as the mouth, kidneys, eyes, and lungs), scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis, dermatomyositis, severe joint and muscle pain, incapacitating fatigue, swollen lymph glands, skin problems, peripheral numbness, multiple allergies, headaches, hair loss, sunlight sensitivity, central nervous system disorders (similar to multiple sclerosis), etc.
