In 2017, a safety review on implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) found that the rate of BIA-ALCL in Canada is significantly higher in patients with macro-textured breast implants. Allergan recalled Biocell breast implants as a result, but people like you still got hurt.

Get compensation and hold Allergan accountable. Join our class action lawsuit today.

 

FAQ

How do I know if I have Biocell Implants?

Check your medical device card. It will tell you whether it’s an Allergan implant, the type, the device serial number, and the model number. Keep this information handy! 

 

What are the symptoms of BIA-ALCL?

Symptoms include swelling, fluid accumulation in the breast around the implant, lumps, pain, changes in the size of your breasts, or redness. See a doctor right away if you have any of these symptoms. Do not try to self-diagnose. Get a diagnosis from a qualified physician. 

 

How does a class action lawsuit work?

A class action gathers a large group of plaintiffs together to resolve their complaints in a single court case. It is the appropriate type of court case when many people have been hurt and when it’s not necessarily practical for every single one of them to bring an individual personal injury case to court. 

You pay no legal fees. We, the lawyers, take all the risk of paying the expenses for the case. We get a percentage of the settlement when the case is brought to a successful conclusion. The settlement is then divided equally between all the members of the class. 

 

How do I join the class? 

Just call (306) 653-7756 today! Speak to one of our representatives. We’ll ask you a few questions, and then add you to the lawsuit. You won’t have to make time to attend depositions or testify in court. All you have to do is add your name to the lawsuit so that we know you are someone who is entitled to a payment should the case come to a successful conclusion. 

Stand up and be counted: you deserve it! 

 

When and how will I be paid?

It may take 18 to 24 months to either try the case in court or work out a settlement. Either way, you’ll be paid after the case is successfully resolved. You’ll receive a check in the mail.
