Yes. If you have had PiP implants our advice is to seek assistance from a medical professional as soon as possible.
Scans are essential – for example, our client Jenny Brown didn’t know that her implants had ruptured, but a scan showed that her PiP implant on her right side had burst, leaking silicone into her body. She’s recently had an operation to remove the implants. Find out more about Jenny’s story here - SCOTTISH PiP VICTIM TELLS OF RUPTURE “NIGHTMARE”.
If you are a victim of the PiP implants scandal, you have the legal right to make a no win no fee compensation claim to cover the costs of any scans, removal and replacement of the implant, and also the pain and suffering you have been through.
If you received your implant through the NHS you should contact your GP to arrange your scan. If you received your implant through a private clinic, you will need to contact them to make the arrangements.
However, different clinics take different approaches as to what they will offer in terms of scans and how much they will cost – and these offers change all the time.
We are working with the Scottish victims of the PiP scandal to ensure that you are all given the treatment and compensation you deserve, so if you would like some advice on how best to arrange your scan or deal with the clinics, just give us a call on 0800 0891 331.
