Compensation for faulty testicular implants
Although the news has recently been flooded with the medical dangers of PIP implants, it is not just breast implants that have suffered from this industrial-grade silicon material. In many cases, this PIP material has also been used in testicular implants, leading to a range of faulty implant procedures and potential dangers to anyone who has recently undergone this procedure.
Faulty testicular implants can be particularly dangerous, mainly because this area of the body is located next to some of the body’s most important functions, especially that of creating children and in some cases, faulty testicular implants can lead to infertility. If you have suffered from a faulty testicular implant, then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation.
WHO COULD I CONSIDER CLAIMING COMPENSATION AGAINST?
If you are looking to make a compensation claim in this instant then there are a number of people who you could consider claiming against. If the implant problem has occurred as a result of surgery then you could claim against your operating surgeon if you feel that their negligence has directly led to your implant failure. You may also be eligible to claim directly against the implant manufacturer if you can prove that they were careless in their creation of the implant – in the PIP situation for example.
WHAT ARE SOME HEALTH PROBLEMS THAT CAN OCCUR?
If you are the victim of faulty testicular implants then there are a number of potential health situations that you could find yourself in and these include:
- Damage to surrounding tissue from implant leakage
- Potential development of testicular cancer
- Damage to the testicle area
- Potential infertility
- Severe scarring and damage to the surrounding area.
