Partner Greg Bentley interviewed by the Today Show’s online platform regarding Allergan Breast Implant recall
On October 30, 2019, representatives from the Today Show’s online platform interviewed Bentley & More LLP partner Greg Bentley about the firm’s litigation against Allergan for its role in exposing hundreds of thousands of women to a potentially fatal form of cancer. That exposure came through the company’s defective—and now recalled by the FDA worldwide—textured breast implants.
The story concerns the courageous Bentley & More LLP client who underwent a double mastectomy, was treated with Allergan implants, only to later shockingly find out that the Allergan textured implants have now exposed her to Breast Implant Associated – Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). That disease is a type of non-Hodgkins lymphoma, meaning a cancer of the immune system, and not a type of breast cancer. Allergan’s defective products have similarly exposed hundreds of thousands of women around the world to this new, potentially fatal risk.
Bentley & More’s client, like the hundreds of thousands of women exposed world-wide, would like the defective implants removed. Yet Allergan refuses to pay for the medical, surgical, or doctor fees to perform the procedure.
The segment will air in December.
This past Saturday, Bentley & More team members had an opportunity to help the Together We Rise organization in their “Socktober” fundraiser.
