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.
