The implants which were manufactured by the defendant, was subsequently found to have ruptured at the end of August 2002 and were removed. Considerable trauma was caused.
Lesley required extensive physiotherapy and has experienced distress at residual scarring. She felt unable to have any further breast augmentation procedures.
The expert concluded that both implants ruptured prematurely at the same point of initiation and that the likely cause was a manufacturers defect in both implants.
In view of the litigation risks, the claimant decided to accept the sum of £10,000 plus her reasonable legal costs.
