Credit Card Provider Pays Up for PIP Breast Implants

Article by

It was announced today that a credit card provider, Lloyds TSB, has reimbursed a PIP patient £3,700 for her PIP breast implants.

The President of BAAPS has described this as a "ray of hope" for other PIP patients.

Many women who have PIP breast implants seek a similar remedy. However, for those who have suffered a rupture of their PIP breast implants or other adverse symptoms, this remedy would be insufficient. Where an injury is identifiable in a particular patient, that patient is entitled to all of her financial losses in addition to personal injury compensation. 

Where PIP breast implants were paid for by credit card it may be possible to bring a like claim against the credit provider as the clinic itself.

If you have concerns about your PIP breast implants please contact Kevin Timms or Julie Retallick on 01992 422 128 or email the team at info@gardenhousesolicitors.co.uk
