Faulty Breast PIP Implants
A French Court has found that the certification body TUV Rheinland is responsible in a Court case taken by women affected by the PIP faulty breast implant scandal.
Of all the Solicitors in Ireland acting for women treated with PIP Implants, James McSweeney is the only Solicitor who has sued TUV Rheinland.
“The French case is a class action”, explains Mr McSweeney. The French Court has awarded interim damages but TUV Rheinland has indicated that it is going to appeal.
A further case is pending in the French courts from amongst other places, Britain.
“Anyone who would like to be represented in the French action should immediately contact their Solicitor”, said McSweeney.
It is not clear if taking a case in France would have any effect on an Irish case. What is clear is that the French case has been successful.
