Cancer linked to breast implants leads to deaths

Wrongful death is a difficult topic. In addition to the pain and suffering of losing a loved one, it can be difficult to prove a wrongful death. Occasionally, we see stories that are worth following because of the potential for legal action. There won't always be a case when someone passes away wrongfully, but there are plenty of examples out there where death occurs, and those affected may want to look into working with an attorney to explore their legal options.

Today, we have an example of one of these situations.

The New York Times reports that several women have died from a rare type of cancer linked to breast implants. It's a story some health professionals have been tracking for several years, with stories in the Times dating back to 2011 referencing the cancer. Nine women have now died, and 359 cases of the cancer have been reported by the FDA.

It is important to note that there have been no wrongful death lawsuits filed in this case, and we don't know all the specifics. However, it is an example of an interesting story worth monitoring.

With any wrongful death, the burden of proof is high. This is especially true for medical procedures, as there are laws that protect medical professionals. However, any time someone dies in an unexpected way, there may be grounds for a lawsuit.

Not every death will lead to legal action, but if you think you have a case you should at least consider exploring your options.
