When you are in a high-impact car accident, the force of the airbag, hitting a hard object like the dash, or even the sudden restraint of the seatbelt can cause breast implants to move or rupture.
If you are in a serious car accident and you have breast implants, you should get them checked out by a doctor, preferably the surgeon who did your augmentation. This is because you may not know the extent of the damage immediately. It’s possible that it will take a few days or weeks to notice a leaking implant, particularly if it has a small puncture. Your doctor can order imaging, like an MRI, to determine whether your breast implants were damaged in the accident.
What Happens if My Breast Implants are Damaged in an Accident
You can be compensated for the cost of your doctor visits, any necessary surgery or imaging, any ongoing mental or physical therapy, or other treatment related to your damaged implants. You can also be compensated for any permanent scarring, including surgery scars or scarring on a tattoo.
Talk to your doctor if you have been injured in an accident and suspect your implants are damaged.
