Our Law Firm represents women across the United States who had at least one Dow Corning breast implant or tissue expander placed in their bodies before June 1, 1993. Implant brands include Dow Corning, Silastic II, Cronin, DCW, MSI, Mueller 5 and Varifil. For those women that do have qualifing implants, there is still compensation available under the Dow Settlement until June 1, 2019.
For over 17 years, our law firm has successfully represented thousands of breast implant claimants in both the Dow Corning Settlement and prior MDL 926 Revised Settlement Programs.
As a client, you can be sure that we will fight hard to get your the compensation that you rightfully deserve so you can focus on what is most important, your health. We welcome the opportunity to see your claim through so that you receive the maximum recovery.
The Finance Committee will meet to re-consider whether it can recommend to the District Court that Premium Payments be made. A decision from the Committee may come in June 2011.
Premium Payments in the Dow Settlement include a possible additional payment on approved Disease claims, possible increased severity payments (for those with approved Disease claims whose symptoms or disease have worsened), and a possible additional payment on approved Rupture claims. The SF-DCT reports that Premium Payments may be made after the District Court determines that all Base Payments (Disease Claims and Rupture Claims) and higher prior payments have been or can be paid or adequate provision has been made to assure these payments. The SF-DCT states that they cannot determine when Premium Payments will be paid.

The Settlement Facility Dow Corning Trust has recently decided to send Expedited Release Payments ($2,000) to all claimants whose cases are idle.
The Dow Settlement criteria states that if you accept this payment you can NEVER apply for a disease claim in the future, even if you become sick.
If you receive one of these checks in the mail, please do not cash it until you speak with an attorney to discuss your potential claim.
Again, if you cash this check you have effectively settled your claim and can never get any additional money.
