If you or a loved one has suffered severe injuries, including chronic pain, hair loss, tooth loss, severe bleeding, miscarriages, perforation of the uterus or fallopian tubes or even death, as a result of using the Essure birth control implant, then you may have a case for a potential lawsuit. The team at Fears Nachawati is helping those who have suffered health complications as a result of using this contraceptive device in order to receive justice for complications they were never warned about.
Essure is a female sterilization device which was designed as an alternative to tubal ligation, which can be performed in a doctor’s office with less anesthesia, and which requires no major surgery. The device consists of two small coils which are designed to produce an inflammatory response causing scar tissue to form that blocks the fallopian tubes.
Complications from the product have led to more than 27,000 reports to the FDA and nearly 16,000 lawsuits since the product was first released in 2002. In 2016, the United States was the only country where it was still being sold, having already been removed from the market in England, Brazil, France, Canada, and a number of other countries. Bayer recently announced that they would discontinue sales of the Essure birth control implant by the end of 2018. Bayer says that the plan to discontinue sales is not due to health or safety issues, nor the lengthy campaign by health advocates to have it banned by the FDA, but rather due to a decline in use as women choose other birth control options.
While that news may be a welcome victory among those fighting to remove Essure from market, it is also a victory that is too little, too late for the thousands of women who have already suffered as a result of using this product. If you or a loved one has been impacted by this medical device, then you may be able to hold Bayer accountable in the court of law and receive compensation which will help you move forward.
The team of Fears Nachawati and our experienced lawyers are here to help you get through this difficult time and to hold Bayer accountable, because no woman should suffer severe injury or even death as a result of their choice of birth control.
