Essure Injury and Lawsuits

Are You Suffering Because of Essure?

Our law firm is accepting clients who received the Essure Birth Control device and suffered injuries such as organ damage, revision surgery, and chronic pain.

Essure is a permanent contraceptive that consists of two metal coils that doctors place inside the fallopian tubes. Conception is prevented by scar tissue that develops in the tube. Women who had the device inserted have complained of not only its failure in preventing pregnancy but also of injuries caused during the insertion and later on.

Essure lawsuit claims the birth control device is defectively designed so that it can fracture and move within a woman’s body. This failure can cause a woman’s uterus and fallopian tubes to become punctured.

The Essure Permanent Birth Control System was given approval by the FDA in 2002.

Women who have used it have complained of intense fatigue, pelvic pain, heavy bleeding, depression, headaches, and migration of the device to the pelvic cavity. Users have had to undergo hysterectomy to remove these metal tubes.

While it is still not known what causes the device to fail, the FDA has received more than 5,000 complaints about adverse effects after having the device inserted. Probable causes of failure could include a manufacturing defect in the devices and the use of nickel and other metals that are rejected by the body and lead to allergic reactions.

Essure lawsuits against Bayer typically contend that doctors did not take the health issues arising from using this contraceptive seriously. Also, women claim that Bayer did not do enough to warn them about the potentially harmful side effects of Essure. Many victims of Essure are pursuing legal action not just for compensation but also to ensure that other women do not suffer like them.

If you or a loved one has suffered because of Essure, you should consider taking legal action by contacting the team of experienced attorneys at our law office. Bayer is facing lawsuits for having created a faulty product, negligence, not doing its duty to warn users about health issues, fraud, and breaching product warranties.  Alex R.
