The product liability attorneys at Alexander Shunnarah Personal Injury Attorneys are currently investigating claims involving Essure, a permanent birth control for women marketed by Bayer Healthcare. Essure, approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2002, consists of two small coils that are implanted through the vagina into the fallopian tubes. After Essure is implanted, a barrier of tissue forms around the implant which prevents sperm from reaching eggs.
This device has demonstrated a strong tendency to migrate, which can lead to perforation of the fallopian tube or the uterine wall. Additionally, women have experienced side effects including severe pain and cramping, blood clots, infection, pelvic pain, depression, weight gain, and extreme fatigue. From 2002-2013, the FDA received approximately 988 reports citing adverse events related to Essure.
Our team of product liability attorneys are experienced in successfully representing women nationwide in cases involving dangerous pharmaceuticals and defective medical device injuries, including transvaginal mesh, Yaz, and Mirena.
If you or a loved one has utilized Essure and experienced severe side effects, you may be eligible to file an Essure lawsuit.
