Complete the Form to Be Matched with an Essure Lawyer
In 2016, after multiple reports of serious injuries, the FDA issued a “black box warning” for Essure requiring that warnings about its potential harm be included on all instructions and that doctors provide patients using Essure with an informational checklist. By the end of 2017, many other non-US countries had discontinued the use of Essure, and the US promised it would discontinue its use of the drug by the end of 2018. So why all the fuss? For one thing, over 750,000 units of Essure have been sold, and many of those sales have led to serious injury of the patient using it. Secondly, allegations have been made that Bayer lied to the FDA and to the public and continued forward with production even though they knew the potential for serious injury or illness. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with an illness or suffered serious side effects after using Essure, it’s important to contact an attorney right away.
3. Did you miss more than a few hours or a day of work because of the injury? If you did, then an attorney should review your case.
The range of illnesses and injuries associated with Essure is troublesome and disturbing. Patients have suffered everything from migraines and autoimmune conditions to perforation of the fallopian tubes and uterus to instances where the device actually migrated within the body. Other instances of dizziness, fatigue, internal bleeding, hair loss, and miscarriages after unexpected pregnancies have also been reported. Severe pelvic cramping, nausea and vomiting, and even death have also occurred. If you or a loved one have experienced these or similar symptoms after using Essure, it’s important to consult with an attorney to discuss your legal options. You deserve to be compensated for your pain.
Eligibility for compensation depends on a wide range of factors, but regardless of whether or not you think you qualify, you should contact an attorney to find out. In many cases similar to this one, patients who were diagnosed up to 10 years ago could still obtain compensation. Don’t assume that you won’t qualify. Call an attorney to discuss your options today.
There isn’t a prescribed amount of time that you’d had to have used Essure in order to be entitled to compensation. Again, eligibility is determined by a wide range of factors, so it’s in your best interest to call an attorney and discuss your case today. Many people have experienced these harsh side effects and injuries after using the Essure for only a short period of time, so be sure to call an attorney and find out if you have a case.
Even if you can’t afford an attorney, you can get a consultation for free. Most attorneys will be happy to hear the details of your case and tell you whether or not they think they can obtain compensation on your behalf. Additionally, many attorneys work on a contingency system, which means you don’t pay them a dime unless they win your case. At that point, you’d pay a percentage of your compensation. The consultation is free, so it doesn’t hurt to call and find out if you have a case. You have a right to be compensated for your pain and injury, so contact an attorney to find out what they can do for you.
