Despite the widespread popularity of the Paragard IUD, the side effects of this product are still largely unknown. The FDA’s Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) tracks thousands of reported problems. Spotlight on America’s investigation found that some women suffered complication after the device was implanted.
Paragard is a non-hormonal IUD that helps prevent pregnancy. It works by inhibiting sperm motility and preventing them from fertilizing eggs. Some women who have had Paragard removed claim that the manufacturer failed to warn them about the risks and complications that can occur when the device is removed. The manufacturer, Teva Pharmaceuticals, is being sued by women who were injured when their Paragard device broke during the removal process.
Several lawsuits alleging similar problems have been filed against Teva Pharmaceuticals. In one case, a woman named Stephanie Ideus needed surgery to remove a broken piece of the IUD. In another, a woman named Heather Brown filed a lawsuit against Teva Pharmaceuticals USA.
A lawsuit against Teva Pharmaceuticals is pending in a federal court in Missouri. The plaintiffs allege that the device caused them pain and infections. In some cases, the pieces of the Paragard broke off during the removal and lodged inside their uterus, causing severe pain. The plaintiffs also allege that they had to undergo unnecessary procedures to repair the broken pieces.
A lawsuit filed against Cooper Surgical and Teva Pharmaceutical alleges that the Paragard IUD caused a variety of side effects and fractures during its removal. While the lawsuit does not name specific plaintiffs, the plaintiffs’ attorneys have argued that the claims are too vague to establish liability and therefore should not proceed. Judge May has dismissed the defendants’ argument.
In addition to the potential damage caused by Paragard, the lawsuit claims that Teva Pharmaceuticals failed to warn consumers of the risks associated with the device. The company also failed to warn patients of the risks of breakage and failed to adequately mitigate them. As a result, it is facing an increasing number of lawsuits over faulty products.
Moreover, a claim filed by Georgia Bowers against Teva and Cooper Surgical claimed that a physician incorrectly placed the IUD. Upon removal as per the physician’s instructions, the device broke. The plaintiff’s physician attempted to remove the broken piece with a colposcopy.
Georgia Bowers is one of the victims of the Paragard IUD, and filed a Paragard IUD Removal Side Effects Lawsuit against the manufacturer Teva. She received the IUD in January 2017, but it was not correctly positioned and broke during the procedure. The doctor was unable to remove the broken pieces during a colposcopy, and she had to undergo a painful and invasive procedure to remove it.
Several lawsuits have been filed against Teva Pharmaceuticals over the Paragard device. They claim that Teva was negligent in providing women with information about the risk of injury from Paragard. They also claim that the advertising for the device was false and misleading, presenting the device as safe and effective when in fact it was not. This lawsuit consists of dozens of claims. Currently, the case is awaiting trial in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.
The lawsuits allege that the Paragard IUD has caused injuries to thousands of women. The manufacturers have failed to recall the product, and the injuries have continued to mount. Without a voluntarily recall and adequate warnings, more injuries are likely to occur and more lawsuits will be filed. This is called a “mass tort” issue. The lawyers involved in the lawsuit will continue to work until the product is removed from the market.
The Paragard IUD is a contraceptive device that failed to prevent pelvic infections. The manufacturer, Tevo, failed to include important information about the risks associated with the device in its package insert. As a result, the device caused pelvic infections and was pulled from store shelves. The resulting lawsuits resulted in 200,000 settlements and a $3 billion victim trust fund.
As with any lawsuit, there are several steps to the litigation process. First, the plaintiff files a complaint. This complaint identifies the specific injuries suffered from the faulty product. Then, the plaintiff identifies the wrongful act committed by the defendant. The lawsuit also alleges that the defendants should have known of the risks or avoided them.
The Paragard lawsuits have slowed, but attorneys are still receiving calls from women who experienced the breakage of their IUD during removal. This is partly due to a decrease in the number of new lawsuits – only two cases were filed in April. This could be because the lion’s share of injury victims has already contacted an attorney.
