If you are interested in filing a ParaGard IUD removal side effects lawsuit, there are several possible legal grounds. These include Design defect, failure to warn about risks, and perforation of the uterus. In addition to these grounds, you may be able to file a class action lawsuit.
Class action lawsuits
In the recent past, several lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturers of ParaGard IUDs. According to the lawsuits, Paragard IUDs are defectively designed and manufactured. As a result, women have experienced various side effects after receiving the implant. Although there are many cases involving Paragard IUDs, the lawsuits do not involve all women who received the implant.
ParaGard IUD lawsuits generally involve a discovery process. During this process, plaintiffs introduce evidence to support their claims. If no settlement is reached, the cases go to trial. The discovery process is overseen by a MDL, and is designed to determine whether the Paragard IUD was designed with design flaws and whether the defendants were negligent in warning patients of possible complications.
Plaintiffs claiming the ParaGard IUD has caused them to suffer side effects are entitled to compensation from the manufacturer of the device. These lawsuits allege a design defect in the device, which can cause it to fracture inside the body and lead to serious medical complications. They further allege that the manufacturer did not warn consumers adequately about potential side effects. In addition, the manufacturer has been accused of deceptive advertising regarding the ParaGard IUD.
If you believe that you have experienced a side effect of the Paragard IUD, it is important to schedule an appointment with a doctor to determine the severity of your symptoms. You should avoid shifting or removing the device as this could cause further complications. In some instances, your doctor may need to perform a complete hysterectomy to remove the IUD. Your doctor will also be able to ask you questions about the type of damage you experienced, which could help your case.
Failure to warn of risks
Paragard is a contraceptive device that is designed to help women achieve and maintain a regular menstrual cycle. However, there are many health risks associated with it. Some of these risks are not always apparent and may cause complications. One such risk is copper toxicity, which is often associated with copper based contraceptives. This complication can cause a range of neurological, psychological, and hepatic symptoms, including vomiting, muscle stiffness, abdominal fluid, and yellowish skin. A woman may also experience psychosis or develop schizophrenia. In order to pursue a successful lawsuit, attorneys must prove the manufacturing defect, design defect, or failure to warn of the risks associated with Paragard IUD removal.
If you are experiencing one or more of these symptoms, it is important to seek medical treatment immediately. An IUD is only effective for one month and should not be left in for more than three months. If it is left in too long, it can fracture, leading to life-threatening bleeding and other complications. In some cases, the device may even require surgical removal.
Perforation of uterus
A 49-year-old woman presented to an outpatient clinic with complaints of abdominal pain and nausea. She explained that she had been implanted with an IUD for birth control four years ago. She had tried to remove it in an external center, but had been unsuccessful. She also had menstrual spotting and abdominal tenderness. Abdominal ultrasonography showed endometrioma within the IUD cavity.
Despite being rare, perforation of the uterus after ParaGard IUD insertion is a potentially life-changing complication. In most cases, surgical treatment is necessary to repair the damage to the uterus. Delay in the procedure can result in several complications, including scarring of the uterus, organ perforation, hemorrhage, infection, sepsis, infertility, and miscarriage.
There are many women who have suffered adverse side effects of Paragard IUD removal. The lawsuit alleges that the device causes injuries because of breakage during removal. The defendants are Teva Pharmaceutical and CooperSurgical. The lawsuit has been filed in federal court in the Northern District of Georgia.
In the lawsuit, the woman Georgia Bowers alleges that she suffered complications after removing her Paragard IUD. She says that the copper-wrapped arms were supposed to fold up during removal, but this did not occur. Instead, she had to apply additional force to get the device out.
Although the number of new Paragard lawsuits is growing slowly, the number of cases filed in the MDL has been increasing. There are currently almost 900 Paragard lawsuits pending in the MDL. In March, Judge Leigh Martin May is scheduled to hold a status conference to provide updates on pending Paragard IUD lawsuits. At that meeting, the judge is expected to issue a timeline for the case.
