For years, many women have used the birth control device Essure to prevent unwanted pregnancies. Still, studies have shown that it causes various side effects, including itchy skin, feelings of discomfort, bloating, irregular bleeding and periods, dizziness, vomiting and nausea, extreme pain in the pelvic cavity, and cramping.
More severe side effects have been associated with the device, such as dangerous ectopic pregnancies, perforation of the fallopian tubes and uterus, unplanned pregnancies, severe allergic reactions, device migration, and death.
If you or someone you love has suffered injuries from an Essure birth control device, you will need an experienced defective medical device lawyer on your side to help guide you through the litigation process.
Case Update August 2020: Essure manufacturer, Bayer AG, has agreed to pay $1.6 billion to settle 90% of Essure lawsuits filed by women who claim Essure caused them to suffer injuries. The manufacturer is facing around 39,000 Essure lawsuits in the United States as of August 21, 2020.
