Advocating for Victims in Pennsylvania
Medical advancements in recent decades have given rise to new forms of birth control that last longer and are more reliable than the daily pill. IUDs, or intrauterine devices, are some of these. Paragard is Teva Pharmaceuticals’ copper-based IUD, and it has recently been linked to a number of complications in it users.
Paragard is not the only IUD that has shown to be problematic (Mirena IUD has also caused injuries in a number of women), but because the implant is approved to stay in the body for up to 10 years, it’s prone to migration and complications during the removal. If you or a loved one has experienced injuries related to a migration, call our Pennsylvania defective medical device attorneys for the representation you deserve.
Complications & Potential Compensation Surrounding Paragard
The majority of concerns with the Paragard IUD are related to migration, movement inside the uterus or even to other parts of the body. Movement inside the uterus could mean vaginal bleeding and diminished productivity of the device, leading to a number of different and problematic cases of pregnancy.
If the device moves to other parts of the body, it could require surgery to remove the device. Each of these cases would be preventable had the device worked in the manner presented by its manufacturers.
If you’ve been injured by this device, your compensation could include the following:
- Medical expenses
- Mental anguish
- Pain and suffering
- Disability and physical impairment
- Loss of capacity for enjoyment of life
- Punitive damages against the manufacturer
