Paragard IUD Lawsuit Attorneys in New Hampshire

Were You Injured by a Copper IUD? Call (888) 801-9916!

Birth control should not result in injury.

Hormonal birth control may be highly effective, but the side effects can wreak havoc on a person’s life and compel them to seek hormone-free methods instead. Enter the Paragard copper intrauterine device (IUD): the most effective non-hormonal birth control available, with an efficacy of more than 99% that lasts for up to 10 years. Paragard almost seems too good to be true—for many, it is.

Thousands of patients who got Paragard IUDs found themselves severely injured after the device migrated, fell out, or pierced the uterus or other organs. Yet Paragard remains on the market, readily available without any mention of these potential health concerns.

If you have suffered a Paragard IUD injury, Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. wants to fight to secure you compensation and justice. No form of birth control should put your health in danger. We will work tirelessly to hold Paragard’s manufacturer, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., accountable for putting millions of Americans in harm’s way.

Contact a New Hampshire lawyer online to discuss whether a Paragard lawsuit is right for you. Your consultation is free!

About Paragard Lawsuits

One of the most common topics to come up when discussing a Paragard IUD is the removal of the device. Having any IUD removed is known to be a painful experience; what is not so well known is that the Paragard IUD may break upon removal, leading to severe injuries. That’s because the box does not mention it.

Therefore, the current lawsuits against Teva allege that:

  • Paragard has manufacturing and design defects that leave it liable to break;
  • Teva failed to warn patients and doctors of the risk of IUD breakage and its associated health complications; and
  • Teva was negligent in putting a defective IUD to market.

Common Paragard IUD Injuries

The most frequently reported Paragard injuries include:

  • IUD migration
  • Infertility
  • Pain
  • Infection
  • Inflammation and allergies
  • Perforation of the uterus, cervix or other organs
  • Broken IUD pieces that cannot be removed or require surgery to remove

Some people have reported that their Paragard injury required various surgeries, such as a hysterectomy, laparotomy or laparoscopy.

Paragard IUD Lawsuit Settlement Amounts

Since Paragard litigation is still in the early stages, there have yet to be any settlements or verdicts. But per law, victims of negligence are eligible to be compensated for the full amount of their damages. Thus, a successful Paragard lawsuit could result in compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, etc.

Paragard lawsuits have been consolidated into an MDL (multidistrict litigation) in Georgia, but not yet in New Hampshire. There is no Paragard IUD class action suit as of now.
