Man files lawsuit over wife’s drug injury death
April 3, 2008
A man is suing a birth control company for the death of his wife after she suffered drug injuries, including a blood clot, following the use of NuvaRing, WCBS reported.
The young woman and drug injury victim died suddenly in the night when a blood clot that traveled through her pelvic region spread to her lungs.
The drug injury victim had been using NuvaRing for six months prior to her death.
The woman’s mother said her daughter reported aching symptoms in the day prior to her drug injury, but she suffered no other symptoms.
The company who owns NuvaRing says that blood clots are a risk of all combined hormonal contraceptives.
Dozens of other lawsuits have been filed because of possible drug injuries with NuvaRing since 2001.
NuvaRing could cause Texas drug injuries.
