Defective Paragard IUD Attorneys
For more than three decades, the Paragard intrauterine device (IUD) has been marketed as a hormone-free, 99% effective, reversible birth control device.
Sadly, for some women who chose the Paragard IUD as their birth control method of choice, the promises of this device are being overshadowed by complications, including:
- Unplanned pregnancy
- Pelvic inflammatory disease
- Device migration
- Increased bleeding during periods
- Longer, more painful periods
If you’ve suffered complications related to the Paragard IUD and are now considering your legal options, the medical device attorneys at Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough want to speak to you. We are accepting inquiries about these potentially dangerous devices, and we want to fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
Why File a Paragard IUD Lawsuit?
When a medical device causes you harm, you have the right to demand compensation from the device’s manufacturer. IUD-related complications could lead to several challenges for users, including:
- Costly medical bills
- Ongoing care
- Lost income
- Emotional pain and suffering
If the Paragard IUD has caused you expensive, painful, and traumatic injuries, you should explore your legal options. When you file a product liability claim, you can demand payment for past, ongoing, and future expenses.
How the Paragard IUD Is Intended to Work
The Paragard IUD works by slowly releasing copper into the lining of the uterus, prompting an inflammatory response that kills sperm. It’s different from other IUDs because it relies on copper as the active ingredient as opposed to hormones. The device is supposed to provide pregnancy protection for up to 10 years.
The Potential Dangers of the Paragard IUD
Some of the most common dangers of the device stem from removal attempts. Removal of the device can be difficult. In some cases, the uterus can be punctured or scarred.
In other cases, the device might fail to perform as intended or be expelled, which could lead to unplanned pregnancies. Complications linked to Paragard IUD might also cause infertility in users.
Any of these complications can have dramatic effects on women who believed that they were safe by using this device. If you had a Paragard IUD implanted and you are now suffering any of these complications, contact Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough to schedule your free consultation.
