PARAGARD IUD LAWSUITS

PARAGARD REMOVAL INJURIES

PARAGARD LAWSUIT

Paragard is an intrauterine device (IUD), initially manufactured by Teva Pharmaceuticals. Now, Paragard is manufactured by Cooper Surgical. Approved by the FDA in 1984, it is used as a long-term birth control device: according to Cooper Surgical, it provides “up to 10 years of Pregnancy Prevention”.

Paragard is a flexible T-shaped IUD that uses “just 1 simple active ingredient–copper–instead of artificial hormones.” Complications in Paragard removals are now being reported after as little as 1 year after the device is inserted in the uterus. In 2015, the Open Journal of Clinical & Medical Case Reports published a study that found 7 issues related to Paragard’s T arm breaking. The complications required a hysteroscopic removal; in the case of one of the participants of the study, it was not possible to remove the T arm.

FAQ

Yes. Please use our contact form to request a free case evaluation. Tell us your story, and one of our lawyers will respond to tell you if we think we can help.

We work almost all of our cases under contingent fee arrangements. If we take your case under a contingent fee arrangement, you won’t owe our firm any legal fees unless we are able to recover money for you.

Our contingent fee is either based on a percentage of the amount we recover for our client (which generally ranges from one-third of the recovery up to 40%) or the amount of work we perform on your case, multiplied by our current hourly rates. The percentage we will charge in your case depends on the type of case, when your case resolves, and whether you request us to advance litigation costs (including filing fees, postage, expert witness fees, etc.). Generally, the percentage is higher if we are advancing litigation costs and your case does not resolve early.

In most litigation matters, it is extremely difficult – practically impossible – to predict how long or how many hours will it take to resolve a particular case. Every case is different in terms of the complexity. For instance, a simple breach of contract matter is likely to get resolved significantly faster than a complicated lawsuit involving multiple parties, numerous claims, complex issues of law, and extensive discovery. The other parties’ cooperation, the attorneys’ schedules, as well as the number of other cases on the court’s docket are also the factors.
