Women deserve compensation for complications from Paragard IUD

Due to defects in design, the arms of the T-shaped ParaGard IUD can break off and move inside the uterus causing severe damage to organs and internal tissue. Many victims have experienced device arm breakage during the removal process which creates medical complications and can result in a second, more painful and complicated removal procedure. In the most severe cases, a hysterectomy may be required.

We work to recover money damages for medical bills (including fertility treatments), lost earnings, and pain and suffering.

Wetherall Group is filing lawsuits for Paragard IUD victims that needed surgery following a failed removal of the Paragard T 380A. Examples of these surgeries are a:

  • Hysterectomy,
  • Caesarian section, or
  • Other exploratory surgery

Potential plaintiffs also include people with fractured IUD pieces still inside of them.

The Paragard IUD lawsuit is a claim for financial compensation by women injured by the Paragard T 380A fracturing in their uterine cavity. We contend that Teva Pharmaceuticals created a defective contraceptive device and failed to instruct doctors how to remove (“explant”) the IUD without causing breakage.

This is not a class action. Each of our client’s lawsuits remains separate. But to speed up the settlement process, we anticipate the lawsuits will be joined into a multidistrict litigation (MDL).

The window to file suit is only a year or two in some states. So please consult with an attorney as soon as possible.
