Millions of women have used vaginal ring contraceptives like NuvaRing as a convenient method of birth control, thinking they were safer than traditional pills. However, several studies in the past year have linked these devices to dangerous blood clot side effects.
If you are among the many who suffered a blood clot, stroke, DVT or pulmonary embolism after using a NuvaRing, you may be entitled to substantial compensation for your injuries through a NuvaRing lawsuit.
Lawyers are currently helping those affected file claims to recover for their damages. However, you only have a limited amount of time to take legal action.
NuvaRing was designed to prevent pregnancy using lower doses of hormones. The makers of the device actually promoted it as a safer alternative to the pill. However, since the chemicals are directly absorbed into the bloodstream on a constant basis, women receive higher overall doses and may face serious health risks.
A lawyer can explain how those affected can seek damages through a NuvaRing lawsuit since the manufacturer failed to test for the affects of bloodstream absorption and did not adequately warn patients of the risks.
If you suffered a blood clot, DVT, stroke or pulmonary embolism after using a NuvaRing, you may be entitled to substantial compensation through a NuvaRing lawsuit. Contact us today to speak with a lawyer about your legal options.
The FDA has already received over 1,000 reports of patients suffering blood clot injuries or death after using NuvaRings. Last year, they issued a warning following a study which showed vaginal ring contraceptives could increase the risks of blood clots by as much as 56% over traditional birth control pills.
So far in 2012, both the New England Journal of Medicine and British Medical Journal have published studies showing vaginal rings like NuvaRing can increase the risk of blood clots by as much as 90% over oral contraceptives. In those not previously using a hormone birth control, the risk can increase by as much as 650%!
Nearly 1,000 women have filed a NuvaRing lawsuit so far for blood clot injuries suffered after using these devices. Experts believe as many as 10,000 women may be affected. Due to the volume of claims expected, a special federal Multi District Litigation court was set up to handle the cases.
