Did You Have Essure Implants Removed Due To Serious Problems?
Essure devices offer a nonsurgical, nonhormonal, permanent solution to birth control. If it sounds too good to be true, unfortunately, for many women, it is.
Since Essure was approved in 2002, hundreds of women across the nation have filed lawsuits against the manufacturer, Bayer, claiming that the implants caused significant injuries. If you believe that you or a female family member was seriously harmed by this dangerous product, it is in your best interest to consult a product liability lawyer as soon as possible.
At The Mahoney Law Firm, P.C., we have been handling serious cases like these since 1968. Founding attorney Dennis M. Mahoney, M.D., is a licensed obstetrician as well as a legal advocate with more than 40 years of experience. Together, he and his sons provide diligent, effective representation to injured individuals across Colorado and Wyoming.
Essure Is An Extremely Dangerous Product
While many women have tried to use Essure for birth control purposes, in far too many cases, this product has caused horrific damage to their bodies.
In Only Three Years, The FDA Received More Than 5,000 Complaints
From November 2002 to May 2015, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) received more than 5,000 reports of health problems related to Essure devices. In February 2016, the FDA ordered Bayer to include a “black box” warning on the product, explaining that it could potentially cause severe or even debilitating side effects.
These potential side effects may include:
- Autoimmune diseases due to the nickel within the devices, which causes the cells inside the body to attack and destroy healthy cells
- Punctured fallopian tubes or uterus, which can result in loss of reproductive ability and cause serious long-term pain
- Intense pain in the pelvic region
- Ectopic pregnancies, otherwise known as tubal pregnancies, in which the egg is fertilized and grows in the tubes outside of the uterus, which can be deadly to the child and the mother
In some cases, trying to remove a defective Essure implant is just as dangerous. Many women have required multiple surgeries or complete removal of the uterus through a hysterectomy. In turn, hysterectomies come with their own potential side effects, including infection, kidney failure, perforated organs, menopause symptoms and strokes.
If you are like one of the many women who have been serious harmed by Essure, you deserve compensation. But to get that compensation, you need to fight back. At The Mahoney Law Firm, P.C., we will fight for you.
With medical and legal credentials, we understand the science and the legal procedures involved. Our attorneys will go up against Bayer and other major Essure manufacturers to help you get the compensation that you deserve.
