Again, if you have suffered complications from a Paragard IUD implant, you should contact our Paragard attorneys immediately.
What is Paragard?
Paragard is an intrauterine medical device (or “IUD”). IUDs are widely used as contraceptives. They are marketed as easier to use, extremely effective and more inexpensive than other forms of birth control. Most importantly, IUDs are marketed as being readily removable, if a patient seeks to become pregnant in the future.
Paragard was first approved in 1984 and has been widely produced and sold by Teva pharmaceuticals. Many IUDs work through the use of the type of hormones in birth control pills. Paragard, however, is marketed as using no hormones. Paragard is basically a small plastic device that is covered with copper. The copper causes a chemical reaction in a woman’s body that does not allow for fertilization. Paragard was eventually approved for temporary use, for up to ten years.
Do I Have a Paragard IUD Lawsuit Claim?
If you have had Paragard IUD implanted and have suffered one or more of the following complications, you may be entitled to compensation.
- Paragard IUD Breakage causing injury
- Paragard IUD Migration causing injury
- Inability to Retrieve or Remove Paragard IUD
- Paragard IUD Complications Requiring Surgical Intervention
- Ectopic Pregnancy
Have Paragard IUD Lawsuits Been Filed?
Recent lawsuits and studies claim that Paragard, notably the 380 product models, can cause serious complications and injuries. Specifically, the Paragard IUD can migrate through the body and/or become lodged or embedded in different parts of the body, such as the uterus. Another dangerous defect is that parts of the Paragard IUD allegedly break off and can cause perforation or damage to tissues and vital organs. This can not only make the Paragard IUD irretrievable, it can lead to serious invasive surgeries, including hysterectomy. Paragard is also claimed to be linked to ectopic pregnancies.
