Essure® Lawsuit Lawyer
Essure® is touted as a permanent birth control device that can stop the possibility of pregnancy without surgery. Approved by the FDA in 2002, thousands of women have undergone this procedure, a type of sterilization. However, in the years since the release of this product, thousands of women have also complained of injuries from the device and some have lost their lives. If you or someone you love has been injured from Essure®, you may be able to pursue a lawsuit to recover financial damages.
Essure® is a device that is placed in the fallopian tubes and encourages the growth of scar tissue around the device. This is designed to create a permanent barrier to stop sperm from reaching eggs for fertilization, stopping the possibility of pregnancy. However, there have been serious and even fatal side effects from this device, including:
- Severe, chronic pelvic pain
- Allergic reactions to the device
- Tears to tissue
- Organ damage
- Life-threatening ectopic pregnancy
- Device moving or coming out
The complications from the Essure® procedure can result in the need for removal of the device, requiring surgery. Between the release of the product through December 31, 2015, almost ten-thousand complaints were issued to the FDA and 11 deaths were reported. Warnings have been issued by the FDA on this product, but for those who have already been injured, the warnings are too late.
