The FDA has not pulled the Paragard IUD off the market, despite the numerous reports of serious complications associated with the device. The reason for this failure to take action is that the manufacturer of the IUD does not warn the public about the possible risks of the device, and the FDA has not acted to stop this trend. As a result, the number of women seeking ParaGard IUD Removal Side Effects Lawsuit has grown dramatically.
Damages Caused By Their Product
It is important to understand that the Paragard IUD is made of a synthetic plastic material and therefore breaks during the removal process. This plastic device can break and become lodged within the body, resulting in serious medical complications and even a full hysterectomy. The FDA has received more than 1600 reports of broken IUDs since 2010, and many of them were considered serious. The risks associated with this medical device are far too great to ignore. If you have had to undergo surgery because of broken Paragard IUD fragments, you may have the right to pursue a lawsuit.
The lawsuits filed against Teva Pharmaceuticals have claimed that the Paragard IUD was defective and dangerous. Its side effects may result in pelvic infections, and the Paragard IUD is no exception. Although Teva Pharmaceuticals has denied that its product caused any problems, the lawsuit has gathered more than 200,000 settlements and $3 billion in compensation. As a result, Teva Pharmaceuticals is liable for the damages caused by their product.
