Our firm has years of experience getting clients results when they have been harmed by a dangerous medical device. Let us put that experience to work for you.

An estimated 3.8 million women rely on IUD devices to prevent pregnancy. This is about 6.4 percent of all American women between the ages of 15 and 44. The ones who specifically use the ParaGard IUD should be aware of recent reports of injury and what they should do if this happens to them.

What is a ParaGard IUD?

ParaGard is an IUD made from copper. When working properly, it will provide long-term birth control. The ParaGard IUD is T-shaped and is inserted it into the uterus by a physician. The copper in the device purposely creates an inflammatory reaction which prevents pregnancy. It can be used to prevent pregnancy for up to 10 years.

Many women seek the ParaGard IUD because it does not contain hormones and utilizes the properties of copper. Without birth control hormones, women do not have to worry about the common hormonal side effects, such as blood clots.

This does not mean, however, that the ParaGard IUD is always safe. A number of people have faced complications from these devices.

What medical issues have people been facing with the ParaGard IUD?

In some cases, parts of the ParaGard have broken off when removed by the doctor. When this happens, it can cause damage to the uterus. Often, patients require surgery to remove any broken pieces. Sometimes a full hysterectomy is required. These surgeries can cause considerable mental and physical anguish for patients, and the unexpected medical costs can be very burdensome for patients and their families.

Anyone who has encountered issues like this should reach out to Inserra | Kelley | Sewell Injury Attorneys. Our seasoned attorneys have years of experience working with patients injured because of defective medical devices or drugs. IKS believes strongly in helping clients heal, then fighting for our clients to bring those responsible for injury to justice. If this type of injury has occurred to you or someone else you know, reach out and speak to us to learn more about how we can help.

What should someone do if they have been hurt by the ParaGard IUD?

Anyone who has been hurt by ParaGard should speak to an attorney. Injuries like these can be devastating; women can face life-long complications from the injuries caused by ParaGard, including the inability to bear children. Those who have had a hysterectomy will also have to deal with hormonal issues.

When someone designs a medical product, they have an obligation to produce a safe product that will not harm patients. When something has not been designed properly and causes this type of grievous, long-term injury, patients have the right to seek compensation. Anyone who has been injured by a Paragard IUD should seek legal counsel. We can help you determine whether you have a legal case and what you can expect from the process. Patients who have been injured by the ParaGard IUD should follow these steps:

  • Seek medical treatment from a trusted physician and focus on healing and recovery.
  • Speak with a lawyer. A firm like Inserra | Kelley | Sewell, with years of experience helping patients injured by defective drugs and medical devices, can help.
  • Gather any paperwork you have. Document as much as you can, including the dates of your doctor appointments, when the doctor realized the problem, and what needed to be done for your treatment. Your attorney will be able to guide you and find anything else that might be useful, such as physician testimonies.

Although the ParaGard IUD works reliably for many women, some face life-altering side effects from defective devices. If you have been injured by a ParaGard IUD, you should reach out and speak to us at Inserra | Kelley | Sewell Injury Attorneys. We understand how difficult it can be to overcome these injuries and the hardship they can cause sufferers and their loved ones. Our compassionate attention and advice will help you determine whether you have a legal case. If you were injured by a defective medical device, you deserve to have someone representing you who will make sure you get the help you need. Do not delay. We look forward to helping you.

The team at Inserra Kelley and Sewell are a no nonsense group of professionals that handled my case with tact and care.... Every step of the way I was notified promptly and advised on a course of action. They handled the negotiation side of things and handled all the back end work for me. In my particular case, I feel that I got what I was owed and wouldn't hesitate to work with them again if the need ever arose. Craig is super friendly and down to earth and even helped me seek employment at one point.Overall, a great group of folks to deal with and they really make you feel like family. Thanks guys for the help when I needed it more
