Essure and Internal Injuries

Established Lawyers Represent Women Harmed by Essure Birth Control Devices

Proven litigators assist clients in the Virginias, Carolinas and Florida

For many women, a permanent, nonsurgical birth control method seemed like the ideal solution to their family planning needs. In 2002, Bayer Healthcare introduced Essure to the U.S. market. This product consists of small coils that can be implanted by a doctor into a woman’s fallopian tubes in a minimally invasive procedure without the need for general anesthesia. After approximately three months, the swelling that results is supposed to block fertilization in a way that is similar to tubal ligation surgery. Unfortunately, problems in the design and construction of Essure inserts have led to product failures and serious harm to patients. The experienced attorneys of Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban represent women in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia and Florida who have suffered due to the defects in the design and manufacture of Essure. If you or a loved one experienced problems after receiving an Essure implant, we’ll review your situation and outline your rights.

Firm pursues relief for women hurt by broken and migrating implants

In April 2018, the Food and Drug Administration restricted the sale and distribution of Essure to only those doctors and healthcare facilities who agree to provide patients with an FDA-approved safety checklist that clearly specified the risks of the Essure insert. That action led Bayer to stop the sale and distribution of this defective medical device after December 31, 2018. Still, many women are already eligible for relief, because they’ve endured side effects such as:

  • Organ perforation — Failure to place the metal coils properly can result in perforation to the fallopian tubes. Moreover, when a device shifts to the pelvis or another part of the body, other organs are threatened.
  • Shifting coils — If an Essure implant migrates, it can increase inflammation to a harmful level and cause serious consequences that might result in a hysterectomy or even death.
  • Ectopic pregnancy — Women who become pregnant after receiving an Essure implant are more likely to have fertilization occur within the fallopian tube. In this medical condition, known as an ectopic pregnancy, the fertilized egg cannot survive, and the mother may face potentially life-threatening bleeding.
  • Allergic reactions — The use of nickel in the Essure coils can trigger an allergic reaction in women unaware of the risk.

    This law firm helped me get the VA to classify my husband as 100% disabled from an injury he suffered while in the Navy which later gave rise to Parkinson's. They're very good.
