If You Suffered Injuries After a Paragard IUD Removal, You Need a Defective Medical Device Attorney You Can Trust. Contact Grimes Teich Anderson Today.

Paragard, a small, T-shaped plastic intrauterine device (IUD) that uses copper instead of hormones is implanted into the uterus to prevent pregnancy.

Claimants also allege that the manufacturer of Paragard knew about the product defect but did not adequately warn doctors and patients about device breakage and injury risks.

Now, victims across the United States are seeking compensation. If you have suffered injuries due to Paragard IUD removal, you are not alone. Consult with the defective device attorneys at Grimes Teich Anderson as soon as possible for your best chance at maximum compensation.

What to Know About Paragard IUD Lawsuits

The Paragard IUD removal procedure is nonsurgical and done by a healthcare provider in minutes during a routine office visit. During removal, the arms of the device are supposed to fold up, according to the removal instructions provided in the prescribing information.

According to claimants, the device broke or fractured inside them as it was removed, causing injury requiring surgery such as a hysterectomy.

The central claims of Paragard lawsuits include:

  • The IUD has manufacturing and design defects
  • Its labeling does not adequately warn about breakage risks
  • The defendant manufacturers, Cooper Surgical Inc. and Teva Pharmaceuticals USA Inc., were negligent

Injuries and complications due to Paragard IUD removal may vary from patient to patient, but they should all be taken seriously.
