How to Find the Best Paragard IUD Lawyer for You

It’s important to understand that not all lawyers are the same. Just like professional athletes, some are incredible and are the best in their field, while others are average or even below average. When hiring a lawyer to handle your Paragard IUD lawsuit, you need to find a a lawyer with these 3 things:

1. A history of impressive results: While past results are never a guarantee of future performance, it is important to hire a law firm that can show that they know how to win, and win “big”. If they have record setting verdicts and settlements for example, that’s a great indication that you are with the right law firm.

2. Extensive experience handling dangerous product cases: You should never hire a lawyer that does not have significant experience handing defective medical device cases. Look for a legal team with at least 10 years of experience handling cases involving dangerous medical devices and one that has handled hundreds of cases.

3. Hire a “trial” lawyer: While over 90% of personal injury and product liability settle out of court, sometimes it takes fighting in court to get you the compensation you deserve. What most people don’t realize is that most law firms accepting Paragard IUD cases are not the type of firms that will take a case to trial if need be. As a result, you may end up with a smaller settlement because the other side knows your lawyer won’t go to trial. The best Paragard IUD attorneys will take you case to trial if needed in order to get you the biggest settlement possible.

What are the Problems Caused by the Paragard IUD?

Paragard device

The main reason why women are suing is because the device is breaking during removal for many of those using the Paragard IUD. Some women require surgery to remove the broken device parts, including copper wire. Aside from device breakage, this intrauterine device (IUD) has many common side effects and serious side effects that cause health complications, including:

  • Anemia
  • Dizziness
  • Dysmenorrhea
  • Dyspareunia
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Embedment
  • Expulsion of the device (complete or partial)
  • Menstruation issues (prolonged flow, spotting)
  • Nausea
  • Organ damage
  • Pain
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
  • Pinching
  • Sepsis
  • Severe menstrual pain
  • Uterus perforation (of the uterine wall)
  • Vaginitis

The four other birth control IUDs available in the United States include Mirena, Kyleena, Liletta and Skyla. While all these have some side effects, the Mirena IUD was the only other one to face serious lawsuits as thousands of women filed lawsuits against Bayer for serious injuries suffered.
