Paragard IUD Mass Tort Case Litigation

Product Description

The Paragard IUD (Intrauterine Device) is a non-hormonal, copper-releasing device used for long-term birth control. It’s designed to prevent pregnancy for up to 10 years and is implanted directly into the uterus. 

Harmful Effects

While the Paragard IUD has been effective for many users, concerns have arisen regarding its safety. There have been reports of the device breaking upon removal, leading to complications such as device migration, organ perforation, inflammation, and other severe health issues. These complications often necessitate surgical interventions and can result in long-term health problems. Due to these concerns, legal actions have been initiated against Teva Pharmaceuticals USA Inc., Teva Women’s Health Inc., Teva Women’s Health LLC, and associated entities, with claimants alleging that the companies failed to provide adequate warnings about the potential risks and produced a defective product.
