Florida Essure Lawsuit Lawyer
Did you suffer injuries or medical complications related to Essure birth control? Find out how Leifer & Ramirez can help.
Serious questions have been raised about the safety of the Essure birth control device. In April of 2018, the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA) put significant restrictions on the sale and distribution of the Essure device. In July, Bayer announced that it will stop selling Essure by the end of the year. Thus far, thousands of women have filed claims alleging serious abdominal damage caused by this defective medical device.

If you, your partner, or your child suffered injuries or adverse health complications after having the Essure birth control device implanted, please contact our Florida Essure lawsuit lawyers for a free, no obligation review of your claim.
Understanding Essure Lawsuits
Since it was first approved by the FDA, nearly 750,000 American woman have had the Essure birth control device implemented. Strong evidence has been presented that the product’s manufacturers failed to properly disclose the considerable risks associated with this medical device.
While Bayer marketed this product as safe, effective, and easier than most other forms of birth control, tens of thousands of women across the country have reported serious medical problems related to Essure. Lawsuits are being filed by the patients who have suffered complications.
Essure Injuries and Medical Complications
Defective Essure birth control devices have been associated with a wide range of injuries and medical issues — some of them mild and moderate, others extremely severe. Patients contend that the side effects and health complications have been far worse than the likely effects that were listed by Bayer. If you or your loved one suffered any of the following injuries or medical problems related to Essure birth control, you may have a valid legal claim:
- Removal surgery;
- Ectopic pregnancy;
- Menstrual problems;
- Severe abdominal pain;
- Allergic reaction;
- Excessive bleeding;
- Migration of the device;
- Organ perforation; and
- Wrongful death.
If an Essure birth control device breaks apart or moves — which has been reported in many cases — a patient may be required to undergo multiple, invasive surgical operations to fix the problem. In the worst cases, a hysterectomy may be required.
