Essure Allegations and Complaints Against Bayer

Most of the Essure lawsuits targeting Bayer were filed by women suing for pain and suffering caused by the device. Not only is Bayer accused of failing to report the potential for serious side effects, they also allegedly falsified their application for device approval.

The medical implant market totals $400 billion annually and many of these manufacturers care far more about their profits than patients’ potential health risks. Many of the lawsuits claim that the manufacturer’s failure to warn physicians and patients of potential side effects is what caused the harm.

Specific allegations made in the lawsuits include:

  • Failing to properly train physicians on using Essure
  • Encouraging physicians to persuade patients to use Essure
  • Distributing Essure to unqualified physicians to sell to patients
  • Failing to disclose over 16,000 medical device complaints about malfunctioning to the FDA
  • Failure to track complications associated with Essure
  • Failure to complete risk analysis for Essure
  • Manufacturing the Essure device for three years with no license
  • Actively concealing and failing to report the adverse events associated with Essure

Essure Lawsuits against Bayer

Normally, it’s common practice for medical manufacturers to warn physicians and patients about the potential of any serious side effects. Shockingly, thousands of women have filed Essure lawsuits, accusing Bayer of intentionally concealing complications associated with their birth control implant.

As of April 13, over 16,800 Essure lawsuits had already been filed against Bayer. The health complications associated with Essure have been nothing short of severe and debilitating, requiring additional operations for many patients and proving to be fatal for some. To this day, Essure lawyers continue helping women who believe they’re pain and suffering has been caused by using the implant device.

Filing a Essure Lawsuit Against Bayer

Contacting a lawyer is the first step in filing an Essure lawsuit against Bayer. Many Essure attorneys will offer a free case evaluation if you think you’re suffering because of the birth control implant. Generally speaking, many Essure lawyers offer a contingency fee and a free case evaluation, meaning they won’t charge anything if they decide not to take on the case. These Essure attorneys typically don’t charge at all unless the case against Bayer is successful.

The statute of limitations, or time limit, for filing these types of cases varies state by state. An Essure lawyer should be able to help determine the statute of limitations in your particular state. Depending on the state, women typically have one to five years to file a lawsuit over Essure. When a patient has died from Essure, the statute of limitations is generally less and can be one from one to three years for a wrongful death action. The wrongful death action gives family’s of the Essure victim the right to compensation for the death of their loved one.

Women should not hesitate to contact an Essure lawyer if suspect their suffering is associated with the medical implant. If you wait too long, you could run out of time and lose your right to file a case.
