Compensation for NuvaRing Injuries

Because the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved NuvaRing for sale in the United States, people naturally trusted that the product would be safe. This trust proved to be misplaced, however, as many women using the birth control device suffered serious, and occasionally deadly, side effects. If you have lost a loved one or suffered serious injuries from NuvaRing, consider your legal options carefully and make sure you hire a law firm with experience and compassion to represent you.

At Galligan Reid PC, we bring more than 25 years of civil litigation experience to every case we handle. Our Iowa birth control lawyers take a strategic, aggressive approach to every case, backed by our shared commitment to client-centered service, to help each of our clients obtain full and fair compensation.

What Is NuvaRing?

NuvaRing is a birth control product created by Merck & Co. subsidiary Organon. It is a flexible plastic ring that a patient inserts into the vagina for three weeks at a time to prevent pregnancy by emitting estrogen and progestin. Although it was approved by the FDA for U.S. sale in 2001, serious problems emerged soon after its release and public distribution. Women suffered a number of serious side effects and in the most severe cases, NuvaRing has been linked to the wrongful death of its victims. Other side effects from NuvaRing have included blood clotting, heart disease, birth defects, strokes, high blood pressure and vaginal irritation and infections.
