Essure® Injuries: The Legal Process
Do You Have a Case Against Bayer HealthCare?
If you or a loved one has been injured by Essure®, the implantable birth control device connected with serious injuries and even death in women nationwide, you may have a case. It is important to discuss your rights with a personal injury attorney from Fleming | Nolen | Jez, L.L.P. at your earliest convenience.
History of Essure®
Essure® was marketed by Bayer HealthCare. It went on the market in the United States in November 2002. The product was approved by the United States Food & Drug Administration. Essure® is an implantable, permanent birth control device made of two small metal coils and polyester fibers. The device is implanted in the fallopian tubes through the vagina. Over time—a period of approximately three months—the fibers cause irritation and scar tissue, performing as a barrier to conception.
