NuvaRing lawyers are product liability attorneys who sue Merck on behalf of women injured as a result of using the NuvaRing contraceptive ring to recover compensation for their and their families’ injuries and losses.
According to the manufacturers, NuvaRing is up to 99 percent effective at preventing pregnancy (when used as directed), but it can cause a range of rare and severe side effects. In the worst cases, Nuvaring can even result in death. To date, lawyers have filed more than 100 NuvaRing lawsuits against Merck.
Among the serious side effects that are associated with NuvaRing (and that form the basis of NuvaRing lawsuits against Merck) are:
- Brain hemorrhaging
- Blood clots
- Deep vein thrombosis (“DVT,” a condition in which blood clots become stuck in the legs’ deep veins, impeding healthy circulation)
- Gallbladder disease
- Heart attack, stroke and/or pulmonary embolism (these conditions arise when blood clots hinder the circulation of blood to the heart, brain and lungs, respectively.)
- Liver tumors (either malignant or benign).
Women 35 years and older who have a history of smoking, high blood pressure, and/or any of the above-mentioned conditions will have a significantly higher risk of developing severe NuvaRing side effects.
