The Ortho Evra lawyers at Chaffin Luhana LLP are dedicated to aggressively representing the rights of women injured by the Ortho Evra patch and families of those who have lost a loved one to the Ortho Evra patch.

First approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in Novemeber 2001, the Ortho Evra patch is a contraceptive device that delivers the hormones norelgestromin and ethinyl estradiol. The patch, which is to be worn for a week and then replaced by a new patch (for three consecutive weeks with the four week being patch free), is up to 99 percent effective when used as indicated. The Ortho Evra patch constantly delivers these hormones (unlike birth control pills that give a break from the hormones). The Ortho Evra patch has been found to cause a range of serious side effects making it up to 18 times more dangerous than those associated with other oral contraceptives.
Eric Chaffin and Roopal Luhana are committed to representing the rights of women injured as a result of using the Ortho Evra patch by going up against Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson which produces and markets the Ortho Evra patch.
