Thousands of patients are nervous about their NuvaRing prescription. It’s easy to understand why. NuvaRing, a popular contraceptive medical product, puts women at risk of a series of potentially serious side effects, including deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), stroke, heart attack, and death.
Perhaps the most disconcerting fact is this one: NuvaRing patients are more than 6 times likely to develop a potentially fatal blood clot. In fact, the FDA has compiled statistics that indicate that more than forty women have died as a result of their NuvaRing device.
Did you know about these risks before you began your NuvaRing treatment? Many patients are taken aback upon learning about the threat that NuvaRing poses to their health. Neither advertisements on TV nor the box packaging communicated the level of risk that they might face. As a result, they took on a level of danger they didn’t intend.
This isn’t right. For patients like these who subsequently experience a NuvaRing-related harm, a medical product liability lawsuit may be appropriate. To find out more about how these lawsuits work and whether you are eligible for compensation, talk to the lawyers and dedicated professionals at the law firm of Fears Nachawati today.
