The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved birth control device, Essure, in 2002 after Bayer AG submitted the device to be tested through the FDA’s Premarket Approval (PMA) process.

Essure has recently been found to cause major health complications in the women it is implanted it. These complications can be dire and include:

  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Unintended pregnancies
  • Severe pelvic pain
  • Organ perforation
  • Miscarriages
  • Hair loss
  • Memory lapses

What Is The Status of Essure Class Action Lawsuits?

As of May 2016, no reports have indicated that an Essure class action lawsuit is imminent nor that one is being actively explored.

Additionally, it does not appear that multidistrict litigation is coming soon either.

A lack of these two entities is important to note as victims must file standalone lawsuits against Bayer and will not have the ability to join a larger entity until later in the future.

With Bayer undergoing FDA mandated post-market research on their Essure device, the opportunity for either of these entities to go active may rise depending on the findings of the aforementioned research.

While neither a class action or multidistrict litigation is being explored, Essure lawsuits have a unique advantage at their disposal.

A bipartisan bill calling for an Essure ban until further research is conducted has been pushed on the congressional floor for years.

While the bill is unlikely to pass, the presence of congressional pressure on Bayer offers plaintiffs the ability to take advantage of that pressure.

As more lawsuits are filed, the presence of government and FDA pressure on Bayer could lead them to seek a quick end to their Essure legal troubles.

Am I Eligible To Join An Essure Class Action Lawsuit?

Standards to join a class action lawsuit are often the same as those of filing an initial dangerous device lawsuit.

Your initial eligibility can be determined based on the results of two processes.

The first process that must be executed is the examination of all medical records by a qualified medical team.

If selected as your representation, our team will acquire and examine your records free of charge to assist in the eligibility determination process.

The second process that is emphasized when determining initial lawsuit eligibility is whether medical records indicate that the health complications occurred within the state mandated time-frame for lawsuit filing.

These deadlines vary by state and can be found here.

Effectively navigating these deadlines are vital to ensuring you retain the highest chance of being deemed eligible to file an Essure lawsuit. Missing any of the relevant state deadlines could result in your claims eligibility chances being eliminated.

While a class action lawsuit has yet to be formed, in the event one does, our legal team will offer consultation to assist you as to whether a class action is the best endeavor to serve your unique needs.
