Essure is a form on in-surgical birth control that is directly implanted into the body. This device is made from a nickel-titanium could that contains a harmful plastic known as polyethylene terephthalate that can be harmful when permanently implanted into the body. The device was originally approved by the FDA in 2002.
As of May 2016, Bayer has yet to issue anything for settlement offers to plaintiffs nor has a court decided to favor plaintiffs in any current lawsuits.
However in March of 2016 a U.S. District Judge made a decision in which two plaintiffs were allowed to proceed with their lawsuits agains Bayer. This decision stoped Bayer attempts at having all cases dropped against themselves.
The judge stated that Bayer failed to adequately warn consumers about Essure’s extensive health risks and actively misled consumers through product advertisement. Now that cases are free to proceed, settlement offers will depend on the results of the first cases that make it to trial.
However, it is important to note that because a multidistrict litigation has not been created, it is possible that lawsuits filed in other courts could be subjected to a different judges interpretation of Essures status as a premarket approved device.
While it is unknown how large a potential Essure settlement would be, pursued settlements will attempt to cover:
- Costs of lawsuit incurred
- Compensatory and general damages
- Punitive damages
- Special and incidental damages, including medical expenses and lost wages
- Loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, and disability
