Alabama’s female residents may want to take note. Over the last few months, there has been an increasing number of product liability claims filed against Organon USA, Inc. as well as Merck & Co. Inc. Collectively, the companies are involved with the manufacture of the popular birth control device known as the NuvaRing.
To date, more than 1,100 liability filings have been made against the product’s manufacturers. Many of the product liability filings are part of a multidistrict case known as MDL 1964 (Missouri). However, there are other cases related to the product that have been filed elsewhere in the country against the companies involved. Those cases have yet to be added to the MDL 1964 case.
Jointly, the current plaintiffs are asserting that the birth control device has been associated with causing incidents of pulmonary embolism, cardiac arrest and deep vein thrombosis. They are not the only sobering side effects connected to the product either. Other negative consequences include, but are not limited to the development of liver tumors, various cancers and pancreatitis. All of the NuvaRing product liability cases mentioned have yet to be decided. As such, women with a history of using the birth control device should contact a product liability lawyer without delay.
