Ortho Evra Patch Makers Settling Cases
Date:4/21/2008

hion models despite having been linked to many deaths.

Approximately 4 million women have used the Ortho Evra Patch since it went on sale in 2002. Doctors who reviewed the reports commented that they were alarmed at the number of fatalities.
Side effects associated with the Ortho Evra Patch include:

-- DVT (Deep Venous Thrombosis) -- Heart Attack

-- PE (Pulmonary Embolism) -- Stroke

-- Blood Clots -- Death

The first fatality publicly blamed on the Ortho Evra patch came in April 2005, when an 18 year old Manhattan fashion student collapsed in a city subway station. An autopsy found a blood clot had moved into the victim's lung, and the medical examiner ruled that the clot was a side effect of the birth control device.

FDA records show that many patch users between the ages of 17 and 30 have suffered fatal heart attacks, blood clots and possible strokes since August 2002. Regardless of it's link to life threatening diseases, the manufacturers of the Ortho Evra Patch have continued to aggressively market the patch as a convenient alternative to oral birth control pills.

The makers of the Ortho Evra Patch, Johnson & Johnson and Ortho-McNeil, are currently settling cases. Contact Alexander Hawes, LLP now for a free, private consultation. State laws may prohibit your time to pursue legal action. For more information please contact Alexander Hawes, LLP, toll free at (800) 511-3838 or go to http://www.ortho-evra-injury-lawyer.com.
