NuvaRing Lawsuit Filed on Behalf of a South Carolina Woman who Developed Two Blood Clots While Using NuvaRing, Reports Wright & Schulte LLC
Date:2/18/2013

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) February 18, 2013

Wright & Schulte LLC, an experienced defective medical device law firm, has filed a NuvaRing lawsuit on behalf of a South Carolina woman who developed two blood clots in her right leg, allegedly caused by NuvaRing. The NuvaRing lawsuit, which names Organon USA, Inc., N.V. Organon, Schering Corp., Merck & Co., Inc., and Merck Sharp & Dohme, Corp. as Defendants, was filed on January 24, 2013 in U.S. District Court, District of South Carolina. (Case No. 0:13-cv-00222-MDL)

According to this latest NuvaRing lawsuit, the Plaintiff began using the device in January 2007. In July 2010, she began experiencing pain and swelling in her right leg. Upon being admitted to the hospital, a doppler venous exam revealed a clot in Plaintiff’s right leg. While the clot was treated with anticoagulants, she continued to use NuvaRing. A month later, an ultrasound revealed yet another blood clot in her right thigh. Among other things, the complaint alleges allege that the Defendants knew, but failed to disclose, that NuvaRing had a higher risk of thromboembolic complications, including pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, and sudden death, compared to oral contraceptives.

According to the complaint, NuvaRing was the first and only once-a-month vaginal birth control ring, and is touted as having the same efficacy as birth control pills or the patch in preventing pregnancy, but with more convenience. However, a growing body of research has found evidence that using NuvaRing can increase the risk that a young woman will suffer a serious blood clot compared to traditional birth control pills. According to a study published by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in 2011, NuvaRing raised the risk of blood clots by 56% when compared to older birth control pills. During the summer of 2012, two additional studies published in The New England Journal of Medicine and the British Medical Journal indicated that users of NuvaRing faced a higher risk of suffering dangerous blood clots, as well as heart attacks and strokes.

A number of NuvaRing lawsuits have been filed in a federal multidistrict litigation before Rodney W. Sippel of the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Missouri (MDL No. 1964). Additional NuvaRing claims are pending in a Mass Tort proceeding in the Bergen County Superior Court of New Jersey (Docket No. BER-L-3081-09 MT). All of the NuvaRing lawsuits claim the device caused young women to suffer serious, life-threatening injuries, including pulmonary emboli, deep vein thrombosis, heart attacks, blood clots and stroke.
