Case Update December 2020: The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation has issued a transfer order to centralize Paragard lawsuits. Cases filed throughout the federal court system will be transferred to the Northern District of Georgia, and the MDL docket will be assigned to the U.S. District Judge Leigh Martin May.
A number of devices have been developed to provide women with the means to prevent pregnancy. One such invention is the intrauterine device (IUD) which is almost 100% effective. The popularity of this contraception method has significantly increased over the last 20 years. One popular brand is the Paragard IUD (T380, T380A, Tcu380A) manufactured by Teva Pharmaceuticals.
The Food and Drug Administration first approved Paragard in 1984. Since then, the FDA has given approval for its use even in women who have not had children yet. However, with the expanding number of women receiving IUD implants, there has also been an increase in reports of complications and unexpected side effects.
Patients who have suffered injuries from a Paragard IUD will be actively looking for a product liability law firm for legal representation.
