Although the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved the intrauterine device (IUD) Paragard, it may nonetheless carry risks for serious side effects in some women. If you suffer adverse health effects after using Teva Pharmaceuticals’ Paragard IUD, our firm will seek the compensation you deserve.
Our medical device liability team at Loncar Lyon Jenkins can evaluate your case for free to determine if you qualify for compensation. We understand the design defects that have harmed Paragard users, and we hold manufacturers liable for their harmful negligence.
We Can Determine Whether You are Eligible to File a Lawsuit Against Teva Pharmaceuticals
Experts have linked the Paragard IUD to several health risks that may require medical intervention, including inflammatory reactions, allergic reactions, organ damage, damage to the uterine wall, and other severe conditions. You may take legal action if you need medical treatment, surgical removal of the IUD, or suffer any damages due to a defective IUD.
Manufacturers Teva Pharmaceuticals and CooperSurgical, Inc. are among the defendants sued for defective Paragard IUDs. Those who thought Paragard was a safe form of birth control are suing these manufacturers because of:
- A broken IUD
- Pelvic inflammatory disease
- Pelvic infection
- Attachment to the uterus
- Complications during the device removal process
- IUD migration
- Organ perforation
- Intrauterine pregnancy
- Ectopic pregnancy
Plaintiffs claim that manufacturers failed to warn of these potential risks. We will argue that the birth control device caused you harm that manufacturers should have known and warned you of.
Identifying complications with an IUD and covering necessary treatment can be costly. Negligent medical device manufacturers should cover these costs and any other damages caused by a Paragard IUD.

What Types of Damages Can You Recover Through a Paragard IUD Lawsuit?
Teva Pharmaceuticals or other liable parties may be financially responsible for:
- Specialist appointments
- Imaging tests
- Medical bills for any additional services related to the defective Paragard IUD
- Recovery and rehabilitation
- Prescription medication
- Follow-up appointments
- Lost wages during recovery
Victims of a defective IUD don’t always immediately recognize when something is wrong. This can allow medical conditions to worsen and ultimately result in painful, costly injuries and losses.
For example, you may not realize there is a problem until medical professionals remove the IUD, only to discover an arm of the T-shaped device has broken off or the copper wire has unspooled and remains in your body.
Removing the copper coil may require imaging tests, more doctor’s visits, and perhaps even invasive surgeries, along with the corresponding recovery process. You should not have to pay for these steps when the product is defective.
You Can Seek Damages That Extend to Your Personal Life
As a form of birth control, IUDs are designed for easy removal in case you want to start a family. However, an adverse reaction or dangerous product could mean permanent infertility, ectopic pregnancies, and potentially life-changing medical conditions.
Moreover, the trauma of suffering harm from a supposedly safe medical device can be substantial, perhaps even affecting personal relationships.
When we examine your case, we will listen to how this faulty device has affected you physically, emotionally, psychologically, and relationally. We will use that input to inform our pursuit of damages for you, and those damages may include:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of fertility
- Other long-term psychological, emotional, and health effects
- Loss of consortium
Reproductive health and relationships are deeply personal parts of your life, and you deserve justice if the Paragard IUD has negatively impacted you.
How We Support Your Product Liability Suit
Some product liability cases end up becoming class action lawsuits. We will explore your eligibility for any active class action lawsuits or any such lawsuits that may arise. We will also consider filing your case individually.
Most personal injury cases require you to prove negligence. Negligence occurs if you suffer harm due to the carelessness or recklessness of another party. You do not need to do that with product liability lawsuits. Here, you only must prove that you used the product as directed and it harmed you.
How We’ll Work to Prove You Deserve Compensation in a Paragard IUD Lawsuit
In addition to using evidence to support your case, we can gather evidence of your own experience, compiling records and testimony to prove what happened and emphasize manufacturer fault. We may build your case with:
- Medical records
- Diagnostic imaging scans
- Doctors’ testimony
- Expert consultation
- Witness testimony
Consulting with experts can be incredibly illuminating, explaining what went wrong to cause your injuries and lending credibility to your claim.
Product liability cases have a statute of limitations, with Texas’s being two years from the date of the injury or discovery of the injury, per Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003. However, some aspects can shorten that window, so contact our team today to learn more.
When Choosing a Law Firm, Consider Who You’re Seeking Compensation From
Teva Pharmaceuticals and other manufacturers linked to the Paragard IUD are well aware of pending litigation. They are in a defensive posture, fighting to pay as little as possible to victims of their negligence.
