IF YOU OR SOMEONE CLOSE TO YOU BELIEVE THAT YOUR INJURIES MAY HAVE BEEN CAUSED BY A PHARMACEUTICAL, MEDICAL DEVICE OR TOXIC CHEMICAL, WE WANT TO KNOW AND HELP YOU EVALUATE YOUR POTENTIAL CLAIMS. HERE ARE SOME OF THE CURRENT CASES WE ARE FIGHTING.
PERMANENT BIRTH CONTROL DEVICE
Family planning decisions can be some of the most personal and sensitive decisions you make, especially when considering a permanent birth control method. For many women who preferred a non-surgical and hormone-free answer, Essure® seemed like the perfect option, boasting of no incisions or general anesthesia and a quick recovery time.
Unfortunately, many women experienced very serious side effects including chronic pelvic pain, ectopic pregnancies, perforation of the fallopian tubes or uterus, severe autoimmune reactions and even death after implantation of the Essure® device.
In April 2018, after receiving nearly 10,000 complaints from doctors and women, the FDA issued an order to restrict Bayer’s sale and distribution of the device, “to ensure that all women considering use of the permanent contraception device are provided with adequate risk information so that they can make informed decisions.” In July, Bayer announced it would halt sales of the Essure device in the United States at the end of 2018.
If you or someone you love has been harmed by the Essure® device, you need someone who will do what it takes to make sure that those responsible for your injuries are held accountable. Contact us today to see how we can put our expertise to work for you and ensure your voice is heard.
TALCUM POWDER PRODUCTS
Talcum powder – often found in products like certain baby and body powders – has long been marketed as a feminine hygiene product used to absorb moisture and prevent rashes. However, an increasing number of studies have shown that regular use of talcum powder may increase a woman’s risk for ovarian cancer – one of the most deadly forms of cancer in women.
There have been numerous verdicts related to the use of talcum powder products and ovarian cancer and mesothelioma. In fact, in July 2018, a jury awarded nearly $4.7 billion in compensatory and punitive damages after finding Johnson & Johnson liable for the plaintiffs’ ovarian cancer and for failing to inform the public of the cancer risk. Johnson & Johnson is expected to appeal the verdict.
Going up against a corporate giant like Johnson & Johnson is not for the faint of heart, but fortunately, the experts/professionals/attorneys at Common Sense Counsel have the expertise – and compassion – necessary to fight these battles on behalf of our clients and loved ones.
