Houston, Texas (PRWEB) May 15, 2013
Top legal firm D. Miller & Associates, PLLC reports it continues to field nationwide inquiries from women seeking inclusion in a legal action against major pharmaceutical producer Merck.
The NuvaRing lawsuit attracting interest involves the drug company’s vaginal ring contraceptive product by the same name, according to the law firm.
As part of a new initiative a website dedicated to informing women of the allegations surrounding the contraceptive product, as well as providing guidance to those weighing legal claims against Merck, has been established.
“The active ingredient in NuvaRing is considered a ‘fourth generation’ contraceptive,” D. Miller & Associates’ top NuvaRing lawyer Darren Miller states. “It uses ethinyl estradiol and etonogestrel—which are alleged to put people at a higher risk of developing blood clots, strokes, and heart attacks.”
The court will determine if women taking NuvaRing, and the doctors prescribing it, were adequately warned by Merck of the possible higher risk of severe side effects—particularly with regard to blood clots, he notes.
An article in the journal Law 360 dated May 3, 2013 has more on this.
“You might want to consider joining a lawsuit against the manufacturer if you or a loved one suffered serious medical issues after using NuvaRing,” Miller adds. “There are a growing number of related instances involving serious injuries and even death. A free consultation with one of our attorneys will determine if you have a valid claim.”
