Anyone who suffered a blood clot, stroke, DVT or pulmonary embolism after using NuvaRing is urged to contact DrugRisks or speak with a lawyer about their legal rights as soon as possible.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 23, 2013
The birth control safety advocates at DrugRisks.com are announcing updated news on the site for women who have used the vaginal ring contraceptive NuvaRing. The resource center has learned that the first trial for patients alleging blood clots will begin in June.
DrugRisks was created to improve the safety of patients using popular prescription devices like NuvaRing by providing the latest warnings, recalls, studies and legal news. Visitors can determine if others are experiencing similar side effects and decide if they need legal advice.
Health experts have warned that contraceptive rings like NuvaRing may have higher blood clot risks than traditional birth control pills. Last year, the New England Journal of Medicine published a study showing vaginal ring contraceptives could relate to a 2.5 to 3-fold increased risk of blood clots*.
With the number of patients filing a NuvaRing lawsuit, approximately 1,097 cases have been consolidated to a special federal court in Missouri. The formal case is known as In re: NuvaRing Products Liability Litigation, No. 08-md-1964, JPML, Eastern District Missouri. U.S. District Judge Rodney Sippel recently scheduled the first trial to start in October**.
Now, DrugRisks has been updated with new information from the New Jersey Superior Court in Bergen County, where hundreds more cases reside. According to a Case Management Order dated March 5th, the first NuvaRing lawsuit trial there will begin on June 17, 2013. (Docket No. BER-L-3081-09 MT).
Anyone who suffered a blood clot, stroke, DVT or pulmonary embolism after using NuvaRing is urged to contact DrugRisks or speak with a lawyer about their legal rights as soon as possible. Although there has been no official NuvaRing recall, the drug has been linked to serious side effects.
Due to the specialized nature of federal MDL drug injury cases, DrugRisks cautions patients to seek a lawyer with experience in this litigation, and only recommends lawyers and law firms who have already handled NuvaRing lawsuits.
