AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and they are now actively providing expert opinion in view of the recent news on Nuva Ring lawsuits.
On November 20th, 2012, US District Judge Rodney W. Sippel ordered that the first NuvaRing Multi-District (MDL) bellwether trial is set on July 8th, 2013 (MDL 1964, U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri). NuvaRing is a popular internal birth control device, a vaginal ring placed near the cervix that was approved by the FDA in 2001.
According to court documents issued at the end of August 2012, more than 1,000 lawsuits were consolidated in the Nuva Ring Multidistrict Litigation. All of the lawsuits concern similar allegations that blood clots from Nuva Ring caused women to suffer injuries including pulmonary embolism, stroke, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or sudden death.
On November 19th, 2012, a Baltimore woman filed a lawsuit in Pennsylvania Eastern District Court (case no. 2:2012cv06506) alleging she suffered pulmonary embolism from Nuva Ring.
Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com updated the website and, now, can actively provide an expert opinion including how to get in contact with legal counsel easily and inexpensively in case of alleged NuvaRing severe complications. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, adds that the relevant information illustrates that people continue to file NuvaRing lawsuits. "For that reason", he continues, "our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
According to the study published on May 10th, 2012 in the British Medical Journal, women who use transdermal patches or vaginal rings for contraception (including NuvaRing) have a 7.9 and 6.5 times increased risk of confirmed venous thrombosis compared with non-users of hormonal contraception of the same age.
