St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) January 19, 2013
NuvaRing injury lawyer John J. Driscoll says consumers who believe they may have suffered harm from using the NuvaRing birth control device should review helpful information now available at his firm’s website, SettlementHelpers.com.
“With all of the medical and legal information that is available today online and elsewhere about the NuvaRing birth control device, it can get confusing for people,” Driscoll says.
“By adding this new information to our website, we wanted to make clear what NuvaRing’s potential risks are and to educate consumers about their legal rights if they believe they have suffered serious health issues or lost a loved one due to use of this contraceptive.”
The Driscoll Firm, P.C., is a nationally recognized personal injury law firm that focuses on helping consumers and patients who have been injured by defective medical products and pharmaceuticals. The firm assists clients throughout the United States.
A New York Times in-depth report on birth control describes NuvaRing as a flexible, two-inch ring that is inserted into the vagina, contains estrogen and the synthetic hormone, progestin, and which “may put women who take it at higher risk for blood clots than oral contraceptives.”
Driscoll pointed to a Danish study published online by the British Medical Journal in May 2012, finding that vaginal ring contraceptives such as NuvaRing led to a “90% higher risk of venuous thrombosis” than did combined oral contraceptives.
Driscoll says his firm currently is focused on helping those who may have suffered NuvaRing-related deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which is a type of blood clot, as well as conditions that often arise due to blood clots such as a pulmonary embolism (PE), stroke or heart attack.
The new content on SettlementHelpers.com discusses NuvaRing in detail and answers frequently asked medical and legal questions about the contraceptive.
“Anyone who believes they have been harmed by NuvaRing should review this new information on our website, but that’s only the first step,” Driscoll says. “To learn more about one’s legal options, it’s important to follow up on this information and contact a lawyer with extensive experience in protecting the rights of drug injury victims.”
