Paragard IUD Injuries
A Legacy of Success. A Tradition of Trust.
Did Your IUD Cause Complications You Were Never Warned About?
Those who count on birth control to protect against pregnancy should not have to question whether the medication or device they’re using will seriously threaten their health. However, patients with ParaGard IUDs have ended up in serious pain, and need of surgery, after metal bits broken from their IUDs migrated around their abdominal cavities, sometimes piercing holes in the uterus or other organs.
If this happened to you, you may be able to secure compensation for the excess medical bills you accrued due to your IUD’s malfunction, along with pain and suffering and other losses. Paragard device breakage is not new, but Teva Wone’s Health Pharmaceuticals continues to sell the product with no concessions to the major injuries it has caused. We want to help anyone who suffered organ perforation or other harm from their ParaGard IUD file a claim. Our firm helped hundreds of women who had another contraceptive device , Essure, recovering thousands of dollars for their losses.

Though patients choose IUDs in part because they do not require continued attention or maintenance, some ParaGard users have experienced device breakage and need for surgery.
Some patients make it through their term of IUD use only to have difficulties when the device is taken out. Multiple patients have experienced ParaGard IUD breakage during attempted removal.
