Overview

Essure is a permanent sterilization device made by Bayer that has been sold in the United States since 2002. It consists of a nickel-titanium metal coil coated in polyester fibers. After it is inserted into a woman’s fallopian tubes, Essure causes a low-level inflammatory reaction. Over time, tissues grow into the coil and block off the fallopian tubes.

Essure Linked to 10X Risk of Surgery and Thousands of Injuries

Bayer markets Essure as a non-surgical outpatient procedure — an alternative to minimally-invasive “tube tying” procedures. However, studies have shown that Essure is actually more risky. Women who get Essure were 10X more likely to need follow-up surgery compared to women who get their tube tied (2.9% vs. 0.2%), according to a study published in the British Medical Journal.

FDA Orders “Black Box” Warning for Essure

In February 2016, Bayer was ordered to conduct new clinical trials and update the label on Essure to include a “Black Box” warning about severe, debilitating side effects. The FDA also required a new clinical trial to determine the risks for particular women. Click here to read more.

What’s the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm. However, our attorneys are not filing an Essure class action. Instead, we are helping women file individual lawsuits against Bayer for serious injuries caused by Essure, such as:

  • Hysterectomy
  • Migration of device outside of fallopian tubes
  • Pain
  • Bleeding
  • Fracturing of the device
  • Perforation of fallopian tubes
  • Miscarriage
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Unwanted pregnancy

About Class Actions

Class actions are beneficial when a lot of people have a relatively minor injury. Everyone joins together and collectively seeks compensation. Lawyers take a cut of the payout and divide the remainder among everyone who opts-in to the settlement.

Why Our Law Firms is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to an Essure Class Action

The disadvantages of a class action can be significant for people with the most serious injuries from a defective medical device. Class action attorneys sometimes take huge cuts of the payout, leaving little for plaintiffs facing catastrophic medical expenses and disabilities.

Instead of a class action, our lawyers file individual lawsuits. We believe every woman who was injured by Essure deserves an attorney who is committed to her case. If you were injured, we may be able to help you file a lawsuit and seek compensation from Bayer.
