We are investigating cases Nationwide where women implanted with the ParaGard Birth Control Device suffered injury due to device failure; situations where:
- the ParaGard device was being removed and broke apart during surgery; and,
- instances where one or both of the arms of the ParaGard device break apart resulting in the need for surgery.
Manufactured by Teva Pharmaceuticals, the ParaGard IUD model T-380A contraceptive device has been quite popular. It is a small, T-shaped device that uses copper to prevent pregnancy as opposed to hormones; the only hormone-free IUD currently on the market. However, the “breakage issues” result in migration of parts of the device to other body areas, possible organ perforation by the broken parts, and the need for surgery to remove the device and repair any associated damage.
If you or someone you know has been implanted with the ParaGard T-380A IUD Birth Control Device and required corrective surgery, contact us online or call us at 1-866-252-3535.
