Women who’ve suffered vision or hearing problems due to intracranial pressure, or IUD perforation requiring surgery, may be entitled to compensation from a lawsuit. Contact DrugNews today for more information or to speak with a lawyer.
In 2008, the FDA first warned that women may suffer uterine perforation while undergoing procedures to implant their IUD. In 2011, doctors revealed that many needed surgery to remove the devices after they tore through reproductive organs and moved into the abdomen.
This year, several lawsuits have also been filed by women who suffered vision loss due to Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension. Due to the growing volume, a federal panel has convened to centralize these cases in one special court.
For now, these lawsuits are still in the evidence-gathering phases and there has not yet been a verdict or settlement. However, lawyers expect trials to begin soon, and are helping those affected file claims.
