NuvaRing® Class Action
A NuvaRing® class action is an option for individuals and families who feel that they have been harmed by the NuvaRing® birth control. The NuvaRing® may put women at risk of the following side effects:
- heart attack
- pulmonary embolism
- deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
Bringing the Legal Claims of Many NuvaRing® Victims Together
In a NuvaRing® class action, one or more NuvaRing® victims bring their case against the defendants together rather than separately. Such victims (plaintiffs) may be either women who have suffered an injury from NuvaRing® use or the family members of a NuvaRing® user who was injured or died due to NuvaRing® use.
May Shorten the Time for a Legal Remedy
A NuvaRing® class action simply consolidates the legal claims of many plaintiffs who are "similarly situated" or harmed in similar ways. One judge can hear all of the plaintiffs' claims together, and he or she can make a ruling that affects all of the plaintiffs at once. A class action can bring about a legal remedy in a shorter time compared to an individual lawsuit.
Becoming a Member of a NuvaRing® Class
To become a plaintiff in a NuvaRing® class action, an individual must first consult a NuvaRing® attorney or class action law firm who represents NuvaRing® victims. Every individual's case has some unique aspects, and it must first be determined whether your circumstances make you eligible for membership in the NuvaRing® class.
No NuvaRing® Class Action at This Time
At the time of this writing, a NuvaRing® class action has not yet been filed in the U.S. — although over 50 individual NuvaRing® lawsuits have been initiated. However, it is entirely possible that a NuvaRing® class action will be started in the very near future, and the best resource for finding out more about such a legal action is a NuvaRing® plaintiffs' law firm.
