Am I Eligible for a Paragard Lawsuit?
Are you eligible for a Paragard lawsuit?
Despite the Paragard IUD’s high effectiveness, new evidence has shed light on breakages and removal complications that can lead to serious and permanent injury. Many women have filed suit against the manufacturer alleging that Paragard is dangerously defective because it can break into pieces when removed and embed into the walls of the uterus, sometimes requiring painful follow-up surgery to correct.
As lawsuits against Paragard continue to grow, our clients who use the Paragard IUD often ask us, “Am I eligible for a Paragard lawsuit?”
Here’s what you need to know about Paragard lawsuit eligibility.
Allegations Against Paragard
The leading manufacturer of Paragard, Teva Pharmaceuticals, faces dozens of lawsuits from women who say that the company failed to adequately warn them that the Paragard had a risk of breaking or fracturing during the removal process, sometimes causing serious complications.
For some women, complications resulting from Paragard removal or a broken Paragard IUD have left them with permanent injuries and unable to have children in the future. Paragard manufacturers have disputed these allegations, but in 2019 the FDA issued a warning letter to a Paragard manufacturing subsidiary stating that the company blatantly misrepresented these risks in its TV advertisement.
Now, women who have been harmed by the device fracturing in their uterine cavity are seeking compensation for the injuries, pain and suffering they have experienced from this defective medical device.
If you believe you’ve been injured due to a broken Paragard or Paragard removal, please call 1-800-525-7111 for a FREE claim investigation.

Paragard Multi-District Litigation
Over the past year, lawsuits have been filed against Teva Pharmaceuticals in district courts across the United States by women who have been injured by the Paragard IUD. These lawsuits were recently consolidated into multi-district litigation (MDL) after a hearing before the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML). As of late 2020, more than 55 different complaints have been filed in 29 U.S. District Courts claiming substantially the same allegation — that the Paragard IUD is unreasonably dangerous and defective because there is a high risk of the device breaking up and embedding in the uterus during the removal process.
Now that the Paragard cases have been consolidated into MDL, Riddle & Brantley’s Paragard lawsuit lawyers anticipate that hundreds more cases against the device manufacturer will be filed in the coming year.
Paragard IUD Dangerous Side Effects
Over the past few years, Teva Pharmaceutical’s copper-bound Paragard IUD has been linked to numerous cases of serious injury. Now, studies have shown that when the Paragard IUD device breaks apart or fractures during the removal process, it can cause extreme pain and significant internal damage that often require follow-up surgery.
At worst, the Paragard IUD can cause such significant internal damage to the uterus during removal that it requires a follow-up hysterectomy.
In addition to fracturing and breaking apart, Paragard copper IUDs have been linked to a variety of other serious complications and injuries caused during the removal process, including:
- Tears in the lining of the uterus
- IUD displacement or migration
- The IUD becoming stuck in the uterus
- Perforation of the uterus
- Organ damage
- Ectopic pregnancy
Women who have suffered these complications after Paragard removal may be eligible to bring a Paragard IUD lawsuit claim to recover significant compensation.
