Before you start an Essure birth control lawsuit, there are some key steps you need to follow to ensure your case has a strong foundation and has an increased chance of a successful outcome.

Essure is a birth control device used by thousands of women in the US.

 Bayer, the manufacturers of Essure, claimed it was a safe permanent form of contraception, however there have been hundreds of cases where women have suffered serious and painful side effects. In some cases, the metal coils have migrated, perforated organs and doctors have had no choice but to do a complete hysterectomy.

In these types of cases, women have had the grounds to file a lawsuit against Essure. Bayer never warned patients about the potential risks the device could cause to their physical health. (Learn more about why there are lawsuits against Essure)

If you’re in this position and looking to start an Essure lawsuit, then here is what you must do.

Collect medical documentation about your case

Before speaking to a lawyer, it’s worthwhile to collect any documents you have about your Essure device, medical appointments and procedures you’ve had. If you’ve had to have corrective surgery because of the damage Essure has caused, your lawyer will want to know and see evidence it took place.

It’s beneficial to collect all evidence now so, when you have your first meeting with your attorney, you can give them your information and they can assess whether your case is strong enough to go to court.

Speak to your doctor

In the cases against Essure, women have suffered serious complications. These are side effects that Bayer never warned their patients about; perforation of the organs and having a complete hysterectomy.

Speak to your doctor and get information about the side effects and injuries you’ve experienced because of the device. If your case can go forward, your attorney will want a detailed account of what you’ve gone through so it’s beneficial to get this information now.

Hire an attorney

Once you’ve got all the information about your case, it’s time to look for an attorney. While you may be tempted to go with the lawyer who is a family friend or an attorney from a law firm you’ve seen a billboard, you should take some time to do your research and find an attorney who has the experience to handle an Essure birth control lawsuit.

Filing a lawsuit against a company like Bayer, requires an attorney who is not afraid to stand against a multi-billion dollar company. They need experience working in high profile cases and have the ability to work confidently in a courtroom. Along with their personal experience, they need to understand Essure lawsuits.

Hiring an Essure birth control lawyer increases your chances of having a successful outcome. These lawyers understand how Essure lawsuits are carried out and their knowledge about the case means they will know how to approach your lawsuit, compared to another type of lawyer.
