The Finnell Firm

A previous post on this blog discussed the legal difficulties the drug manufacturer Bayer has run in to on account of its Essure birth control device.

According to what may be up to 16,000 women who were willing to file lawsuits about the device, Essure caused bleeding, pain and bad internal swelling. Not surprisingly, Bayer is fighting these allegations and claims its product is safe.

While this may be disappointing news to some, it is unfortunately not surprising. Like manufacturers of other devices, those who create birth control devices rely on their reputations for making a safe product in order to keep their businesses growing. Moreover, a string of product liability cases can cost a company millions if not tens of millions of dollars.

This is why many drug manufacturers choose to fight the claims of victims who say that their products injured them or made them sick. In other cases, even if the manufacturer may be willing to settle, what they are willing to pay can be far less than what a victim actually lost in terms of medical bills, lost wages and non-economic damages like pain and suffering.

This is why it important for Georgia victims of faulty birth control devices to have the proper legal representation. In this respect, our office has built a reputation for being willing to stand up to the tactics drug manufacturers may try to use in an effort to escape responsibility for their own products or, at least, greatly reduce their bottom line. We will work hard in our efforts to get our clients the full compensation they deserve.
