1. NuvaRing

NuvaRing is a form of prescription birth control that works through the slow release of hormones. Both estrogen and progestin are slowly released over a period of 21-days.  Unfortunately, the slow release of those hormones has been linked to serious complications including stroke, blood clots, pulmonary embolism, and deep vein thrombosis.  Serious and even fatal injuries have occurred due to the complications from the dangerous hormones. Many women pursued a claim against the birth control manufacturer. A settlement was reached in 2014 and patients will be compensated based on the terms of the agreement.

2. Pradaxa

Pradaxa is a popular prescription blood thinner prescribed to patients in dozens of countries. The medication is intended to limit the chance of blood clots in patients with atrial fibrillation. Unfortunately, it has caused countless serious injuries and fatalities resulting from uncontrollable internal bleeding. Within months after the release of Pradaxa, more than 500 adverse event reports were made by the Food and Drug Administration. Patients reported heart attacks, internal bleeding in the brain, intestinal bleeding, bleeding in the kidneys and death. A lawsuit was filed to obtain compensation from Praxada’s manufacturer and a settlement was reached in 2014.
