NuvaRing Injury Lawyer Provides New Information for Consumers

The website for the Driscoll Firm, LLC,, now features information about NuvaRing and the legal options for those who believe they have suffered injuries such as a pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, strokes requiring hospitalization or other venous thrombotic events from use of the contraceptive.

St. Louis, MO (Vocus/PRWEB) January 17, 2013 – NuvaRing injury lawyer John J. Driscoll says consumers who believe they have suffered harm from using the NuvaRing birth control device should review helpful information now available at his firm’s website,

The Driscoll Firm, LLC, is a nationally recognized personal injury law firm that focuses on helping consumers and patients who have been injured by defective medical products and pharmaceuticals. The firm assists clients throughout the United States.

Currently, Driscoll says, the firm’s drug injury lawyers are focused on helping those who have suffered a pulmonary embolism (PE), deep vein thrombosis (DVT), blood clot, stroke requiring hospitalization, or heart attack requiring hospitalization or other venous thrombotic events that may be related to use of the NuvaRing contraceptive, which is currently manufactured by Merck & Co., Inc.

“With all of the medical and legal information that is available today online and elsewhere about the NuvaRing birth control device, it can get confusing for people,” Driscoll says.

“By adding this new information to our website, we wanted to make clear what NuvaRing’s potential risks are and to educate consumers about their legal rights if they believe they have suffered health issues or lost a loved one due to use of this contraceptive,” he adds.

A New York Times in-depth report on birth control describes NuvaRing as a vaginally inserted, two-inch, flexible ring that contains both estrogen and progestin (etonogestrel), which is a synthetic version of the steroid hormone, progestogen.

Since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved NuvaRing in 2001, the agency has received at least 300 reports of serious adverse events, including reports of blood clots, strokes and deaths, Mother Jones has reported.

The new content on discusses these risks, including pulmonary embolism (PE) and deep vein thrombosis (DVT), among other topics and answers frequently asked questions about the possible legal ramifications of a NuvaRing injury.

“Anyone who believes they have been harmed by NuvaRing should review this new information on our website, but that’s only the first step,” Driscoll says. “To learn more about one’s legal options, it’s important to follow up on this information and contact a lawyer with extensive experience in protecting the rights of drug injury victims.”
