PRESS RELEASE:

NuvaRing is manufactured by Merck subsidiaries Organon Pharmaceuticals USA Inc., Organon USA Inc., Organon International Inc., Schering Plough Corp., and Akzo Nobel NV. The lawyers at Bernstein Liebhard LLP are currently offering free and confidential NuvaRing lawsuit evaluations to individuals who suffered complications as a result of using NuvaRing.

Merck Currently Defending More Than 950 Lawsuits Involving NuvaRing Side Effects

On February 28, 2012, Merck released its 10-K earnings statement report for the fiscal year 2011. According to the report, the company is currently defending over 950 NuvaRing lawsuits.* As detailed in the report, plaintiffs contend that the company failed to adequately design and manufacture NuvaRing and failed to adequately warn of the alleged increased risk of NuvaRing side effects. Plaintiffs are seeking damages for injuries allegedly sustained from using the contraceptive device, including sudden death, heart attack and stroke. The majority of these cases are pending in a federal multidistrict litigation in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri before Judge Rodney Sippel (MDL No. 1964), and in a coordinated proceeding in Bergen County Superior Court of New Jersey before Judge Brian R. Martinotti (Docket No. BER-L-3081-09).

Those who experienced NuvaRing side effects may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other injuries. Our lawyers and staff understand the sensitive nature of the complications caused by NuvaRing and will answer your questions in a caring and sympathetic manner. For more information about filing a lawsuit, contact an attorney at Bernstein Liebhard LLP at (877) 779-1414 or at info@consumerinjurylawyers.com.
