FDA Mandates New Essure Warnings as Lawsuits Move Forward

Drug manufacturer, Bayer is coming under new scrutiny for its non-surgical contraceptive, Essure. Essure is a non-surgical transcervical sterilization procedure approved in 2002 by the FDA and is intended to be a less costly and safer alternative to tubal ligation. During the outpatient procedure, bendable coils are placed into the fallopian tubes, passed from the vagina through the cervix and uterus. Scar tissue then forms around the coils and blocks the tubes from insemination, according to marketing literature provided by the manufacturer.

What is a Contingency Fee? Contingency Fees Explained

The basic concept of the contingency fee agreement is that a client does not pay upfront expenses. Further, a client does not pay legal fees unless and until the case is won and then the lawyer receives a percentage of the recovery as his or her fee. If the case is lost, there is no legal fee at all for the lawyer. It may be surprising to know that a large number of attorneys are willing to work diligently for no guarantee of payment. Not only will lawyers work hard, but often incur significant costs on a case which may never get repaid.
