Ortho Evra Class Action Lawsuit Filed In Canada

Comments Off

The Ortho Evra birth control patch has been the subject of a lot of controversy lately. The drug has been linked to blood clots, strokes and heart attacks, as well as several deaths. Now comes word out of Canada that a law firm there has filed an Ortho Evra lawsuit as well.

The statement of claim alleges doctors and patients were not adequately warned that Ortho Evra has been associated with an increased risk of developing blood clots, pulmonary emboli, strokes, heart attacks and deep vein thrombosis.

Ortho Evra was first approved for marketing and sale in Canada as a contraceptive patch in 2002.

If you or a loved one has suffered injuries as a result of Ortho Evra or any defective drug or medical device, it may be important to contact an attorney and protect your legal rights.
