Our product liability lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are reviewing potential pseudotumor cerebri (PTC) lawsuits for women who have been diagnosed with this serious condition after receiving a Mirena IUD birth control implant or the Depo-Provera birth control shot. It appears that inadequate warnings were provided for women about the risk that side effects may cause a dangerous increase in pressure around the brain.
Also commonly referred to as idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH), pseudotumor cerebri (PTC) is a potential side effect of the Mirena IUD and the Depo-Provera shot, which may cause problems symptoms similar to a tumor, such as:
- Blurred Vision, Double Vision or Blind Spots
- Severe Headaches or Migraines
- Tinnitus, or Ringing in the Ears
- Papilledema, or Swelling of the Optic Disk
- Nausea, Vomiting or Dizziness
To review whether you or a loved one may be entitled to financial compensation as a result of the manufacturers’ apparent decision to place their desire for profits before the safety of women using the birth control products, request a free consultation and claim evaluation.
Steps To A Pseudotumor Cerebri Lawsuit
Pseudotumor cerebri (PTC) or idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) is typically diagnosed after an MRI, CT Scan and/or lumbar puncture to rule out other causes of vision problems from the pressure on the brain.
Have You Been Diagnosed with Pseudotumor Cerebri or Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension?
To begin the process of finding out whether you or a family member may have a case for injuries caused by Mirena IUD or Depo-Provera shot, call our pseudotumor cerebri lawyers toll free at 1-800-522-0102 or complete the information form on this page.
A member of our law firm will contact you to review the circumstances surrounding your case and evaluate whether we can establish a connection between the diagnosis of PTC/IIH and Mirena or Depo-Provera.
Requesting a consultation and claim review does not form an attorney-client relationship, and there is no obligation to pursue a lawsuit after having your potential case evaluated. The request simply begins the review process to determine whether you or a family member may be entitled to compensation.
Often a determination is made during your initial telephone interview. If we believe you may be entitled to compensation, it is your decision whether you wish to move forward with the investigation of your case.
Sometimes it is necessary that we review the circumstances surrounding your claim in further detail with our experts and litigation committee before we can determine if we are able to pursue a claim. If that is the case, you will be contacted shortly with our final determination.
After we evaluate your potential Mirena or Depo-Provera case, it remains your decision whether to hire our pseudotumor cerebri law firm to move forward with a case on your behalf.
If you decide to move forward with a case, there are no out-of-pocket costs or expenses associated with hiring our lawyers. All cases are handled on a contingency fee basis, which means that we only receive an attorney fee or reimbursement of expenses if a recovery is obtained in your case.
Contingency fees allow you to obtain the best and most experienced representation with no out of pocket expenses, and there are no fees unless you win.
