NuvaRing Wrongful Death Cases Reviewed Nationwide

Woman throughout the United States may face an increased risk of serious and potentially fatal health problems from side effects of NuvaRing, a birth control ring that has been linked to a number of deaths caused by stroke, heart attack, pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis and other blood clot injuries.

Please note that the lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are no longer taking on new cases involving NuvaRing. The content on this page is provided for informational purposes only.

As a result of the drug maker’s failure to adequately research the product or warn about the risk of health complications, compensation may be available for individuals and families throughout the United States. To review a potential case, request a free consultation and claim evaluation.


NuvaRing (ethinyl estradiol and etonogestrel) is a popular birth control device that is inserted into the vagina to provide month-long protection against unwanted pregnancy. The small ring releases a combination of ethinyl estradiol and etonogestrel as a “convenient” alternative to oral birth control pills.

While the manufacturers have suggested that the side effects of NuvaRing are similar to what women face with birth control pills, research has suggested that higher levels of estrogen may be provided by the device, causing women to face a potential increased blood clot risk with NuvaRing.

A number of NuvaRing deaths have been reported by otherwise healthy women who experienced blood clots that may not have occurred if they had used another form of birth control.

Lawsuits being pursued by our NuvaRing wrongful death lawyers for families throughout the United States allege that the manufacturer failed to provide adequate warnings for consumers or the medical community.

The drug makers also failed to conduct proper studies to better understand the potentially fatal effects of NuvaRing before they aggressively marketed the product as an alternative to established birth control pills.

In late 2011, an FDA study suggested that NuvaRing may increase the risk of blood clots by 56% compared to some older birth control pills. In addition, according to post-marketing adverse event reports submitted through the FDA’s MedWatch Program, physicians and families have reported a number of cases where women died from NuvaRing.


The loss of a loved one, especially at an early age, can have a devastating impact on the surviving spouse, parents and any children. Wrongful death benefits may be available if the loss was caused by NuvaRing side effects, such as:

  • Blood Clots
  • Stroke or Heart Attack
  • Pulmonary Embolism
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis

The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. can investigate the circumstances surrounding a NuvaRing death for families throughout the United States who suspect that an injury may have been prevented if adequate and accurate warnings had been provided by the drug maker.

All cases were previously pursued under a contingency fee, which means that there are never any attorney fees unless a recovery is obtained. Every wrongful death claim does have a deadline, known as the statute of limitations, so it is important that families review any potential NuvaRing wrongful death suit as soon as possible.

NuvaRing cases are no longer being accepted.
