Please note that the lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are no longer taking on new cases involving Ortho Evra. The content on this page is provided for informational purposes only.
Ortho Evra is a newer form of birth control which delivers the contraceptive through a patch placed on the skin. Research has shown that dangerous amounts of estrogen may be delivered by the patch which could increase the risk of serious and potentially fatal injuries which the manufacturer failed to warn about.
Ortho Evra lawsuits were pursued by the attorneys at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. for side effects of the birth control patch that resulted in the following injuries:
The FDA approved Ortho Evra in 2001 as the first transdermal contraceptive patch, and today it remains the only birth control patch on the market. Ortho-McNeil Pharmaceutical (a division of Johnson & Johnson) has been actively marketing and selling the Ortho Evra patch, despite knowledge that it carried an increased risk of blood clots and other complications when compared with the traditional birth control pill.
