NuvaRing Legal Issues

Have you or a loved one been injured by the product NuvaRing? A skilled attorney can help you. Currently there are a number of lawsuits that allege that the makers of NuvaRing didn't adequately warn the public of the potentially dangerous effects of NuvaRing. If you have been injured by the product NuvaRing, you should discuss your options with a Bluefield Nuvaring attorney.

The Negative Side Effects of the Product NuvaRing

NuvaRing is a type of birth control that is inserted into the body, as opposed to taking it orally. The product NuvaRing may have some potentially negative side effects, including: blood clots, strokes, heart attacks, heart disease and high blood pressure, cancer, gallbladder disease, and inflammation of the pancreas. If you have experienced these side effects, or any other side effect, from using the product NuvaRing, you should contact an attorney today.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Use the consultation as a means of gaining a better understanding of your legal situation.
  • Ask the attorney how many cases similar to yours he/she has handled. An attorney's experience and knowledge can speak to their expertise (or lack of) in addressing your situation.
  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

Types of legal fees:

Bill by the hour: Many attorneys bill by the hour. How much an attorney bills you per hour will vary based on a number of factors. For instance, an attorney's hourly fee may fluctuate based on whether that hour is spent representing you in court or doing research on your case. Attorneys in one practice area may bill you more than attorneys in a different practice area.

Contingent fee: Some lawyers will accept payment via contingent fee. In this arrangement, the lawyer receives a percentage of the total monetary recovery if you win your lawsuit. In sum, the lawyer only gets paid if you win. Contingent fee agreements are limited to specific practice areas in civil law.

Flat fee: For "routine" legal work where the attorney generally knows the amount of time and resources necessary to complete the task, he/she may be willing to bill you a flat fee for services performed.
