Ortho Evra, commonly called the birth control patch, is intended to prevent pregnancy. The patch increases the level of estrogen that may cause adverse side effects, including pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, stroke, heart attack and death. Users claim the manufacturer did not adequately warn about the side effects.
If you used Ortho Erva and experienced any of the side effects, you should immediately contact a Powell lawyer experienced in litigating these cases. The lawyer can evaluate your situation, determine if you have a case and potentially sue the manufacture for damages.
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.
In general, how much an attorney costs will often depend on these four factors: billing method and pricing structure, type of legal work performed, law firm prestige, and attorney experience. Depending on the legal issue you are facing, an attorney may bill you by the hour, settle on a flat fee, or enter into a contingency fee agreement. The type of legal work you need help with will also play a role in cost incurred.
