Bayer Indicates Progress in Essure Settlement Talks

Victims of Essure birth control implant injuries may soon get the compensation they deserve. Manufacturer Bayer has indicated it is making progress in settlement talks with plaintiffs’ lawyers, and that it has set aside $1.47 billion for potential settlements involving approximately 32,000 lawsuits pending around the country.

Essure is a form of permanent birth control that Bayer sold from 2002 through 2018, after which the company stopped distributing the product in the U.S. because of restrictions implemented by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Bayer Considering Settlements, but Maintains Essure is Safe

As of July 24, 2020, Bayer faced roughly 32,000 lawsuits filed by Essure users claiming to have suffered from serious injuries caused by the birth control device, including hysterectomy, pain, bleeding, perforation, unwanted pregnancy, and more. The plaintiffs seek both compensatory and punitive damages.

Bayer recently indicated in its second-quarter results announcement that it had seen progress in recent settlement talks: “Recently discussions on potential settlements have intensified which made good progress in recent weeks.” The company added that it continues to “support the safety and efficacy of the Essure device and are prepared to vigorously defend it in litigation.”
