Young lady with hands on head

If you’re eligible to file against Bayer for an Essure lawsuit claim, then the last thing you want to be doing is facing it alone and unprepared. Not only do you have the side effects of your Essure device to deal with, but to try and deal with various different contacts and large profile lawyers at the same time is more or less impossible to come out on top of.

If you’re going to win your deserved amount on compensation, you’re going to have to be prepared and we’d definitely advise that you hire an expert attorney. This post will outline our recommended tips on how to prepare for Essure lawsuit claims.

We’ll cover:

  • Eligibility
  • Medical Assistance
  • Hire an Attorney
  • Gather the Relevant Information


Quite simply, you need to check whether your situation is eligible for a lawsuit. One way in which you can do this is check for side effects symptoms that you have experienced since having the procedure to fit your coils. You can read more about the different side effects and risks that Essure poses here.

Obviously, the more severe the injury you’ve sustained, the more likely it is that your case is going to be eligible for a lawsuit and compensation. But, that’s not to say that short-term side effects aren’t as serious and don’t warrant a pay out.

Once you’ve checked the side effects symptoms, we recommend that you contact an attorney for expert advice on the likelihood of your claim standing up in court. Contact us for a consultation today and our expert team will assess the situation and inform you whether or not that you have a case.

Medical Assistance

If you haven’t had your side effects checked over and have only found out about it through research of your claim eligibility, we recommend that you seek out medical assistance before the case is heard. That way, you’ll know the full extent of the injuries which will strengthen the weight of your argument. Not only this, but you’ll not be risking getting further complications by ignoring the aches and pains.

The side effects could also be an indicator of potential Essure migration. This is a serious condition that can have life-changing impact on anybody involved. There are various symptoms to be aware of, so if you spot any any, be sure to seek medical advice immediately.

Gather the Relevant Information

By gathering all the relevant information, you leave yourself in the best position to earn the compensation figure that you truly deserve. As a result, you should keep note of the following:

  • How much physical and mental damage you’ve endured.
  • Whether you needed corrective surgery and rehabilitation and if so, how much.
  • How much time off work you’ve needed due to Essure and how much income you’ve lost as a result.
  • How much time off work you may need to take in the future due to Essure and how much income you’ll lose.
  • How your everyday life will be affected in the future.

Your attorney will look at all this information gathered and calculate how much compensation you could be owed. The more information that you gather, the better chance of success your case will have.

Hire an Attorney

The last thing you want to do is go into an Essure lawsuit without professional representation. Bayer, Essure’s manufacturer, will hire top lawyers who are used to getting big businesses out of sticky situations.

They’ll know every loophole and can be quite intimidating to somebody representing themselves, so it’s better to have an attorney on your side who will advise you what to say and how to act to not land yourself in hot water and put your case in jeopardy.

But, how do you know who the right attorney is and where to find them? Well, there are various ways that you can successfully scope out the right attorney for you:

  • What’s their track record?
  • Do they have the finances and staff to take you on?
  • What’s their fee structure?
  • Are the majority of their cases referrals from other lawyers?
