Nexplanon is a birth control implant that is advertised as being over 99 percent effective. It is implanted in the arm, just underneath the skin.
While the implant is quite effective and does not cause serious side effects in most users, unfortunately, some users have experienced significant side effects. For example, numerous lawsuits have been filed alleging that Nexplanon has caused blood clots that have led to serious medical problems like heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, or deep vein thrombosis.
If you have developed a blood clot after receiving a Nexplanon implant, you may be wondering what the average Nexplanon settlement is. This article will go into detail about what the average Nexplanon settlement is.
Each Nexplanon case is different, and the size of any Nexplanon settlement will depend on the circumstances in each individual case. Thus, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question.
The size of any settlement in personal injury cases such as Nexplanon cases depends on the losses suffered by the plaintiff. For example, someone who suffered a heart attack after their Nexplanon implant caused a blood clot would suffer financial losses in the form of medical bills since they would require medical treatment after suffering a heart attack.
Financial payments which compensate for losses in personal injury cases are known as damages. Damages can be recovered for many things in a Nexplanon lawsuit, such as:
• Medical bills
• Pain and suffering
• Lost wages
• Loss of earning capacity
• Emotional distress
In other words, the size of any Nexplanon settlement will depend on how many medical bills a plaintiff incurs, how large they are, how much pain and suffering their injury caused them, whether they missed time from work due to their injury, whether their injury caused them to be unable to work long-term, how much emotional distress their injury caused them, and more.
Birth control implants such as Nexplanon that are placed under the skin were found to be associated with a 40 percent increase in the risk of developing a blood clot in the veins, according to a 2012 study.
A 2015 Nexplanon label update warned that etonogestrel implants such as Nexplanon have been linked with potentially fatal blood clotting events such as heart attack, stroke, deep vein thrombosis, and pulmonary embolism.
The use of birth control implants like Nexplanon has been linked with blood clots. Blood clots can block the coronary artery, causing a potentially fatal heart attack.
Birth control implants such as Nexplanon have been linked with blood clotting events. Blood clots that break loose and end up in the brain can cause strokes, which can be fatal.
Implantable birth control devices such as Nexplanon have been linked with an increased risk of developing blood clots. Blood clots can end up in the pulmonary arteries in the lungs, causing a pulmonary embolism, which can be fatal.
Nexplanon and other birth control implants have been linked with a higher risk of blood clot development. Blood clots can form in veins that are deep inside the human body, typically in the legs. These clots are known as deep vein thrombosis. These clots can break free and end up in the heart, lungs, or brain, where they can cause potentially fatal complications.
A settlement is when a plaintiff and a defendant agree out of court on a sum of money that the defendant will pay the plaintiff. Settlements can occur before or after a lawsuit is filed.
Defendants are often unwilling to pay a settlement until after a lawsuit is filed. When settlements occur after a lawsuit is filed, settlements are reached before a court verdict is reached.
Numerous lawsuits seek to recover damages based on strict liability. They allege that Nexplanon is a defective product because it can cause blood clots even when manufactured and implanted properly.
