Ferring Pharmeceuticals offered women reimbursement for money spent on Bravelle® after the drug’s recall in October 2015. However, this reimbursement does not include compensation to women for the costs associated with their IVF treatments. As a result, lawsuits are currently being filed by women against Ferring for the costs of their failed treatments, specifically costs that exceed the minimum reimbursement offered to patients affected by the Bravelle® recall.
Basis for a Claim
There are certain circumstances that might provide the basis for a lawsuit, supported by the fact that Bravelle’s® manufacturer issued a recall of the medication after discovering an ineffective lot has been issued between 2014 and 2015.
Each case is different and each patient is distinct. An expert attorney with a thorough understanding of the law as well as the facts regarding Bravelle®, their manufacturer, and the complications that may arise can help you evaluate the unique circumstances of your case, determine your options, and advise you on how to proceed.
If you do have grounds for a lawsuit, it doesn’t mean those responsible for your suffering will simply write you a check. The manufacturers and physicians have deep pockets, lawyers, and insurance companies on their side. Confronting them requires skill and fortitude — you need an advocate who will fight for the just compensation to which you are legally entitled.
Some of the legal grounds on which you might have a case against a manufacturer include:
- Breach of Warranty
- Fraudulent misrepresentation: the manufacturer misrepresented the drug’s risks and benefits.
Statute of Limitations
As with any product liability or personal injury litigation, there are strict statutes of limitation. You only have a limited amount of time to file a suit once your adverse symptoms begin. These limitations vary by state and jurisdiction.
It is therefore imperative that you contact an attorney as soon as possible if you feel you were affected the Bravelle® recall.
