ST. LOUIS — Female consumers are suing a pharmaceutical company, alleging false advertisement and concealment.
Alecia Moore, Marta Lorena Garcia Borja, Viridiana Garcia Moreno, et al. filed a complaint on Dec. 19 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Bayer Corp., Bayer Healthcare LLC, Bayer Essure Inc., Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals Inc., and Bayer A.G., alleging that the defendants engaged in substantial widespread and systematic false, misleading and illegal promotional activities to encourage physicians and patients to use the Essure device.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that the Essure birth control option exposed women to serious dangers, health risks and complications that were concealed from the public.
The plaintiffs hold Bayer responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to warn or alert physicians and patients of the increased risks and significant dangers resulting from being implanted with the Essure device, and downplayed or concealed to physicians and patients the dangerous effects of Essure.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury; and seek judgment for damages, costs of the proceedings, and for such other and further relief as the court deems just and proper. They are represented by Eric D. Holland and Seth R. Crompton of Holland Law Firm in St. Louis; and Lewis O. Unglesby, Lance C. Unglesby and Adrian M. Simm Jr. of Unglesby + Williams in New Orleans.
