ST. LOUIS – A 35-year-old St. Louis County woman alleges she was damaged by the use of a birth control device.
Linnie Dean filed a complaint on March 20 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Bayer Corp., et al. alleging negligence and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that as a result of being implanted with defendants' Essure, a permanent birth control medical device, in November 2009, she underwent hysterectomy in October 2013.
The plaintiff holds Bayer Corp., et al. responsible because the defendants allegedly fraudulently and intentionally concealed and suppressed material and important health and safety product risk information from the Food and Drug Administration regarding the Essure device.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages. She is represented by Eric D. Holland and Seth R. Crompton of Holland Law Firm in St. Louis.
