Estimated Essure Settlements 2021 Per Person
If you’re considering a lawsuit against Bayer over the Essure contraceptive, you are probably wondering how much money people get for their settlements.
We can’t tell you exactly what your settlement might be, but we can tell you that approximately 18,000 women have filed lawsuits against Bayer claiming Essure caused serious harm. In October 2019, a judge in California was assigned to coordinate cases involving the birth control device. That judge consolidated these cases under one jurisdiction and appointed new attorneys to manage the lawsuits.
And in 2020, Johnson & Johnson reached an agreement with thousands of plaintiffs who had their own claims against the company’s talcum powder products. The settlement amount? $1 billion! But there’s more to this story than just big numbers; let’s dig deeper into it all…
Essure is a permanent birth control device that consists of tiny inserts placed into the fallopian tubes. The device was originally approved in 2002 by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Essure settlements were created to compensate women who were injured due to Essure’s complications or adverse side effects.

Who is eligible for an Essure settlement?
The terms of your settlement will depend on whether or not you received an Essure permanent birth control procedure from any provider state-side between 2002 and 2018. If so, then it’s likely that you are eligible for compensation from Bayer HealthCare Limited Partnership (“Bayer”).
Future Essure Lawsuits
As of 2019, there are no new Essure lawsuits. There have been a few lawsuits filed, but they were dismissed due to the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations is when an individual has a certain period of time after an incident occurs in which they can file a lawsuit against someone else.
Essure lawsuits are still ongoing as more women come forward who want to be compensated for their pain and suffering caused by this device. There are currently thousands of cases pending with Bayer Pharmaceuticals, which manufactures Essure and sells it through their subsidiary company Advanced Healthcare Products Incorporated (AHP).
