Compensation for Women Sterilized by Defective IUD

Attorneys Spinella & Associates represented numerous women who were rendered infertile by Copper-7 IUDs. Copper-7 IUDs were monofilament, polyethylene intrauterine devices rushed to market to replace the Dalkon Shield, which had been shown to promote pelvic inflammatory disease in women and often rendered them infertile. Spinella & Associates took on G.D. Searle & Company and their battery of lawyers and paralegals in successfully representing numerous women who had cases against G.D. Searle. In so doing, Spinella & Associates reviewed over 200,000 documents and 1,000 medical articles; they hired a large team of experts located all over the country to offer opinions relating to metallurgical qualities of the Copper-7, the microbiological and biochemical processes of infection and infertility, and the medical etiology. Additionally, Spinella & Associates hired established scientists to their own independent laboratory at the Connecticut Institute of Material Science at the University of Connecticut where actual testing of the growth and migration of human bacteria under laboratory conditions simulating the female body was conducted on the Copper-7 tailstring. The clients of Spinella & Associates—the scores of women whose ability to conceive had been destroyed by this product—were compensated through multiple substantial settlements. In addition, those lawsuits, and others like them, forced the manufacturer to withdraw this product from the market.
