The Paragard IUD is a widely used contraceptive device implanted in thousands of women. Unfortunately, the Paragard has certain design flaws making it highly prone to fracture during removal. Women who suffered serious injuries due to their Paragard IUD fracturing during removal are pursuing legal action against the device manufacturer and may be entitled to financial compensation.


April 11, 2024: A recent investigative report from Spotlight on America has uncovered that the FDA expressed concerns to CooperSurgical, the maker of the Paragard IUD, about the potential for the device to break during removal. This warning was issued following an FDA inspection of one of CooperSurgical’s Paragard IUD manufacturing facilities. Despite these concerns raised by the FDA, CooperSurgical appears to have taken no action in response to this warning.

In a lawsuit filed in the Western District of Kentucky, two plaintiffs have initiated a class action against Haier US Appliance Solutions, Inc., doing business as GE Appliances.

The complaint alleges that GE Appliances sold refrigerators with a significant compressor defect. This defect, according to the plaintiffs, causes the refrigerators to fail at cooling, leading to spoiled food and beverages and rendering the appliances unusable for their intended purpose. This issue reportedly manifests shortly after purchase and well before the expected lifespan of the appliances.

If you are a possible plaintiff, you may have a compensation claim.  You should keep detailed records of your purchase, including receipts, warranty information, and any communications with the company (emails, calls, service requests). Also, document the issues you’ve experienced with the product, including any attempts to have it repaired, costs incurred, and the impact of the defect.

Class action lawsuits are legal proceedings that allow many individuals to collectively bring a claim to court, typically against a corporation or large entity, for similar grievances. These cases can end in significant settlements or judgments, where the defendant agrees to pay compensation. However, not all awarded funds reach the claimants; a portion remains unclaimed. The handling of this unclaimed money varies, but it generally follows a few established paths.

Cy Pres Awards

One common method of dealing with unclaimed class action funds is through cy pres awards. Cy pres, a French term meaning “as close as possible,” involves distributing the leftover settlement funds to third-party charities or nonprofit organizations that indirectly benefit the class members or support issues related to the lawsuit’s nature. For instance, if the case involved privacy violations by a tech company, the unclaimed funds might go to nonprofits focusing on privacy rights or digital literacy.

A new class action lawsuit against Whirlpool Corporation addresses refrigerators alleged to have defective wiring that compromises the appliance’s functionality and safety.

If you bought a Whirlpool refrigerator, you likely did because the company has an outstanding reputation of making quality products. But, according to the plaintiffs, the wires, designed to flex with the opening and closing of the refrigerator doors, are prone to fraying or breaking prematurely due to the use of substandard materials.

This defect, often manifesting within a few years of purchase, significantly hinders the refrigerator’s performance by disabling critical features such as ice makers and water dispensers—key selling points emphasized in Whirlpool’s marketing materials. Furthermore, the plaintiffs highlight an alarming safety concern: the risk of electrocution or fire stemming from exposed, live wires, a danger exacerbated by the presence of water and known to refrigerator manufacturers like Whirlpool.

Lenovo was accused of suggesting ineffective repair methods or failing to address the core issue causing the defect.

The lawsuit claims Lenovo knew about this defect but continued to market and sell these laptops, highlighting their high-resolution displays and versatile screen positions as major selling points.

About the Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits

These surgeries are used to treat conditions like pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence, which stem from weakened pelvic muscles causing organs like the uterus, bladder, or rectum to descend into the vaginal area. The goal of surgical intervention with vaginal mesh is to repair and bolster these weakened muscles.
