NuvaRing is a popular form of birth control used by women in America. Its selling point was that it wasn’t a pill to be taken monthly, it was a once-a-month contraceptive ring. It was originally produced by a Dutch company called Organon which was bought out by Merck & Co, Inc in 2008. Organon claims that the ring was a safe and effective form of birth control. There has been a reported 74% increase in blood clots after using NuvaRing. Other women reported having heart attacks and strokes. In a number of cases, the result of taking NuvaRing was death.
Lawsuits began being filed in 2008 and by 2014 more than 3800 claims were made against Merck & Co., Inc for NuvaRing alone.

NuvaRing Recall Lawsuit – Settlement News (Updated for 2016)
Lawsuits against Merck started up in 2008. In 2009, lawyers moved to transfer most NuvaRing cases to the US District Court in Missouri. Over the next five years, more than 1700 cases were filed with more than 2000 more cases ready to be filed. Most were filed in the Missouri courts, though more than 200 were filed in NJ. Plaintiffs filed NuvaRing lawsuits because of Merck/Organon:
- did not disclose the known safety hazards of the product
- did not tell clients of the increased risk from the ingredients in NuvaRing
- did not test the drug properly
deceived the public with their marketing
- were negligent with their product
- committed breach of warranty and implied warranty.
According to Bloomberg and Lexis Nexis, in February 2011 Merck agreed to settle the NuvaRing claims for $100M. That seems like a lot until you realize Organon/Merck brings in almost $42.2 billion in sales a year. Organon went through a series of mergers with other companies to avoid paying plaintiffs for the injuries. This is why, even though Organon made the drug, Merck was the company that settled the lawsuit.
HOW MUCH MONEY IS MY NUVARING CASE WORTH? WHEN DOES IT SETTLE?
In 2014, Merck agreed to settle about 3800 NuvaRing cases for $100 million before the cases went to court. This is an average of over $26,000 a case. Because some cases without injuries could get thrown out, it’s possible your case will get more than this. If your injuries were very severe, your case could be worth much more.
Also, some plaintiffs chose not to accept their piece of the settlement agreement and are going to continue fighting Merck in court. These cases could earn more than the others and Nova Legal Funding is able to consider these cases for funding too.
Right now Merck and the NuvaRing attorneys are going through the 3800 cases to find out the injuries of each plaintiff. Then they will figure out how much each plaintiff will get. Once this is done, settlements should be sent out quickly. The NuvaRing resolution program won’t give a deadline, but payments could be coming very soon since the case was settled almost three years ago.
