Can you sue Depo-provera for blood clots?
4 attorney answers
Only a tiny handful of lawyers handle this drug, so best to Google Depo-Provera lawyer to find a list of them.
There have been lawsuits for Depo-Prevera related to osteoporosis and breast cancer, but I'm not aware of any related solely to blood clots (this doesn't mean there aren't any).
You can contact a law firm that handles these types of cases and see if you have a viable case.
I am sorry to read of your medical troubles. Depo Provera is a progesterone based injectable contraceptive that should not be given to women with a known history of clotting. However, absent that, it is considered a better alternative to the more common estrogen based contraceptives that run a higher risk for causing clot formation. Thus, I think it unlikely that Depo prover can be implicated in such a manner. However, your selection as a patient by the provider has to be reviewed very carefully to rule out possible negligence. Consult a CO medical malpractice attorney for further clarity.
best of luck,
