Chicago, IL: When the manufacturers of the Bravelle infertility drug temporarily recalled, and stopped selling the product a little more than a year ago over lack of potency, attorneys and legal professionals at the time predicted that plaintiffs would have a bit more of a challenging time bringing a Bravelle lawsuit given that there was no primary safety issue involved. To that end, any Bravelle Infertility Drug lawsuit brought since then has focused on the lack of quality and potency, rather than safety claims.Read [ Bravelle Infertility Class Action Lawsuit Going Forward on Negligence Claims ]

Victoria, BC: It’s hard enough starting off in life lining up a career, a car, a house, paying off student debt and perhaps getting some investments going, not to mention planning a family. The latter could include starting a college fund, getting a baby’s room together, along with all the inherent costs associated with welcoming a new member of the family. For most, there is no cost associated with becoming pregnant. However for those with fertility issues, use of fertility drugs such as Bravelle often means the difference between successful conception, and being left childless. It would therefore come as no shock that those having paid handsomely for Bravelle fertility treatment have been left reeling from the Bravelle Recall.Read [ One Couple’s Heartbreaking Bravelle Recall Story ]

New York, NY: For some couples, Bravelle was their last chance at having a baby. The fertility drug, which is now the focus of lawsuits, offered hope to those who dream of having a baby but needed to undergo in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment to make their dream a reality. IVF treatment isn't cheap, and some couples find they can only afford one round of treatment. So they were likely shocked to find out that the drug they pinned their last hopes on might not have been nearly as effective as they believed.Read [ Lawsuits Filed Over Weak Fertility Drug ]
