Hundreds of Mirena IUD lawsuits (http://www.drugbot.com/mirena-iud/lawsuit/) continue to move forward in a multicounty litigation underway in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. Court records indicate that a new Case Management Order was filed in the proceeding on August 5th that, among other things, establishes protocols for the filing of certain Defense Motions. The Order also establishes dates for additional Case Management Conferences through February 2015. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297)
“Our Firm is representing numerous clients who have Mirena lawsuits pending in this litigation. We are pleased to see these cases moving forward,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free Mirena lawsuit evaluations to women who were seriously harmed, allegedly due to spontaneous migration of the IUD.
Mirena IUD Lawsuits
Court records indicate that more than 900 claims are pending in Bergen County Superior Court, all of which allege spontaneous migration of IUD caused users to suffer serious Mirena complications, including uterine perforations, organ damage, scarring and infertility. The complaints further allege that Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals failed to warn that spontaneous IUD migration could occur with Mirena.
In addition to the cases pending in New Jersey, court documents show that at least 612 additional Mirena lawsuits involving similar allegations have been filed in a federal multicounty litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York. (In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434)
The Mirena IUD is a long-acting method of birth control that was first approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in 2000. In 2009, its approved uses were expanded to include the treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding in women who wish to use an IUD for birth control. In December 2009, the FDA also issued a warning letter to Bayer after finding that one of its Mirena promotions exaggerated the IUD’s benefits and understated its potentially serious side effects.
Women who allegedly suffered serious Mirena complications related to spontaneous migration of the IUD may be entitled to compensation for medical bills and other injury-related damages.
