New York, NY (PRWEB) August 20, 2014
Hundreds of Mirena IUD lawsuits (http://www.themirenalawsuitcenter.com/) filed on behalf of women who were allegedly injured due to spontaneous migration of the IUD continue to move forward in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to a Case Management Order issued on August 15, 2014, the Court has established procedures regarding the production of sales representative custodial files for Mirena lawsuits that are part of the proceeding’s initial disposition pool. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297)
“Our Firm is representing numerous women who allegedly suffered serious Mirena complications due to spontaneous IUD migration whose cases are pending in this litigation. We are pleased with its continuing progress,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free case evaluations to women who were allegedly harmed after their Mirena IUD spontaneously migrated from its proper position in the uterus.
Mirena IUD Lawsuits
Court documents indicate that at least 968 Mirena IUD lawsuits have been filed on behalf of women who were allegedly injured by the contraceptive device. All of the complaints allege that recipients of the IUD experienced painful and debilitating injuries, including infertility, organ damage, and uterine perforations, as a result of spontaneous device migration. Among other things, the lawsuits allege that Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals downplayed the risk of serious Mirena complications, and failed to warn that the IUD could migrate from its proper position in the uterus, even following correct insertion by a healthcare provider.
In addition to the cases pending in New Jersey, court records show that hundreds of additional Mirena IUD lawsuits involving similar allegations have been filed in a federal multidistrict 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 was brought to market in 2000 and is now approved as both a contraceptive and as a treatment for heavy menstrual bleeding in women who wish to use an IUD for contraception. Last August, an investigation conducted by 7 Action News in Detroit found that since its approval, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) received more than 70,000 complaints involving Mirena.* In December 2009, the agency issued a Warning Letter to Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals after finding that one of the company’s Mirena promotions made misleading claims about the safety and efficacy of the IUD.
Alleged victims of Mirena complications related to spontaneous IUD migration may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
