It is not surprising at all that Mirena lawsuits continue to be filed at this rate.
New York, New York (PRWEB) September 12, 2014
Mirena IUD lawsuit (http://www.injurybeacon.com/mirena-iud/lawsuit/) filings continue to mount in a multicounty litigation now underway in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to an updated Case List issued by the Court on September 10, 2014, 1,075 claims are now pending in the proceeding. That represents an increase of more than 100 filings since August, when the Court reported that there were 968 claims pending in the litigation. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297)
“Our Firm is representing numerous women in this litigation, and we continue to hear from others who allegedly suffered serious complications due to spontaneous migration of the IUD. It is not surprising at all that Mirena lawsuits continue to be filed at this rate,” 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.
According to court documents, all of the claims filed in Bergen County allege that recipients of the IUD experienced painful and debilitating Mirena complications, including infertility, organ damage, and uterine perforations, as a result of spontaneous device migration. Among other things, the lawsuits allege that Bayer downplayed the risk of serious injury, and failed to warn that the IUD could migrate from its proper position in the uterus, 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 approved as a long-acting birth control method by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in 2000. In 2009, its approved uses were expanded to include the prevention of heavy menstrual bleeding in women who wish to use an IUD as their primary method of contraception. That same year, the FDA issued a Warning Letter to Bayer after finding that one of the company’s Mirena promotions made misleading claims about the safety and efficacy of the IUD.
Alleged victims of serious Mirena complications related to spontaneous device migration may be entitled to pursue their own claim against Bayer.
