We are representing numerous women who allegedly suffered serious Mirena complications due to spontaneous IUD migration.
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 10, 2014
Mirena IUD lawsuits (http://www.mirenalawsuit2014.com/) filed on behalf of women who were allegedly injured by the contraceptive device continue to move forward in courts throughout the U.S., Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court documents, a federal judge presiding over one such case in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California has ordered Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals to produce certain notes pertaining to sales calls the company’s representatives made to physicians to promote the IUD. In an Order dated October 31, 2014, U.S. Magistrate Judge Kandis A. Westmore found that the documents in question might support the Plaintiff’s claims that Bayer’s promotional materials for Mirena minimized the IUD’s risk warnings. While Bayer had sought to limit the Plaintiff’s access to notes that only concerned her treating physicians, the Order directs the company to produce all notes that were already subject to discovery in the related multidistrict litigation underway in New York federal court. (Baker v. Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals Inc., No. 13-490)
“We are representing numerous women who allegedly suffered serious Mirena complications due to spontaneous IUD migration. These lawsuits raise questions about Bayer’s promotional activities, including whether or not the company downplayed the risks associated with the device,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm continues to offer free case evaluations to alleged victims of uterine perforations, infections, damaged organs and other serious injuries associated with spontaneous migration of the IUD.
Court documents indicate that thousands of women are currently pursuing Mirena IUD lawsuits for uterine perforations, infertility and other injuries that were allegedly caused by spontaneous migration of the birth control implant. These include more than 1,200 cases that are currently pending in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court, where Bernstein Liebhard LLP is actively filing claims. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297) More than 1,000 additional lawsuits have been filed in a federal multidistrict litigation established in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York. (In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434)
According to court records, all of the Mirena lawsuits now pending in U.S. courts accuse Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals of failing to warn that the device might migrate even after being properly inserted into the uterus by a healthcare provider, and point out that the product’s label only cautions that migration might occur if the uterus is perforated when the IUD is being implanted. The lawsuits also site a 2009 warning letter Bayer received from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration for using promotional materials that overstated the benefits purportedly associated with Mirena, and that also downplayed the risk for serious complications.
Women who allegedly suffered serious injuries due to spontaneous Mirena migration may be entitled to take legal action against Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals.
