New York, NY (PRWEB) January 23, 2015
Mirena IUD lawsuits (http://www.mirenalawsuit2014.com/) filed on behalf of women who were allegedly injured due to spontaneous migration of the birth control implant continue to move forward in a multicounty litigation now underway in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to the Court’s calendar, the litigation’s next Case Management Conference will be convened on Tuesday, February 24, 2014. The Conference is scheduled to begin at 2:00 p.m. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297)
“Our Firm is representing numerous women who have filed Mirena lawsuits in Bergen County Superior Court, and we continue to hear from others who were allegedly injured due to spontaneous IUD migration. We are pleased to see these cases progressing, and look forward to next month’s conference,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices including Mirena. The Firm is currently offering free case evaluations to women who allege uterine perforations and other serious complications related to spontaneous migration of the Mirena IUD.
Court records indicate that the New Jersey Mirena litigation now includes more than 1,600 cases, all of which accuse Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals of failing to warn users of the IUD of its potential to become dislodged from its proper position in the uterus following correct insertion by a healthcare provider. In addition to the claims pending in New Jersey, hundreds of Mirena lawsuits that put forth similar allegations have been filed in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York. At least 1,160 complaints were pending in that proceeding as of January 15th. (In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434)
According to court documents, all of the lawsuits included in these litigations allege that spontaneous Mirena migration can result in uterine perforations, organ damage, infertility, and other serious Mirena complications that can permanently impact a woman’s health and quality of life. Plaintiffs also assert that Bayer has a long history of overstating the benefits purportedly associated with Mirena, and of downplaying its association with potentially serious side effects. Among other thing, the lawsuits cite a Warning Letter the company received from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in 2009 that took issue with Mirena promotional materials that the agency said were misleading because they exaggerated the IUD’s benefit and understated its risks.
Women who allegedly suffered serious Mirena complications following spontaneous migration of their IUD may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
