New York, New York (PRWEB) February 01, 2015
Mirena lawsuits (http://www.mirenalawsuit2014.com/) continue to be filed in the multicounty litigation underway in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court, Bernstein Liebhard LLP report. According to a Case List issued by the Court on January 28th, 1,682 claims are now pending in the proceeding. Court records indicate that this represents an increase of 58 filings since the Court issued its last update on January 13th, when 1,624 Mirena IUD lawsuits were reported.

“Our Firm is representing numerous women in this litigation who allegedly experience serious Mirena complications related to spontaneous IUD migration, and we continue to hear from others who claim to have suffered similar harm. We are not surprised that the litigation continues to grow 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 and confidential case evaluations to women who allegedly sustained serious complications of the IUD.
Court documents indicate that all of the Mirena lawsuits included in the New Jersey litigation allege that spontaneous IUD migration can result in uterine perforations, organ damage, infertility, and other serious injuries that can permanently impact a woman’s health and quality of life. Plaintiffs also assert that Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals has a long history of overstating the benefits purportedly associated with IUD, and of downplaying its association with potentially serious Mirena complications. 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.
The cases pending in New Jersey also claim that Bayer failed to warn Mirena users off its potential to become dislodged from its proper position in the uterus following correct insertion by a healthcare provider. They point out that the labeling for the IUD only cautions that it may migrate if the uterus is perforated upon insertion.
In addition to the Mirena lawsuits that have been filed in Bergen County, court records indicate that at least 1,160 claims that put forth similar allegations are pending in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York. (In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434)
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.
