More than 400 Mirena 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 a multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to a Scheduling Order issued on February 26, 2014, the Court has revised all deadlines pertaining to the proceeding’s bellwether trials by 60 days. As such, the selection of specific Mirena IUD lawsuits for those trials will likely not be completed before June of 2014. (In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434)

Mirena IUD Lawsuits

According to court documents, at least 408 claims have been filed in the Southern District of New York on behalf of women who allegedly suffered uterine perforations and other Mirena side effects following spontaneous migration of the IUD. Among other things, plaintiffs in these Mirena lawsuits claim that Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals failed to warn that spontaneous migration was a possibility, and instead only warned that migration of the IUD could occur if the uterus was perforated during insertion of the device. The lawsuits also allege that Bayer has a history of downplaying serious Mirena complications and overstating the benefits purportedly associated with its use.

In addition to the claims pending in the Southern District of New York, court documents indicate that more than 630 Mirena lawsuits that involve similar allegations are pending in a multicounty litigation underway in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court. Bernstein Liebhard LLP is actively filing claims in this proceeding. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297)

The Mirena IUD, which is now approved as a method of contraception and as a treatment for heavy menstrual bleeding for women who wish to use an IUD as their primary method of contraception, has been sold in the U.S. since 2000. In 2009, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) cited Bayer for making misleading statements about the benefits and risks of the IUD in a social media campaign used to promote Mirena.

Women who allegedly experienced serious side effects associated with the spontaneous migration of a Mirena IUD may be entitled to compensation from Bayer.
