The progress in this MDL is good for current plaintiffs and those looking to file lawsuits alleging that the hormonal birth control device’s adverse side effects have harmed them.
(PRWEB) August 16, 2013
Mirena IUD lawsuits consolidated in federal court in New York are progressing. A status conference was scheduled for Aug. 14 with several more in subsequent weeks, during which the parties would discuss procedures to ensure cases could potentially go to trial, according to court documents. The Rottenstein Law Group's Mirena lawyers operate a website with more information about Mirena IUD lawsuits and side effects.
There are more than 100 Mirena lawsuits pending in a federal court consolidation called a “multidistrict litigation,” according to court documents (In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL-2434, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York).
“The progress in this MDL is good for current plaintiffs and those looking to file lawsuits alleging that the hormonal birth control device’s adverse side effects have harmed them,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP.
As of June 2013, the U.S Food and Drug Administration received more than 70,000 adverse event reports regarding the Mirena since the IUD’s 2000 debut, according to court documents. The complaints centered on a few potential side effects, including device migration and uterine perforation, both of which could involve the IUD becoming embedded elsewhere.
The Rottenstein Law Group LLP encourages those with the Mirena IUD to download a free informational brochure about the device and implantees’ eligibility to file.
