New York, New York (PRWEB) November 03, 2014
Mirena IUD lawsuits (http://www.mirenalawsuit2014.com/) continue to mount in the multicounty litigation now underway in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to a new Case List issued by the Court on October 27th, 1,228 Mirena lawsuits are now pending in the proceeding. That represents an increase of 135 filings since September, when the Court reported that 1,093 cases were pending. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297)
“Our Firm regularly hears from women who allegedly suffered serious Mirena complications due to spontaneous migration of the device. We are not at all surprised that the litigation in New Jersey 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 actively filing Mirena lawsuits in the New Jersey litigation, and 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.
Mirena IUD Litigation
First launched in the U.S. in 2000, the Mirena IUD is a long-acting method of birth control that is indicated for contraception and as a treatment for women with heavy menstrual periods who wish to use an IUD as their primary method of birth control. In 2009, the FDA issued a Warning Letter to Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals after finding that one of the company’s Mirena promotions made misleading claims about the safety and efficacy of the IUD.
According to court documents, all of the Mirena lawsuits pending in New Jersey allege spontaneous migration of the IUD caused uterine perforations, scarring, adhesions, infections, infertility, and other serious complications. Among other things, these claims 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. The claims point out that the Mirena label only cautions that migration might occur if the uterus is perforated when the IUD is being implanted. Finally, the lawsuits allege that Bayer has a history of downplaying the risks associated with Mirena, and of overstating its purported benefits.
In addition to the Mirena claims pending in New Jersey Superior Court, court records indicate that at least 1,042 lawsuits that put forth similar allegations have been filed in a multidistrict litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York.
Alleged victims of serious Mirena complications associated with spontaneous IUD migration may be eligible to pursue a claim against Bayer.
