New York, New York (PRWEB) January 01, 2014
Hundreds of Mirena lawsuits (http://www.mirenalawsuithub.com/ ) filed in a multicounty litigation underway in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court are continuing to move forward, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According court documents, a Revised Confidentiality and Protective Order was entered on December 23, 2013 that governs documents and other materials produced during discovery. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297)
“We are representing a number of women in Mirena IUD lawsuits, and are monitoring this proceeding very carefully. Our Firm looks forward to additional progress in the new year,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices, including numerous women who have allegedly suffered Mirena complications. The Firm is currently offering free Mirena IUD lawsuit evaluations to women who may have suffered uterine perforations, infections, scarring, organ damage or other injuries allegedly associated with spontaneous migration of the device.
Mirena IUD Lawsuits
According to court documents, 300 Mirena lawsuits have been filed in New Jersey by women who allegedly suffered uterine perforations, infertility, and organ damage, when the IUD spontaneously migrated from its proper position in the uterus, despite having been correctly inserted by a healthcare provider. Plaintiffs further allege that Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals failed to provide adequate warnings regarding the risks associated with Mirena, and downplayed its serious side effects.
Court documents further indicate that 296 claims alleging similar Mirena complications have also been filed in a federal proceeding established in U. S. District Court, Southern District of New York. (In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434.)
According to a report that aired on 7 Action News this past summer, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has received more than 70,000 complaints involving Mirena, including thousands that detail cases of device dislocation and uterine perforation, since the device came on the market in 2000.* In December 2009, the agency 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.
Women who have allegedly experienced serious Mirena complications related to spontaneous migration of the IUD may be entitled to financial compensation for their injury-related damages.
