New York, New York (PRWEB) January 23, 2014
Hundreds of Mirena IUD lawsuits (http://www.themirenalawsuitcenter.com) pending in a multicounty litigation underway in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court continue to move forward, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to an Order dated January 14th, the Court has scheduled the proceeding’s next Case Management Conference for February 25, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. Counsel has been directed to submit a proposed agenda to the Court seven days prior to the conference. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297)
“Our Firm is actively filing Mirena lawsuits on behalf of women who allegedly suffered spontaneous migration of their IUD, resulting in uterine perforations and other serious Mirena side effects. We are pleased to see this proceeding moving forward,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free Mirena lawsuit reviews to women who may have suffered serious injuries allegedly associated with spontaneous migration of the device.
Court documents indicate that at least 488 Mirena IUD lawsuits are now pending in the proceeding underway in New Jersey. Plaintiffs in these lawsuits are alleged to have suffered a number of Mirena side effects, including uterine perforations, pain, scarring, infection, and infertility, following spontaneous migration of the IUD. Plaintiffs further allege that Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals failed to provide adequate warnings regarding the risk of spontaneous migration, and only warned that migration could occur if the uterus was perforated when the IUD was inserted.
In addition to the claims pending in New Jersey, 344 Mirena lawsuits involving 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)
The Mirena IUD is a contraceptive device that was cleared for sale in the U.S. by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in 2000. In 2009, the FDA approved expanded use of Mirena to treat heavy menstrual bleeding in women who wish to use an IUD as their primary method of birth control. In December of that same year, the agency issued a Warning Letter to Bayer after finding that one of its campaigns promoting Mirena overstated its benefits and downplayed the risk of serious Mirena side effects.
Alleged victims of Mirena side effects associated with spontaneous device migration could be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
