Our Firm continues to represent women in Mirena lawsuits who allege similar injuries deriving from the birth control implant.
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 12, 2014
The Mirena IUD (http://www.injurybeacon.com/mirena-iud/) litigation in New Jersey is looking ahead to its next status conference, which is scheduled to take place at the end of this month in Bergen County Superior Court, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports.
A Calendar posted on the Court’s website indicates that its upcoming Case Management Conference is scheduled to take place on October 21, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. There, parties involved in the state proceeding will likely discuss matters related to claims involving the Mirena IUD, which is marketed by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals and has been suggested to cause a number of painful and debilitating injuries. Among them is the alleged potential for Mirena to spontaneously migrate away from its original point of insertion, and perforate the uterine wall. Bayer is accused in these cases of failing to adequately warn women about complications that may result from use of its product, which plaintiffs allege was defectively designed. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297)
“We are looking forward to the next status conference in New Jersey’s IUD litigation, as our Firm continues to represent women in Mirena lawsuits who allege similar injuries deriving from the birth control implant,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is offering free and confidential Mirena lawsuit evaluations to women who allege complications associated with spontaneous migration of the device.
When the Mirena litigation underway in Bergen County Superior Court last updated its Case List on September 17th, a total of 1,093 lawsuits had been filed. Plaintiffs in these cases allege that Bayer has a history of downplaying side effects of the IUD and overstating its benefits, and has been reprimanded for such behavior in the past. In 2009, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sent a Warning Letter to the company that took issue with certain promotions of Mirena that included misleading claims about the contraceptive’s safety and efficacy.
As a result of Bayer’s alleged failure to adequately warn women about the IUD’s potential to spontaneously move away from the uterus and into other parts of the body, Plaintiffs experienced uterine perforations, scarring, adhesions, infection and organ damage, as well as other painful complications.
These allegations are included in more than 937 additional claims filed in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, court records indicate. In a federal litigation established there, claimants similarly allege complications that occurred after the IUD was properly inserted by a healthcare provider. (In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434)
Women whose Mirena IUD allegedly migrated away from the uterus and caused them to suffer injuries may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.
