“Our Firm is filing Mirena lawsuits in this Bergen County litigation on a regular basis, and are pleased to see the litigation moving forward.
New York, NY (PRWEB) March 07, 2015
The attorneys at Bernstein Liebhard note recent court filings that reflect nearly 1,800 Mirena IUD lawsuits (http://www.mirenalawsuit2014.com/) in a New Jersey litigation that includes many of the Firm’s cases.
According to a Case List updated on February 25, 2015, at least 1,790 claims over the IUD are now pending in a state proceeding now underway in Bergen County Superior Court. Plaintiffs in these cases, many of which were filed by Bernstein Liebhard LLP, allege complications that stem from spontaneous device migration and may result in ectopic pregnancy, infection, uterine perforations and other problems. These Mirena complications allegedly followed proper insertion of the IUD by a healthcare provider, according to plaintiffs who further accuse Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals of failing to adequately warn about problems that may stem from use of its product. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297)
“Our Firm is filing Mirena lawsuits in this Bergen County litigation on a regular basis, and are pleased to see the litigation moving forward. Our attorneys are doing all we can to earn those who have been injured the compensation they deserve,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a natonwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free and confidential case evaluations to women who were allegedly injured by the Mirena IUD.
Mirena IUD Lawsuits
The Mirena IUD was approved in 2000 as a contraceptive, and is now used by well over two million women in the U.S. who opt for birth control. The list of approved uses for the small, T-shaped device expanded in 2009 to include the treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding in women by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), who originally cleared it as a contraceptive.
Since then, the number of IUD complaints against Bayer has reached the thousands. In addition to nearly 1,800 Mirena lawsuits now pending in New Jersey, where Bernstein Liebhard LLP is actively filing claims, hundreds of others have also been centralized in U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York. There, a multidistrict litigation now includes approximately 1,180 cases. (In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434)
Mirena lawsuits in both these jurisdictions similarly accuse Bayer of failing to adequately warn women about the risk for spontaneous migration and other complications, which they have a history of downplaying. Plaintiffs claim that one way they have done this is by only warning about the IUD’s potential to spontaneously migrate if the IUD punctures the uterine wall during insertion. The complaints also point out that in its manufacturer, Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, received a Warning Letter from the FDA that took issue with certain promotions of the IUD that they found misleading.
Women who were allegedly harmed as a result of spontaneous Mirena migration may be entitled to compensation from Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals.
