New York, New York (PRWEB) August 04, 2013
Mirena lawsuits (http://www.mirenaiud-lawsuit.com/) continue to move forward in a Multicounty Litigation underway in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court documents, the litigation’s next Case Management Conference is scheduled for August 13, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. Court records indicate that 173 Mirena IUD lawsuits are currently pending in the New Jersey litigation.(I n Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297)
“Our Firm is already representing a number of women who have allegedly suffered serious Mirena complications following spontaneous migration of the device and we continue to hear from more each day, many of whom who have ultimately needed surgery to remove the device,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free Mirena IUD lawsuit consultations to anyone who may have been harmed by this birth control device.
The Mirena IUD was approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) as a birth control method in 2000. However, recent media reports have revealed that the agency has received more than 70,000 complaints involving Mirena complications since the device was brought to market, including thousands of reports detailing device migration and uterine perforations.*
In addition to the claims pending in the New Jersey litigation, at least 100 similar Mirena lawsuits have been filed 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) According to court documents, plaintiffs who have filed Mirena lawsuits in these proceedings allege that Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals has a history of overstating its benefits and downplaying the risk of serious Mirena complications. Among other things, plaintiffs point out that a 2009 FDA Warning Letter cited a Mirena promotional campaign over similar concerns, and took issue with Bayer’s claims regarding the IUD’s purported ability to help a woman “look and feel great,” and improve her sex life.
Women who have suffered spontaneous device migration, uterine perforation, ectopic pregnancy, and other serious complications while using Mirena may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.
