New York, NY (PRWEB) April 20, 2014
The attorneys at Bernstein Liebhard LLP have unveiled a new Mirena lawsuit (http://www.mirenalawsuit2014.com/) website for women who allegedly experienced complications stemming from spontaneous migration of the IUD, and are now considering a claim against its manufacturer, the Firm reports.
Among other information included on the Firm’s new site will be updates related to the nationwide litigation of claims over Mirena, a birth control implant approved in 2000 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as well as a detailed list of side effects that have been suggested to occur after insertion by a healthcare provider. According to more than 1,000 lawsuits now filed in the U.S., these may include but are not limited to: pelvic organ perforations, uterine perforations, vaginal scarring, infection and organ damage. Plaintiffs in these cases similarly allege that Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals failed to adequately warn about IUD complications in their marketing of the contraceptive.
“As we continue to hear from women who allege spontaneous migration of the IUD, our Firm recognized the importance of launching a website that provides them information on how to file a Mirena lawsuit, “ says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices, including the Mirena IUD. The Firm is currently offering free and confidential case evaluations to individuals who may be eligible to file a Mirena lawsuit.
Court records show continued progress in two Mirena lawsuit litigations established at the U.S. In the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, a recent court update shows more than 484 cases now filed in a multidistrict litigation established for federal cases over the IUD. Women involved in the proceeding allege similar injuries from the IUD, which they say was designed defectively given its potential to migrate way from the uterine wall. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297)
Vaginal scarring, infection, organ damage and other alleged side effects of Mirena have been claimed in lawsuits now pending in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court, where suits have been consolidated for pretrial proceedings. A Case List updated April 2nd on the court’s website shows 703 IUD lawsuits now filed in the jurisdiction by plaintiffs in who allege that Bayer has a long-standing history of overstating Mirena’s effectiveness in preventing pregnancy for up to five years, and downplaying its risk for side effects. The FDA warned the company against such behavior in 2009, when they sent a Warning Letter that took issue with certain marketing claims involving the IUD. (In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434)
That same year, Mirena’s list of approved uses expanded to include the treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding in women who used it for birth control.
Women who allegedly experienced spontaneous IUD migration, as well as uterine perforations and other side effects following implantation of Mirena may be eligible to file a lawsuit that seeks compensation for damages incurred by their injury.
