New York, NY (PRWEB) July 07, 2013
A new Mirena lawsuit website has been launched by Bernstein Liebhard LLP to provide information to women who may be concerned about potential Mirena complications, including uterine perforations, uterine embedment, infections, scarring and other side effects allegedly associated with spontaneous migration of the IUD. The Firm’s new Mirena IUD lawsuit website will also be updated regularly with the most current information regarding the growing products liability litigation surrounding Mirena.
“Numerous lawsuits have already been filed by women who have allegedly suffered uterine perforations and other serious Mirena complications that followed spontaneous migration of the IUD. This website will provide valuable information to worried patients and their families regarding the potential risks associated with the Mirena IUD, as well as their options for legal recourse,” 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.
Mirena IUD Lawsuits
The Mirena IUD was approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) as a birth control method in 2000, and is now used by more than 2 million women in the U.S. Since its initial approval, the uses of Mirena have been expanded to include treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding in women who wish to use an IUD as their method of birth control. A recent report from NewsChannel5 in Cleveland, Ohio revealed that the FDA has received more than 70,000 reports of Mirena complications since the IUD was first launched. These reports have included thousands of incidents involving device dislocation and uterine perforations.*
Court documents indicate that nearly 50 Mirena lawsuits have been filed in a multidistrict litigation now underway in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York on behalf of women who allegedly suffered spontaneous device migration, uterine perforations, and other injuries as a result of the device. (In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434). Court filings also show that at least 100 Mirena IUD lawsuits have been filed in a consolidated litigation underway in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297) Among other things, plaintiffs allege that Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals failed to provide adequate warnings regarding the risk of serious Mirena complications associated with spontaneous migration of the IUD.
Women who have allegedly suffered serious Mirena complications following spontaneous migration of the device may be eligible to file claims in either of these litigations.
