New York, NY (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
As Mirena IUD lawsuits proceed in courts, the Rottenstein Law Group LLP highlights a recent news story from an NBC affiliate in Cleveland that features the serious alleged side effects of the hormone-based contraceptive device. The Rottenstein Law Group LLP publicizes this information to assist those looking to file Mirena lawsuits and who are interested in learning more about Mirena side effects.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has logged more than 70,000 complaints about the Mirena hormonal intrauterine device since the product first went to market in 2000, according to a June 17 NewsChannel 5 report.* Almost 5,000 of them have reported device migration, in which the IUD is displaced from its implantation site and moves to other parts of the uterus or beyond. The story even highlights a court case in which a woman alleges her Mirena IUD migrated into her rib cage.This can lead to the IUD becoming embedded in a woman’s uterine wall, the story said. More than 1,300 women have complained about the IUD perforating their uteruses.
“The women in the NBC report affirm the concerns of those who call us looking to file Mirena lawsuits,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP. “As more media attention is paid to the suffering, the more these women feel empowered to investigate their options for compensation.”
More than 60 Mirena lawsuits were consolidated recently in New Jersey state court because they have common causes for suit, which allows for more efficient pretrial proceedings, according to court documents in In re Mirena Litigation (Case No. 297, Superior Court of New Jersey, Bergen County). The plaintiffs allege the same side effects as described in the NBC report.
The Rottenstein Law Group LLP encourages those with the Mirena hormonal IUD to visit this page to download a free informational brochure about the device and users’ eligibility to file a lawsuit.
