Arkansas Woman’s Mirena IUD Migrated Outside of Uterus, Prompting Need for Surgery, Alleges Parker Waichman LLP in Lawsuit
Date:9/19/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) September 19, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by defective drugs and medical devices, has filed a lawsuit alleging that the Mirena IUD migrated outside an Arkansas woman’s uterus. The lawsuit was filed on August 26, 2013, in the Superior Court of New Jersey Law Division, Bergen County (Case No. L-675212), which is part of the multidistrict litigation (MDL) entitled In Re: Mirena Litigation (MDL No. 297). Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Inc.; Bayer Healthcare Ag; Bayer Pharma Ag; and Bayer Oy have been named as Defendants.

According to the Complaint, the Plaintiff, a 26-year-old woman from Arkansas, was implanted with the Mirena IUD in September 2009. At that time, there was no reason to suspect that the Mirena IUD had migrated away from its original implantation site. The lawsuit points out that Bayer’s warning label only mentions the risk of spontaneous migration occurring just after the device is first placed in the uterus. On October 27, 2010, the Plaintiff was taken to the hospital complaining of abdominal pain. A CT scan was performed and revealed that the Mirena IUD had migrated to the right side, an extra-uterine location, which necessitated surgery to remove the IUD.

The lawsuit seeks compensation for severe and permanent physical injuries, substantial pain and suffering, and economic loss due to medical expenses and lost wages. The lawsuit also seeks compensation on behalf of the woman’s husband over loss of consortium.

The lawsuit alleges that Bayer knew that the Mirena IUD was defective but failed to warn of the device’s risks. The lawsuit also alleges that Bayer has a history of misrepresenting the Mirena IUD. In a
