Bernstein Liebhard LLP Launches Mirena IUD Lawsuit Website Providing Information on Side Effects, Growing Litigation
Date:1/19/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) January 19, 2013

For women looking to pursue a Mirena IUD lawsuit, Bernstein Liebhard LLP has launched a new website providing the most up-to-date Mirena IUD lawsuit news, as well as details about side effects and what legal steps should be taken in filing a claim. This information is vital to anyone who suffered injuries after being implanted with the intrauterine birth control device manufactured by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals Inc.

The firm is also currently offering free and confidential case reviews to women whose Mirena IUD spontaneously migrated, leading to serious side effects such as:

  •     Organ Damage
  •     Abscesses
  •     Perforated Uterus
  •     Infertility
  •     Infection
  •     Intestinal obstruction or perforation
  •     Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
  •     Ectopic Pregnancy

“More and more young women who have suffered horrific injuries allegedly caused by the Mirena IUD have been reaching out to us about their legal options. Our firm’s new website will provide the updated information they need to learn about potential Mirena side effects, as well as the increasing amount of Mirena IUD lawsuits being filed by women around the U.S.,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm that represents the victims of defective drugs and medical devices, including the Mirena IUD.

Mirena IUD Lawsuits

The Mirena IUD is a t-shaped intrauterine device implanted into a woman’s uterus to prevent pregnancy for up to five years. Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2000 as a method of contraception, Mirena’s approved uses were later expanded to include heavy menstrual bleeding in women who wish to use an IUD as their method of birth control. In 2009, the FDA sent a warning letter to Bayer after determining that the company’s promotion of Mirena overstated its efficacy and minimized its risks.*

A rising number of Mirena IUD lawsuits have already been brought by women who claim to have experienced the serious side effects associated with Mirena. Right now, at least 16 claims are pending in New Jersey Superior Court. Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals filed a motion last August to consolidate the Mirena IUD lawsuits in New Jersey before a judge in Middlesex County, which was later denied.**

On January 16, 2013, plaintiffs filed a petition with the U.S. Judicial Panel for Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) to transfer all pending and future federally-filed Mirena lawsuits to the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio for pretrial proceedings. The petition stated that eight lawsuits, which are pending in federal court, claim the Mirena IUD can migrate within a woman’s body once inserted and is designed defectively. The petition also asserted that hundreds of similar claims are likely to be filed over the Mirena IUD in the future.***

Young women who were implanted with the Mirena IUD and experienced migration of the device, uterine perforation and other severe injuries may be eligible to seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages as well as any pain and suffering they may have been caused.
