DrugNews: Federal Court Moves Growing Mirena Lawsuits Forward
Date:9/12/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 12, 2013

The birth control safety center at DrugNews.net is advising women using the Mirena IUD of updated information on the site. Amid a rise in the number of lawsuits alleging the devices caused perforation injuries, a federal court recently entered an order to begin selection of cases for trial*.

DrugNews was created to improve patient safety by giving those using popular prescription drugs or medical devices access to the latest safety alerts, recalls, studies and legal news. Visitors can determine if others are experiencing similar side effects and decide if they need legal advice.

The resource center contains warnings from health experts about possible injury from Mirena IUDs. The FDA has previously advised that patients can suffer perforation of reproductive organs during device implantation**.

DrugNews has also added a study from the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons which warns Mirena IUDs can become dislodged and perforate the uterine wall after installation***. FDA records show the agency has received 70,072 reports of Mirena side effects, with as many as 6,000 involving device dislocation or uterus perforation****.

Due to the number of patients filing a Mirena lawsuit, federal cases have been consolidated to a special multi-district litigation court in New York (In Re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434, Southern District New York). Court records show the number of cases filed has increased over 17% in the past month, from 105 on July 10 to 123 on August 15th*****.

Now, Judge Seibel, who is overseeing the federal litigation, has ordered that parties select the initial pool of bellwether trial cases by April 4, 2014*. These test cases can give the parties a sample of jury reaction and set the tone for settlement negotiations.

Anyone who suffered perforation or required surgery while using a Mirena IUD is urged to speak with a lawyer about their legal options. However, DrugNews only recommends lawyers who are already handling Mirena lawsuits.
