DrugRisk Update: Latest Court Order Moves Mirena Lawsuits Forward
Date:9/7/2013

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 07, 2013

The birth control safety center at DrugRisk.com has added new information for women using the IUD contraceptive Mirena. A federal court overseeing lawsuits alleging perforation injuries from the devices recently entered an order to begin selection of cases for trial*.

DrugRisk is a resource center for those patients using popular prescription drugs or medical devices, giving them 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 has added health warnings from the FDA that Mirena IUDs can cause perforation of reproductive organs during implantation**. Also, the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons has advised that Mirena IUDs can become dislodged and perforate internal organs after they are inserted***.

So far, the FDA has received 70,072 reports of Mirena side effects, with as many as 6,000 involving device dislocation or perforation of the uterus****.

Due to the number of patients filing a Mirena lawsuit, many cases have been consolidated to a special multi-district litigation court in the Southern District of New York. (In Re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434). The latest court records show 123 cases have already been filed.

Now, Judge Cathy Seibel, who is overseeing the federal litigation, has entered an order calling for the selection of the initial pool of bellwether cases by April 4, 2014*. Such 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 or visit the DrugRisk resource center for more information. However, DrugRisk only recommends lawyers who are already handling these complex Mirena lawsuits.
