DrugRisks Update: Federal Court Schedules First Mirena Lawsuit Hearing
Date:4/20/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) April 20, 2013

The IUD safety advocates at DrugRisks.com are announcing updated information on the site for women using the IUD contraceptive Mirena. A recently-established Mirena IUD federal multidistrict litigation court in New York has scheduled its first conference for May.

DrugRisks was created to provide those using popular medication devices, such as IUD contraceptives, with the latest safety alerts, recalls, studies and legal news. Patients can determine if others are experiencing similar side effects and decide if they need legal advice.

The resource center has added a study from the Journal of the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons cautioning patients about the migration and perforation of Mirena IUDs after implantation*.

Also, the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology recently published a study highlighting the risks for women who must undergo surgery to remove an IUD like Mirena after the devices dislodge and perforate into the abdominal cavity**.

With the number of patients filing a Mirena lawsuit growing, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation issued a Transfer Order on April 8, centralizing all cases filed in the Mirena MDL to the Southern District of New York (In Re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434).

Now, DrugRisks notes the court has issued the first case management order in the combined litigation setting an initial conference for May 17th at 10:30 a.m., and requiring that counsel file Position Statements no later than May 11, 2013.

DrugRisks believes the expedited handling of these cases by the federal MDL court will be a benefit to patients alleging injury from the devices.

Anyone who suffered perforation or required surgery while using a Mirena IUD is urged to speak with a lawyer about their legal rights. Due to the specialized nature of federal MDL drug injury cases, DrugRisks only recommends lawyers who are already handling Mirena lawsuits.

Visit http://www.DrugRisks.com today for more information on IUD research, side effects of Mirena and litigation news, or to speak with a lawyer.
