Injury Lawyer Comments on the Growing Number of Mirena IUD Lawsuits
Date:10/25/2013

(PRWEB) October 25, 2013

Hundreds of Mirena IUD lawsuits are currently pending in both state and federal courts. According to documents from New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court more than 200 suits are now pending (In Re: Mirena Litigation - Case No. 297). In addition to these state claims, more than 150 legal actions are now pending before the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (In Re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation - MDL 2434). Many of these state and federal actions allege that Bayer did not adequately warn women about the risks of the device and that the company improperly marketed the device.

In addition to these lawsuits, the FDA has received thousands of adverse event reports from women. According to an ABC News article from August 27, 2013, there have been 70,072 complaints to the FDA since the device’s approval in 2000. Additionally, since 2008 the FDA has received 4,775 reports of device dislocation, 3,774 reports of abdominal pain, and 1,322 reports of perforation of the uterine wall. One woman who was injured by this device told ABC News that “you think you're doing something to help yourself and your family and then it just ends up turning into a disaster" (i).

Attorney Paul d’Oliveira stated, “Women need to be adequately warned about the risks of any medical decision, especially birth control as any complications can have permanent consequences. In the case of Mirena IUD, it came onto the market and a lot of publicity surrounded its benefits but in my opinion not enough testing was done to make sure it was safe. Now there are more than 70,000 complaints to the FDA and more than 300 lawsuits. Hopefully, the news of this litigation will help other women make a more informed choice and avoid the pain associated with device embedment or uterine perforation. If you need legal help regarding any Mirena IUD injuries do not hesitate to call our law firm.”

The Mirena IUD birth control device has been on the market since 2000 and is manufactured by Bayer. d’Oliveira & Associates has been investigating the safety of medical devices like Mirena IUD. Women who have been injured by this device may be legally entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, or pain and suffering.
