Law Firm of Page Bradley Continues Reviewing Cases for Victims of Defective Mirena Devices
Date:5/27/2013

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) May 27, 2013

Page Bradley, a personal injury law firm representing plaintiffs injured by the negligence and recklessness of companies and individuals, has announced that it is continuing to accept cases against the makers of Mirena birth control for pain and damages resulting from its purportedly false advertising campaigns.*

The FDA first approved Mirena in December 2000, making it available to the public as an option for birth control, and later approved it in October 2009 for the additional purpose of helping women alleviate heavy menstrual cycles after pregnancy.**

Just a few months later, in December 2009, The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned Bayer, the maker of Mirena, against putting false claims in its advertising and promotional campaigns, noting that its marketing of Mirena as a convenient method of "birth control for busy moms" glossed over some of the complications associated with the product.***

"The advertisements paint a rosy picture for women who are considering using Mirena," said Ryan Bradley, a founding partner at Page Bradley. "That could lead people to believe that there are no serious side effects. Patients who do not realize the dangers associated with using Mirena are more likely to make uninformed decisions and may be harmed as a result."

Problems associated with the allegedly malfunctioning medical device, according to AdverseEvents.com, include pain, discomfort, excessive bleeding, expulsion and unplanned changes in the device's location. Other issues associated with Mirena include pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), pain, internal scar tissue, irregular bleeding and ovarian cysts.****

Patients who have experienced any of these problems may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer. This will be determined on a case by case basis. Page Bradley is currently offering free consultations related to injuries caused by Mirena.
