Mirena IUD Lawsuits: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Filing of Mirena Class Action Lawsuit in Canada
Date:5/13/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) May 13, 2013

As Mirena IUD lawsuits continue to mount in courts throughout the U.S., Bernstein Liebhard LLP notes a lawsuit recently filed in Canada includes many of the same allegations put forth by U.S. plaintiffs. According to an April 23rd filing with the Nova Scotia Supreme Court, the Mirena lawsuit seeks class action certification on behalf of all Canadian women who have allegedly suffered serious Mirena IUD side effects, including migration of the device and uterine perforations. (Hfx. No. 414709)

“Many of the injuries alleged in the Canadian complaint echo what we have heard from our own Mirena clients. As is the case with lawsuits pending in the U.S., the Canadian claim also alleges Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals failed to provide adequate warnings about the significant risks that are allegedly associated with the Mirena IUD,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free legal consultations to women who suffered uterine perforations, device migration, and other alleged Mirena IUD side effects.

Mirena Lawsuits
The Mirena IUD was approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) as a birth control method in 2000. In 2009, Mirena’s approved uses were expanded to include treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding in women who wish to use an IUD as their method of birth control. On April 8th, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) ordered that all federally-filed Mirena lawsuits be transferred to the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, for pretrial proceedings. According to court documents, these claims allege that Bayer has a history of overstating Mirena’s benefits and downplaying its serious risks
