"The cases in this litigation primarily involve injuries allegedly caused by the Mirena intrauterine contraceptive system. The cases listed on Schedule A allege that the product may migrate away from its original position, perforate the uterus, and/or cause related injuries. The cases listed on Schedule B alleges that the product causes autoimmune disorders."
Resource4thePeople is also reporting that there are over 200 other cases in a state multidistrict litigation**** involving similar allegations that have been consolidated before a New Jersey state judge according the state court file in those cases.
The judge in those cases recently provided an outline of pre-trial evidence gathering parameters that will lead up to trials that are now scheduled to occur in the second half of 2015, according to the court file. The judge also has scheduled a key hearing for Nov. 20, 2013 for an update on the progress of the litigation.
"Neither of these multidistrict litigations limit the rights of consumers who may have been affected by these allegations to seek information about their legal rights to seek possible compensation for any serious side effects they may have suffered," said Resource4thePeople.
The court file in these cases shows that among the allegations are claims that the Mirena IUD migrated from its original positioning and subjected women to perforated uteruses and other serious side effects.
“Our team attorneys are continuing to review allegations that include claims of ectopic pregnancies, sepsis, perforations and ovarian cysts,” said Resource4thePeople.
Resource4thePeople also reports that among the most recent Mirena IUD lawsuits alleging serious side effects is one filed by an Ohio woman in a Pennsylvania federal court.*****
