Mirena IUD Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Issuance of New Case List in New Jersey Mirena Litigation
Date:7/12/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) July 12, 2013

Mirena IUD lawsuit claims continue to mount in a Multicounty Litigation now underway in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to a new Case List issued by the Court on July 9th, at least 170 Mirena lawsuits are currently pending in the New Jersey proceeding. Court documents also indicate that the litigation’s next Case Management Conference has been scheduled for August 13, 2013. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297)

“We hear regularly from young women who have allegedly suffered serious Mirena side effects due to spontaneous migration of this IUD. We are pleased to see these cases moving forward,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free Mirena IUD lawsuit consultations to anyone who may have been harmed by this birth control device.

Mirena IUD Lawsuits
All of the Mirena lawsuits pending in the New Jersey litigation allege Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals failed to provide adequate warnings regarding the risk of serious complications associated with spontaneous migration of the device. Court documents indicate that nearly 50 additional Mirena lawsuits involving similar allegations have been filed in a multidistrict litigation now underway in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York. (In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434) According to Bernstein Liebhard LLP, the cases in both of these litigations have been consolidated for the purpose of coordinated pretrial management, including discovery. Unlike a Mirena class action lawsuit, all of these claims will maintain their individual identity.

The Mirena IUD was approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) as a birth control method in 2000. According to a recent report from NewsChannel5 in Cleveland, Ohio, Mirena is now used by more than two million women in the U.S. However, the same report revealed that the FDA has received more than 70,000 Mirena side effects reports since the IUD was first brought to market. Since 2008, the agency logged more than 4,700 complaints of device dislocation involving Mirena, and 1,300 reports of uterine perforations.*

According to court documents, plaintiffs in Mirena lawsuits allege Bayer has a history of overstating the efficacy of Mirena and understating its risks. In 2009, FDA issued a warning letter that raised similar concerns about one of Bayer’s Mirena promotional campaigns. Among other things, the letter cited Bayer for making statements that indicated Mirena would help a woman “look and feel great,” and improve her sex life.**

Alleged victims of serious Mirena side effects may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.
