Mirena IUD Lawsuits Move Forward, With Issuance of New Case Management Orders in New Jersey Litigation, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:9/28/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) September 28, 2013

More than 200 Mirena IUD lawsuit (http://www.themirenalawsuitcenter.com/) claims filed on behalf of young women who allegedly sustained serious injures due to spontaneous migration of the device continue to move forward in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court documents, a number of Case Management Orders were issued in the multicounty litigation on September 25th, which pertained to the use of a Defense Fact Sheet; the preservation of documents and electronically stored information; the protocol for document format production; and a discovery schedule.

The litigation’s next Case Management Conference has been scheduled for November 20, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297)

“We are pleased with the continued progress of this litigation, as our Firm continues to hear from young women who have allegedly experienced serious Mirena complications after the IUD migrated from its proper position in the uterus. Some of these women have had to undergo surgery to remove the device, and many have suffered permanent damage to their health and fertility,” 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 evaluations to women who may have been harmed by this birth control device.

Mirena Lawsuits

Court documents indicate that more than 370 Mirena lawsuits are now pending in litigations underway in both federal and state courts. In addition to the 219 claims that have been filed in New Jersey, 159 Mirena IUD lawsuits involving similar allegations are also pending in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York. (In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434) All of the claims accuse Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals of failing to provide adequate warnings regarding the possibility of spontaneous migration and related complications, and of exaggerating Mirena’s benefits while downplaying its risks. Some of the Mirena complications allegedly suffered by these plaintiffs include uterine perforations, uterine embedment, ectopic pregnancy, infections, and scarring.

Recent media reports indicate that the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has received more than 70,000 complaints involving Mirena complications, including instances of device dislocation and uterine perforation, since the IUD was first approved by the agency as a long-action method of birth control in 2000.* In 2009, Bayer received an FDA Warning Letter which criticized the company for making claims in certain Mirena marketing materials that the agency deemed to be misleading, including some that overstated the IUD’s benefits and downplayed serious Mirena complications.

Victims of alleged Mirena complications may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Learn More about Mirena IUD lawsuits by visiting Bernstein Liebhard LLP’s website. For additional information, please call 800-511-5092.
