Mirena IUD Lawsuits Move Forward, as Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Upcoming Case Management Conference in Federal Mirena Side Effects Litigation

New York, New York (PRWEB) June 23, 2013

Mirena IUD lawsuit claims continue to move forward in the federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court Southern District of New York. According to court documents, the next Status Conference in the federal Mirena side effects litigation is scheduled for July 1, 2013. So far, nearly 50 claims have been filed in the Southern District of New York on behalf of women who suffered spontaneous device migration, uterine perforations, and other injuries, allegedly due to the Mirena IUD. (In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434)

“We continue to hear from women who allegedly suffered serious Mirena side effects. We look forward to additional progress in this litigation in the coming months,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm continues to offer free Mirena lawsuit consultations to women who were allegedly harmed as a result of spontaneous migration of the Mirena IUD.

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. NewsChannel5 in Cleveland, Ohio reported on June 17th that more 70,000 adverse event reports involving the Mirena IUD have been logged with the FDA since 2000, including thousands involving device dislocation and uterine perforations.*

Court filings indicate that plaintiffs in Mirena lawsuits are alleged to have suffered serious injuries due to spontaneous migration of the IUD. Claims further allege that Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals downplayed potential Mirena side effects and failed to provide adequate warnings regarding the potential for spontaneous device migration. In addition to the federal litigation now underway in the Southern District of New York, at least 100 Mirena IUD lawsuits have been filed in a consolidated litigation underway in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297)

Alleged victims of Mirena side effects may be eligible to file claims in either of these litigations if they suffered from injuries related to spontaneous migration of the IUD.
