Mirena Lawsuit Conference Scheduled for September in New Jersey Litigation, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:8/17/2014

New York, New York (PRWEB) August 17, 2014

More than 900 Mirena IUD lawsuits (http://www.drugbot.com/mirena-iud/lawsuit/) filed on behalf of women who were allegedly injured due to spontaneous device migration continue to move forward in a multicounty litigation currently underway in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court documents, the proceeding’s next Case Management Conference has been scheduled for September 23, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. The parties have been directed to submit a proposed agenda to the Court seven days prior to the date of the Conference. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297)

“Our Firm has filed numerous Mirena IUD lawsuits in this proceeding. We are pleased that the litigation is progressing,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free case evaluations to women who were allegedly harmed after their Mirena IUD spontaneously migrated from its proper position in the uterus.

Mirena Lawsuit Allegations
The Mirena IUD was brought to market in 2000 and is now approved as both a contraceptive and as a treatment for heavy menstrual bleeding in women who wish to use an IUD for contraception. In December 2009, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Warning Letter to Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals after finding that one of the company’s Mirena promotions made misleading claims about the safety and efficacy of the IUD.

Court documents indicate that more than 920 lawsuits have been filed in Bergen County Superior Court on behalf of women who allegedly suffered serious Mirena complications related to spontaneous migration of the device, including uterine perforations, organ damage and infertility. The lawsuits further allege that Bayer did not warn doctors or patients that the IUD could spontaneously migrate from its proper position in the uterus, even following correct implantation. According to the complaints, the labeling for the Mirena IUD merely warns that the device may migrate if the uterus is punctured during its initial insertion.

In addition to the cases pending in New Jersey, court records show that hundreds of additional Mirena IUD lawsuits involving similar allegations have been filed in a federal multidistrict litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York. (In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434)

Women who allegedly suffered uterine perforations, scarring, ectopic pregnancy, organ damage and other Mirena complications related to spontaneous IUD migration may be entitled to compensation for their injury-related damages.
