Mirena Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Comments on Mounting Reports of Mirena Side Effects, Including Device Migration, Uterine Perforations

New York, New York (PRWEB) June 18, 2013

As Mirena lawsuit claims continue to move forward in both state and federal court, a new report has revealed that that the IUD has been the subject of more than 70,000 U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) adverse event reports since coming on the market in 2000. According to NewsChannel5 in Cleveland, Ohio, over 4.700 Mirena users have reported device dislocation or migration to the FDA since 2008, while more than 1,300 have reportedly experienced uterine perforations due to Mirena.*

“We are not at all surprised by these numbers, as our Firm receives inquiries on a regular basis from women who have allegedly suffered uterine perforations, device migration, and other serious Mirena side effects. The injuries described in this report echo much of what we have heard from our own Mirena lawsuit clients,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm continues to offer free Mirena IUD lawsuit consultations to women who were allegedly harmed by this contraceptive device.

Mirena Lawsuits
According to the NewsChannel5 report, dozens of Mirena IUD lawsuits are currently pending in courts around the country. Plaintiffs in these claims have allegedly suffered horrific injuries due to dislocation of the Mirena IUD, including cases where the device punctured the uterus and moved into the abdominal cavity and damaged other organs. In one case, a plaintiff allegedly suffered a lacerated liver due to Mirena migration, while others were forced to undergo hysterectomies because of their injuries. One woman interviewed for the report even suffered permanent nerve damage after undergoing surgery to remove a Mirena IUD that had migrated outside of her uterus. Despite these types of incidents, however, there is no indication that Bayer is planning to issue a Mirena recall for the IUD.

Court documents indicate that some 100 MIrena lawsuits are pending in a consolidated litigation underway in New Jersey Superior Court, Bergen County. A Case Management Conference has been scheduled for July 1st in that litigation. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297) Meanwhile, at least 50 federally-filed Mirena side effect claims are also pending in a federal multidistrict litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York. However, attorneys interviewed for the NewsChannel5 report predicted that hundreds of additional Mirena IUD lawsuits would likely be filed in the near future. (In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434)

Women who suffered device migration, uterine perforations and other serious Mirena side effects could be entitled to compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.
