Mirena Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Issuance of New Orders in Federal Multidistrict Litigation for Mirena IUD Lawsuits
Date:8/20/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) August 20, 2013

Mirena lawsuits (http://www.mirenaiud-lawsuit.com/) alleging serious injuries due to spontaneous migration of the IUD continue to move forward in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court documents, the litigation’s most recent conference was convened on August 14th, after which an Order was issued adopting a pretrial schedule through completion of discovery and filing of opening dispositive motion papers on May 15, 2015. Additional Orders were also issued approving both Plaintiff and Defense Fact Sheets. (In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434)

“We are extremely pleased to see these Mirena IUD lawsuits moving forward, as our Firm continues to hear from young woman who allegedly suffered serious Mirena complications, some of whom were forced to undergo risky surgical procedures to locate and remove the IUD,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free legal evaluations to alleged victims of serious Mirena complications.

Mirena IUD lawsuits
Court records indicate that more than 100 Mirena IUD lawsuits are pending in the litigation underway in the Southern District of New York. All of the claims were filed on behalf of women who allegedly suffered a number of serious Mirena complications following spontaneous migration of the device, including uterine perforations, damage to other organs, infections, scarring, and ectopic pregnancy. Plaintiffs further allege that Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals has a history of downplaying the serious risks associated with Mirena and exaggerating its purported benefits. The next conference in the federal multidistrict litigation is scheduled for September 26, 2013.

According to court documents, more than 180 Mirena lawsuits involving similar allegations are pending in a Multicounty Litigation now underway in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court. A Case Management Conference has been scheduled in that proceeding for September 25, 2013. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297)

The Mirena IUD was approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) as a contraceptive in 2000, and its approved uses were later expanded to include treatment of heavy menstrual bleeding in women who wish to use an IUD as their primary method of birth control. In 2009, Bayer received an FDA Warning Letter which criticized the company for making misleading claims about the benefits of the IUD and its potential side effects. According to data from the FDA, its adverse event database has received more than 70,000 reports of Mirena complications since the IUD was first brought to market, many of which involved device dislocation and uterine perforation.*

Women who were allegedly injured by Mirena may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.
