Mirena Lawsuit Update: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports on Growing Number of Mirena IUD Lawsuits Pending in Federal Multidistrict Litigation

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 23, 2013

Mirena lawsuits ( filed on behalf of women who allegedly suffered uterine perforations and other serious Mirena complications continue to mount in courts around the country, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court records, at least 159 Mirena IUD lawsuits are now pending in the federal multidistrict litigation underway in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York. The Court is scheduled to convene the Mirena litigation’s next Status Conference on Tuesday, September 24th, at 9:30 a.m. (In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434)

“Our Firm regularly hears from young women who have allegedly suffered serious Mirena complications, some of which have had long-lasting affects on their health and fertility. It is not surprising at all that the number of Mirena lawsuits pending in New York stand at 159,” 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 alleged victims of serious Mirena complications related to spontaneous migration of the device.

Mirena IUD Lawsuits
All of the Mirena lawsuits pending in the Southern District of New York allege that users of the IUD suffered uterine perforations, uterine embedment, ectopic pregnancy, and other serious Mirena complications after the IUD migrated from its position in the uterus after having been properly inserted by a healthcare provider. All of the claims accuse Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals of failing to provide adequate warnings regarding the possibility of spontaneous migration, and of exaggerating Mirena’s benefits while downplaying its risks.

In addition to the claims pending in New York, court records indicate that 215 Mirena IUD lawsuits involving similar allegations are also pending in a multicounty litigation underway in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court. The Court is scheduled to hold a Case Management Conference in that proceeding on September 25th at 2:00 p.m. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297)

The Mirena IUD has been available for sale in the U.S. since 2000, has been approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) as a long-acting contraceptive, and as a treatment for 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 took the company to task over marketing claims the agency deemed to be misleading. Recent media reports indicate that the FDA has received more than 70,000 complaints involving Mirena complications, including instances of device dislocation and uterine perforation, since the IUD was first brought to market.*

Mirena users who have allegedly suffered uterine perforations or other Mirena complications may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
