Mirena Lawsuits Filed on Behalf of Alleged Victims of Mirena Side Effects Surpass 100 in Federal Multidistrict Litigation, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:7/16/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) July 16, 2013

Mirena lawsuit claims pending in a federal multidistrict litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, continue to mount, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to a July 10th update issued by the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML), more than 105 Mirena side effects lawsuits have been transferred to the Southern District of New York since the multidistrict litigation was established by the JPML this past April. (In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434)

“We continue to hear from women who have allegedly suffered serious Mirena side effects due to the spontaneous migration of the device. Our Firm is not surprised that this litigation is growing so quickly,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free Mirena lawsuit consultations to anyone who may have been harmed by this birth control device.

Mirena Lawsuits
The Mirena IUD is a long-acting birth control device that is inserted into the uterus by a healthcare professional, where it can remain for up to five years. According to a recent report from NewsChannel5 in Cleveland, Ohio, more than 2 million women use Mirena as their method of birth control. However, since its launch in 2000,over 70,000 Mirena side effects reports have been made to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), including thousands of reports of device dislocation and uterine perforations.*

All of the Mirena lawsuits pending in the Southern District of New York allege Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals failed to provide adequate warnings regarding the potential for spontaneous device migration and related complications, including uterine perforations, embedment in the uterine wall, scarring, infections, and ectopic pregnancy. In addition to the federal claims, some 170 Mirena side effect lawsuits that involve similar allegations have been filed in a Multicounty Litigation now underway in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court. Court documents indicate that the judge overseeing the New Jersey proceeding has scheduled its next Case Management Conference for August 13, 2013. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297)

Women who have suffered serious Mirena side effects may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.
