Date:8/9/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) August 09, 2013

Mirena lawsuits (http://www.mirenaiud-lawsuit.com/) filed on behalf of women who suffered uterine perforations and other serious injuries allegedly due to spontaneous migration of the Mirena IUD are continuing to move forward in courts throughout the country, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court documents, conferences will be held next week in the consolidated state and federal litigations currently underway for Mirena IUD lawsuits. The first will be conducted on August 13th at 2:00 p.m. in New Jersey’s Bergen County Superior Court. (In Re: Mirena Litigation; Case No. 297) The following day, a second conference will begin at 9:30 a.m. in U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, where federally-filed Mirena claims have been consolidated for pretrial proceedings. (In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434)

“We are pleased to see these litigations moving forward. We are actively filing Mirena lawsuits on behalf of women who suffered serious injuries, some of which required surgical removal of the device, allegedly due to spontaneous migration of 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
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 claims about the purported benefits of the IUD and its potential side effects that the agency deemed to be misleading. According to recent media reports, the FDA has received more than 70,000 complaints involving Mirena complications since the IUD was first brought to market.*

According to court documents, plaintiffs in Mirena lawsuits are alleged to have suffered a number of serious injuries following spontaneous migration of the device, including uterine perforations, damage to other organs, infections, scarring, and ectopic pregnancy. The lawsuits accuse Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals of downplaying the risk of Mirena complications and exaggerating its benefits. According to court records, at least 173 Mirena IUD lawsuits have been filed in the New Jersey litigation, while more than 100 similar claims are pending in the Southern District of New York.

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