Parker Waichman LLP Represents Wisconsin Woman in Lawsuit Alleging Mirena IUD Perforated her Uterus, Causing Serious Pain and Injuries
Date:9/17/2013

Health and Human Services’ Division of Drug Marketing, Advertising, and Communications (DDMAC) criticized the company for making unsubstantiated claims about the device while failing to mention its risks in the company’s “Simple Style” program. The department also criticized the company for a number of statements, including the assertion that Mirena helps women “look and feel great.”

The lawsuit further notes that Bayer’s Mirena IUD was approved in 2000. It is a contraceptive that is supposed to prevent pregnancy for up to five years. The IUD is a small, plastic device that is attached to two strings. Once placed inside the uterus by a healthcare professional, it releases the hormone levonorgestrel.

According to an Oct. 1, 2009, FDA press release, the most serious side effects associated with the Mirena IUD include:

  •     Perforation of the uterine wall
  •     Embedment of the device in the uterine wall
  •     Intrauterine pregnancy
  •     Ectopic pregnancy
  •     Group A streptococcal sepsis
  •     Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)

Recently, the Supreme Court of New Jersey reconsidered its previous decision and has moved to centralize Mirena IUD lawsuits in Bergen County, where Superior Court Judge Brian R. Martinotti will manage them, according to court documents.

The attorneys at Parker Waichman LLP have been actively involved in the Mirena IUD litigation. Partner Raymond C. Silverman has been appointed Co-Lead Counsel in the Mirena IUD multicounty litigation centralized in Bergen County, New Jersey. Matthew J. McCauley, Senior Litigation Counsel at Parker Waichman LLP, was previously appointed Co
