U.S. District Court Appoints Parker Waichman LLP’s Matthew J. McCauley to Leadership Role in Mirena IUD Litigation
Date:5/23/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) May 23, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by defective medical devices and drugs, is proud to announce that Senior Litigation Counsel Matthew J. McCauley has been appointed Co-Lead Counsel in the Mirena IUD multidistrict litigation entitled In Re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation (Case 7:13-md-02434-CS). The Order, which was filed on May 22nd, states that Co-Lead and Liaison Counsel are to submit their proposal for the Court’s appointment of a Plaintiff’s Steering Committee by June 17, 2013. U.S. District Judge Cathy Seibel issued the Order.

Mr. McCauley also co-chairs the American Association for Justice (AAJ) Mirena IUD Litigation Group. The Group exchanges educational material and medical literature to help the members best represent victims.

The federal MDL centralizes Mirena lawsuits at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. Plaintiffs in the litigation allege that the Mirena IUD contraceptive device has caused serious injuries, including uterine perforation; they are suing Bayer, the manufacturer of Mirena, for allegedly failing to warn about the risks.

Parker Waichman LLP is representing numerous women in Mirena IUD lawsuits across the country. One of the firm’s recent cases was filed on April 12th in the Morris County Civil Division in New Jersey (Civil Action No. L1006-13). The lawsuit was filed on behalf of a woman who underwent laparoscopic surgery after the Mirena IUD allegedly perforated her uterus.

Mirena, which was approved in 2000, is a t-shaped intrauterine device that is attached to two strings. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), 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)
