Instead of warning women of the severe risks of Mirena, Bayer actually marketed the devices to busy moms at organized “Mom Central” parties as a way to improve intimacy and “look and feel great.” The FDA reprimanded the company several times and they have since ceased such promotions. There is no indication of a Mirena recall.
However, Bayer faces liability for not properly warning women of these risks. Experts fear that many more women will suffer serious complications from this device. Lawyers are helping those women and families affected by injury file a Mirena lawsuit.
It is important to learn your legal options. If you or someone you love has been injured as a result of a Mirena IUD, contact us today for the latest Mirena lawsuit updates. Your consultation with a lawyer is free.
The small, plastic t-shaped Mirena IUD device is designed to be implanted into the uterus by a healthcare professional. The device works by releasing small doses of a progestin hormone to prevent pregnancy, and can be worn for up to 5 years. The implants have also been approved to treat heavy menstrual bleeding.
The FDA has received more than 47,000 reports of serious complications caused by the Mirena IUD. These included device migration, which can perforate the uterine wall or damage other organs.
For many women, the complications are so severe they must undergo surgery to remove the device. Some women have become infertile as a result of these complications.
Now, Bayer faces growing litigation from the thousands of women affected by these defective devices. Many women have already begun filing a Mirena lawsuit. Due to the number of Mirena claims expected, lawyers recently petitioned that all cases be consolidated to a special centralized federal court.
It is your right to seek legal counsel if you have been affected by these complications. A lawyer can help you understand the litigation process, as well as whether your case qualifies and how long you have to take action.
A medical deviceinjury claim can be a complex legal matter. Before choosing a lawyer, make sure they are experienced in fighting large drug companies.
