Legal Help from a Mirena IUD Attorney
Monday December 09, 2013
Mirena is an intrauterine device (or IUD) used for contraception and as a treatment to control heavy menstrual bleeding. The FDA approved the device for sale in 2000. Since that time, a significant number of women have reported adverse reactions, including migration of the implant, embedded devices, and perforation of the uterine wall or cervix. These and other serious Mirena side effects may result in permanent injuries and often require surgical intervention. Lawsuits are now being investigated and filed across the country to compensate victims and their families.
Mirena Lawsuits Allege Failure to Warn and Design Defect
Our Mirena attorneys believe the device manufacturer, Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals Inc., failed to properly warn patients and physicians about the potential health risks of Mirena. Moreover, the United States Food and Drug Administration repeatedly reprimanded Bayer for its deceptive advertising and marketing of the Mirena IUD. The FDA warned that Mirena advertisements vastly overstated the benefits of the device while entirely omitting important safety precautions. This website provides detailed information on the FDA's Mirena warnings and the legal grounds for filing a Mirena lawsuit. In a typical Mirena case, the plaintiff will allege that she would not have chosen the Mirena IUD had she been aware of the actual risks, and that side effects such as migration and perforation occurred even after a physician properly implanted the device.
