Mirena Lawyer Reports on Surge of Lawsuits Filed
Surge in Mirena Lawsuits Filed Against Bayer for Side Effect Injuries
The number of Mirena injury lawsuits filed in the United States is rising first as more and more consumers suffering from side effects are coming forward. While publication of large number of independent studies have generated awareness about Mirena contraceptive injuries, media reports highlighting complaints have resulted surge in litigations for the last one year. Law firms are also evaluating cases of hundreds of consumers who suffered from IUD side effects and more Mirena lawsuits are expected to go up.
Why Mirena Lawsuits
Mirena IUD has been linked to a number of side effects, including surgical removal of uterus. It also causes serious pelvic disorders, such as uterus perforation, infection, vaginitis, painful ovarian cysts, and menstrual problems. Minor side effects of Mirena include angioedema, back pain, acne, hypertension, respiratory side effects, and nervous system problems. However, the manufacturer has failed to inform consumers about potential hazards of using the device despite clinical trials and post-marketing studies highlighting Mirena side effects. Bayer even went on to promote the contraceptive device as safe and without any adverse effects until the FDA sent a written warning to stop the campaign. The federal regulator subsequently targeted the promotional campaign through its “Bad Ad Program.”
The IUD manufacturer is liable to be sued under product liability litigation for selling dangerous and defective products that can injure users. Any one suffering from the following complications can file Mirena side effect injury lawsuits seeking compensation for her medical, physical, and financial sufferings.
- Mirena side effect causing genitourinary complications
- Uterine problems, perforations, inflammation, and infections
- Device migration injuries

The healthcare professionals can be sued if their failure to implant the device properly results in device failure or pelvic injuries.

Mirena Injury Lawsuits
Bayer Healthcare is facing more than two dozens of Mirena lawsuits filed in the Morris County superior court, New Jersey. The latest lawsuit was filed last month by a Californian woman, who suffered from uterus perforation caused by the device migration and required to remove the punctured uterus. The device displaced from its implanted site injured various pelvic organs causing her to suffer severe pain and no-viable pregnancy.
A Mirena injury lawsuit filed in October 2011 has sought $2 million in damages. The plaintiff, a woman from Virginia, experienced acute abdomen pain within months of Mirena contraceptive insertion. She was also diagnosed with ectopic pregnancy. Medical examination led to the discovery of the floating IUD in her abdomen.
In April 2012, a woman from Ohio, who had to undergo hysterectomy because of Mirena contraceptive migration, sued Bayer for marketing defective devices. A similar lawsuit has also been filed by a woman from Oklahoma. The plaintiff had severe pelvic and uterine infection caused the IUD.
If you experienced adverse Mirena side effects, required surgery or have a loved one who suffered death following the implantation of Mirena, you may have a potentialMirena lawsuit.
