We Are Reviewing Lawsuits For Injuries Caused By The Mirena IUD
The product-liability lawyers at Taylor Martino, P.C. are reviewing potential lawsuits for women who have experienced serious and debilitating problems while using the Mirena IUD. You may qualify to file a Mirena lawsuit if you suffered uterine perforation or other serious complications associated with the Mirena IUD. A growing number of women are filing lawsuits alleging that Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals failed to provide adequate warnings about the serious risks associated with this birth-control device.
Complications associated with the Mirena IUD are extremely serious, and often require emergency surgical intervention to remove the device. Injuries caused by the Mirena IUD can endanger a woman’s fertility, as well as her life, and can cause substantial pain and suffering.
In 2009, the FDA accused Bayer of overstating Mirena’s benefits and understating its potentially serious complications. In a warning letter sent to the company, the FDA took issue with live, in-home Mirena promotional events Bayer was coordinating with a popular social-networking website. During these presentations, attendees were promised Mirena would improve couples’ relationships and sex lives. The letter pointed out that, contrary to Bayer’s representations, many Mirena users had complained about side effects including irregular bleeding, ovarian cysts, back pain, weight gain, breast pain and tenderness, and acne.
