Mirena IUD Injury Lawsuits
According to the FDA, Mirena has been associated with a number of serious side effects, including: • Perforation of the uterine wall or cervix • Embedment of the device in the uterine wall • Ectopic pregnancy • Intrauterine pregnancy (a pregnancy with Mirena in place) • Group A streptococcal sepsis • Pelvic inflammatory disease
Lawsuits were filed in NJ. All of the lawsuits allege the Mirena IUD caused users to suffer severe and permanent physical injuries and substantial pain and suffering. The complaints further allege that Bayer and other Defendants have a history of overstating the benefits of the Mirena IUD, and understating its potential complications
