Our Defective Medical Device Lawyers at our Miami Mirena claims office are currently representing a number of Florida women who are suffering very serious injuries related to their intrauterine devices, or IUDs. Mirena IUDs are birth control devices designed and marketed by Bayer to be inserted for up to five years while slowly releasing the hormone levonorgestrel into the bloodstream to prevent pregnancy.
As a Florida defective medical device lawyer, I am currently offering a free legal initial consultation for women across the country who have one or more of the following symptoms:
- Surgical removal of the Mirena IUD.
- Damage to the uterus caused by the Mirena IUD.
- Injury to the cervix due to Mirena IUD.
- Movement of the Mirena IUD higher into the body.
- Pregnancy while using a Mirena IUD.
- Life threatening infections associated with a Mirena IUD.
- Severe inflammation in the pelvis (PID) caused by a Mirena IUD.
- Cysts in the ovaries caused by a Mirena IUD.
Your case is against Bayer, the maker of Mirena
Mirena’s warning label did not tell doctors or patients about the real risks associated with the device. Specifically, Bayer did not mention the possibility that Mirena IUDs can cut through the uterine wall and wander up a woman’s body, causing damage to vital organs along the way. As a defective medical device lawyer, I have reviewed cases where a Mirena IUD has embedded itself into a women’s liver, spleen, or bladder. Once this happens, patients have a high risk for developing sepsis, or infection. Many of our clients have had to undergo surgery to remove their IUDs.
MIRENA LITIGATION—IN BOTH STATE AND FEDERAL COURTS
Although our office is in South Florida, we are representing women across the country against Bayer for Mirena claims. On July 1, 2013, the Mirena cases were assigned to the Honorable Brian Martinotti in the Superior Court of New Jersey. Judge Martinotti is the same judge who is presiding over our Stryker Hip Implant cases and is considered to be one of the most experienced and qualified judges in the country to handle the complex issues surrounding litigation relating to medical devices.
The next case management conference or (CMC) is scheduled in front of him on August 13, 2013, at 2:00 P.M. Judge Martinotti has permitted lawyers to appear telephonically for the hearing.
There are also a number of Mirena Product claims filed in the United States District Court located in White Plains, New York, in front of Judge Cathy Seibel. On July 10, 2013, she received the application for a Plaintiff’s Steering Committee, which appointed a team of lawyers from across the country to work together to prosecute Mirena claims. This is good news for our clients because it requires a coordinated effort by all of the Mirena claims lawyers and defective medical device lawyer like myself, to work together to take on a defendant with the resources of Bayer.
How do I know if I have a Mirena Case?
In order for us to determine if you have a Mirena case, we need to obtain your medical records and verify the following:
- Surgical note for the insertion of the Mirena device.
- OB-GYN follow-up-visit note to verify that the device was properly inserted.
- Follow-up records verifying that the device has moved out of position.
To document this, you can forward us your records, or we can obtain them on your behalf and have them reviewed by our Mirena experts. It is important to note that we are not looking to make a claim against your doctor as we believe the majority of these cases are due to the device’s being defective, and not medical malpractice.
