Alleged Mirena® IUD Lead to Lawsuit

Filed March 12th, 2013 admin

A Texas woman being represented by the national law firm, Parker Waichman LLP, has filed a lawsuit against Bayer Healthcare. The lawsuit, which was filed in the Superior Court of New Jersey Law Division, alleges that the Mirena® IUD caused the woman to suffer serious injuries.

The woman said she received the Mirena® IUD in December 2008 and initially appeared to tolerate the procedure well. It was not until the woman underwent laparoscopic surgery to retrieve the Mirena® IUD in June 2011 that she learned that the device was embedded in her anterior abdominal wall.

The woman is suing for serious and permanent physical injuries, substantial pain and suffering and economic loss due to medical expenses and lost earnings. The lawsuit alleges that Bayer failed to warn about the risks of using the Mirena® IUD, and attributes the woman’s damages to Bayer’s negligent and wrongful conduct.

The lawsuit also claims that this is not the first time Bayer has been guilty of misrepresenting the safety profile of the Mirena® IUD. In 2009, Bayer was contacted by the Department of Health and Human Services’ Division of Drug Marketing, Advertising, and Communications for making unfounded claims about the Mirena® IUD device while failing to mention its risks in its “Simple Style” program.
