Lawsuit Filed Against Bayer Over Alleged Mirena® IUD Injuries

Filed March 1st, 2013 admin

An Arizona woman has filed a lawsuit against Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals Inc., alleging that her Mirena® IUD caused serious injuries, including a uterine perforation that forced her to undergo laparoscopic surgery. The lawsuit was filed in the Superior Court of New Jersey Law Division, Morris County.

The woman, who is being defended by the national law firm, Parker Waichman LLP, alleges that she received the Mirena® IUD in August 2008 and appeared to tolerate the procedure well, as there was little evidence to suggest that the device had perforated her uterus. However, last February her physician was unable to find the Mirena® IUD’s strings and the device could not be located in an ultrasound. A CT scan of the pelvis found that Mirena® IUD had moved outside of the uterus.

The woman alleges severe and permanent physical injuries, substantial pain and suffering, and economic damages. She also charges that the damages are a direct result of Bayer’s negligence and wrongful conduct and claims Bayer never warned her about the risk of spontaneous migration associated with the Mirena® IUD.

The lawsuit points out that this is not the first time Bayer has been accused of concealing the whole truth about the Mirena® IUD. In 2009, Bayer was contacted by the Department of Health and Human Services’ Division of Drug Marketing, Advertising, and Communications (DDMAC) for making unfounded claims about the device while failing to speak of its risks.
