Parker Waichman LLP Files Lawsuit Over Allegations Mirena IUD® Caused Woman Serious Injuries

Filed February 28th, 2013 admin

An Arkansas woman who endured serious injuries allegedly due to the Mirena® Intrauterine Device (IUD), has filed a lawsuit against Bayer Healthcare, 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 was implanted with the Mirena® IUD in November 2007 and appeared to tolerate the initial procedure well. In January 2011, the woman returned to her doctor and asked that the Mirena® IUD be removed so she could attempt pregnancy. The doctor was unable to remove the Mirena® IUD because he could no longer find the strings.

The woman underwent a hysteroscopy, which failed to reveal the Mirena® IUD. Finally, a CT scan of her abdomen and pelvis revealed that the Mirena® IUD was present along the right side of her uterus. The woman had to undergo laparoscopic surgery in October 2011 to retrieve the Mirena® IUD. The lawsuit alleges that woman suffered injuries and damages that are a direct result of Bayer’s negligence and wrongful conduct. She is suing for substantial pain and suffering, severe and permanent physical injuries, and economic damages.

The suit also mentions that this is not the first time Bayer has been accused of misrepresenting the Mirena® IUD device. The Department of Health and Human Services’ Division of Drug Marketing, Advertising, and Communications (DDMAC) contacted Bayer in 2009 for making unfounded claims about the device while failing to reference its risks.
