Utah Woman Sues Mirena® IUD for Causing Serious Injuries

Filed March 26th, 2013 edlieber1

A Utah woman has filed a lawsuit alleging that the Mirena® IUD caused her to suffer serious injuries. The suit was filed in the Superior Court of New Jersey Law Division, Morris County, and names Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Inc. as defendants.

According to the complaint, which was brought by the national law firm Parker Waichman LLP, the woman received the Mirena® IUD in January 2011. The lawsuit alleges that she took to the procedure well and there was no reason to suspect that the Mirena® IUD had perforated her uterus. On February 7, 2011, she went to doctor’s office for a follow-up visit and he confirmed that the strings were visible and the device was in its proper place. However, on March 28, 2011, her physician could not see the strings of the Mirena® IUD. An x-ray revealed that the device was in the pelvis overlying the sacrum. In April, the woman underwent laparoscopic surgery to retrieve the Mirena® IUD, which was entrenched in the omentum.

The lawsuit alleges that the device is defective and creates an unreasonable risk of injury to women. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the most serious side effects associated with the Mirena® IUD include perforation of the uterine wall, embedment of the device in the uterine wall, intrauterine pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy, Group A streptococcal sepsis, and pelvic inflammatory disease.

The lawsuit also alleges that Bayer failed to properly warn the woman about the risks, and that her damages are a result of the Defendants’ negligent and wrongful conduct. The woman is suing for severe and permanent physical injuries, substantial pain and suffering, and economic loss.
