Mirena Lawsuit Overview
Bayer’s IUD product, the Mirena IUD, was marketed to be effective for up to five years with hormone emission, providing permanent birth control during that period and improving a woman’s health and sex life. The product was first released in Europe in 1991 and had been regularly used there for nine years. Mirena became available to U.S. markets with FDA approval in 2000. That said, the Mirena IUD was not without issues. According to FDA reports, there have been more than 45,000 cases of reactions or serious injury that have occurred. The most serious cases involved ectopic pregnancy where a fertilized egg began to grow in the fallopian tube versus the patient’s uterus. Uterus puncture has also been another serious problem.
Because of the number of issues with the Mirena IUD versus the marketing material and literature essentially communicating the product as safe, many women have sued for recovery through the legal system. Bayer as the product manufacturer has tried a number of legal maneuvers, the most significant to consolidate all the cases filed into one jumbo case. However, New Jersey’s State Supreme Court turned down Bayer’s argument recently in January 2013.
Common Questions About Mirena Lawsuits
How much do I have to pay to file a Mirena lawsuit?
Nothing up front. Seeger Weiss represents you via a contingency agreement. This means that we receive payment only if your case settles or wins at trial.
How much is a Mirena case worth?
The monetary value and result of your Mirena lawsuit cannot be determined beforehand. It is highly unethical for an Mirena attorney or Mirena law firm to promise any amount of compensation prior to settlement or completion of trial.
Won’t there be uncomfortable meetings and accusations?
Every legal party sued has the right to examine a plaintiff through the discovery process. However, your representation will protect you from unnecessary requests and attempts at harassment. Additionally, many cases are settled outside of a courtroom in which case you would not have to testify.
Don’t medical lawsuits take years to decide?
Not necessarily. While large companies do have resources to cause legal delays, often they are interested in keeping the cost from being astronomical. If a settlement is possible that meets the needs of a plaintiff and is less than the risk of going to trial, such businesses often choose settlement.
