Mirena IUD Lawsuit Checklist
The Mirena IUD causes many symptoms and complications however, in order to file a Mirena IUD lawsuit your Mirena IUD lawyer will be looking for the following:
1. Mirena IUD must be the product implanted
2. You must have gone to your 4-6 week follow up appointment and your doctor has confirmed that your Mirena IUD was properly implanted.
3. The Mirena IUD has perforated your uterus or other organ. The Mirena must have moved out of position, gravitated and has become embedded in your uterus or an organ and/or there is a perforation injury.
4. This usually means the Mirena , needs to be or will be surgically removed.
A lot of Mirena women either don’t go to follow up appointment or by the time they go to follow up the Mirena has already moved. If that happens this becomes a med mal issue and not a products issue. The statute of limitations starts to run when you knew Mirena perforated an organ.
Of course, consult with your doctor if you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above to see if the Mirena has moved and caused a perforation. Consult with one of our Mirena IUD lawyers to be sure.
We need to hear from you asap. Do not delay. Every state has a statute of limitations.
