Mirena Lawsuit Overview

Mirena Lawsuit Settlement  Overview

Over 2  million  women have been implanted with the Mirena IUD birth control device  manufactured by Bayer Pharmaceuticals. Right now there are  Mirena IUD lawsuits  consolidated under U.S. District Judge Cathy Seibel in White Plains, New York. There are another more  Mirena IUD lawsuits pending in New Jersey state courts and potentially thousands of  additional lawsuit filings  expected.

Mirena  IUD Lawsuit MDL Status Conference

The first status conference in the MDL happened on May 17, 2013.  At the hearing  U.S. District Judge Cathy Seibel asked that some women be appointed to leadership positions. “I think that’s important,” she said, adding that “female attorneys could relate to [plaintiffs’] challenges and promote that empathy to a judge or jury.”

The lawyer for defending  Bayer is a woman, with more female lawyers expected to be assigned. Representatives from Bayer told the judge that they are prepared to “vigorously defend itself against these claims,” and that they “have a lot of faith in [their] warnings.” They explain that the packaging material warns of “spontaneous migration,” and point out that the product is still on the market with no past history of recalls.

MDL Mirena IUD Bellwether Trials To Begin Shortly

The plaintiffs claim that the Mirena IUD has caused side effects, such as uterine perforation, and device migration . Women have developed Mirena IUD infertility due to uterine perforation and organ damage. Many claimants required  surgery to remove the device. Mirena lawyers say that  Bayer’s warnings only pertain to incidents that occur during implantation,  not uterine perforation that occurs five years down the road.

Allegations Against Bayer For The Mirena IUD Include:

  • Defective design
  • Defective manufacturing
  • Product Negligence
  • Failure to warn about the device
  • Strict liability
  • Breach of express warranty
  • Breach of implied warranty
  • Fraudulent concealment
  • Fraudulent misrepresentation

The amount of compensation rendered in product liability  settlements or jury awards will depend upon the specific facts presented in each Mirena injury case. The courts will look at the severity of the Mirena IUD injury, the extent to which the plaintiff was aware of the risks associated with the device, as well as the physical, emotional and financial burden placed upon the plaintiff and her loved ones. Bellwether trials will offer base for these negotiated settlements.
