How Will I Pay for a MIRENA LAWYER?
Our office is investigating MIRENA LAWSUITS on a contingency fee basis. We are only paid if we recover a monetary award or settlement on behalf of a person injured through use of the MIRENA IUD. Do you need more information?
Was there a MIRENA RECALL or MARKET WITHDRAWAL?
No, there has not been any official MIRENA RECALL by either the manufacturer or the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Our office is monitoring the growing number of lawsuits and will provide any update regarding a formal recall or market withdrawal of the MIRENA INTRAUTERINE SYSTEM. At this time, there are simply lawsuits alleging personal injuries.
Why are there MIRENA INJURY LAWSUITS?
Reportedly, up to 2 Million Women have used the MIRENA IUD in the United States. There are a growing number of lawsuits alleging personal injuries from MIRENA SIDE EFFECTS. These MIRENA SIDE EFFECT LAWSUITS involve allegations of:
- Migration of the MIRENA IUD from the uterus into other areas of the body or female anatomy.
- Embedment of the MIRENA IUD requiring surgical removal, including complications and scarring from surgery.
- Perforation by the MIRENA IUD leading to surgery, complications and scarring.
- Disabilities following embedment, migration or perforation by the MIRENA IUD.
The MIRENA INTRAUTERINE DEVICE has gained significant attention in 2013, with mounting lawsuits and the revelation that it has been the subject of over 45,700 adverse event reports to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. This number has been reported by Adverse Events, Redefining Drug Safety
. Additional information, from Adverse Events, Redefining Drug Safety
is available at www.AdverseEvents.com
Whether this number of adverse event reports to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration constitute a 'red flag', or a signaled safety concerns, for the manufacturer, will certainly be explored during ongoing litigation and related lawsuits. Arguably, if accurate, this data reflects a significant number of adverse events being reported involving BAYER'S MIRENA IUD in the United States.
Have there been FDA WARNINGS Involving the MIRENA IUD or LEVONORGESTREL INTRAUTERINE SYSTEM?
Yes, there have been a series of FDA WARNING LETTERS directed the manufacturer, BAYER, as a result of their direct to consumer promotion of the MIRENA IUD. Essentially, these FDA WARNING LETTERS warned the manufacturer about their marketing of the product without warning of risks, underplaying potential risks, overstating the effectiveness of the product, the presentation of unsubstantiated claims and false or misleading representations. Additional information on the FDA WARNING LETTERS is available by request from our office.
