Yes, you may be able sue Bayer if you file a Mirena lawsuit because Bayer is the manufacturer of the contraceptive IUD device. Since Bayer failed to warn individuals of the defective nature of the medical equipment, or “minimized” the risk of Mirena to patients, they may be held liable for those who suffer complications.
The reasoning behind this is because it is the responsibility of the manufacturer to inform the FDA and the public about the fault and the potential risks of the device, and if they do not, they can be held liable. When a manufacturer places a defective device on the market, and it is not safe for its intended use and causes injury to the prescribed patient, it can give rise to a defective medical device lawsuit. These cases seek fair compensation to patients who have been harmed or injured due to the defective device. Lawsuits filed against the makers can result in significant settlements. If a patient dies due to the defective product, a wrongful death lawsuit may be filed.
