The side effects of the intrauterine contraceptive medical device have proven to cause serious injuries to woman, some of which can even be life-threatening. When a patient is injured, it can give rise to a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the medical device. These defective Mirena lawsuits often result in significant settlements. Additionally, in the unfortunate event a loved one dies due to complications from the device, the surviving family members may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
What is Mirena?
Mirena intrauterine device (IUD) is a small T-shaped plastic device that is inserted into the uterus and acts as a long lasting contraceptive. It must be inserted by a trained health care provider and is intended to provide contraceptive protection for up to five years. However, even though it is known to be an effective contraceptive device, in recent years there have been a number of studies that reported several side effects to patients who have had the IUD implanted. In fact, in 2010 the United States Food & Drug Administration sent a warning letter to Bayer, the manufacture of Mirena, stating that its Mirena campaign overstated the efficacy of the device, presented unsubstantial claims, and minimized the risks of Mirena for promotional purposes.
Mirena Lawsuits For Uterine Wall Perforations
Uterine wall perforations is one of the most dangerous side effects of Mirena IUD. Some of the other common dangerous side effects also include ectopic pregnancy, infertility, and other serious complications. Mirena can harm the uterus because it can migrate from its original position after being inserted, embedding itself in the uterus or damaging the uterine wall. This can lead to further complications such as infection, intestinal obstruction, organ damage, and internal scarring. These scenarios require a doctor to locate the IUD and surgically remove it. Depending on the extent of damage to the uterus, a complete hysterectomy may be required to correct the problem.
Patients suffering serious complications and injuries after having a Mirena IUD implanted, including uterine wall perforations, ectopic pregnancy, or infertility do have legal rights and may have a possible lawsuit against Bayer, the manufacturer of Mirena. In fact, due to Bayer’s failure to warn individuals of the defective nature of their medical equipment, they may be held liable for those who suffer complications.
