The defective medical device legal team at the personal injury law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. is now actively accepting Mirena IUD cases for women who have allegedly suffered uterine perforations, serious bleeding, ectopic pregnancy, infertility, or other complications from the medical device.
Mirena intrauterine device (IUD) is a small t-shaped plastic device that is inserted into the uterus and acts as a long acting contraceptive. The Mirena IUD was promoted by the manufacturer, Bayer, as a safe and effective method of birth control, however, in recent years many woman who have had the device implanted have suffered from many complications or uterine perforation. In fact, in 2010 the FDA sent a warning letter to Bayer stating that its Mirena promotions overstated the efficacy of the device, presented unsubstantial claims, and minimized the risk of the IUD for promotional purposes.
Patient suffering from serious complications after having a the IUD implanted do have legal rights and may have a possible Mirena IUD lawsuit against the manufacturer Bayer. In fact, due to Bayer’s failure to warn patients of the alleged defective nature of the medical equipment, or allegedly “minimize” the risk of Mirena to patients, they may be held liable for those who suffer injuries.
Although any of the alleged complications resulting from the device are dangerous, uterine wall perforations is one of the most common alleged side effects of Mirena IUD. This can happen when the device migrates from its original position after being inserted, and embedding itself in the uterus or perforating the uterus wall. Another common and serious alleged complication is the need for a doctor or surgeon to surgically remove the device. This would also be due to the IUD device migrating from its original position.
