Women who have experienced complications and side effects caused by the intrauterine device (“IUD”) Mirena used for birth control may be eligible to file a lawsuit and seek compensation for their injuries. Mirena lawsuits filed by women who were hurt after using the birth control device have alleged that patients were not properly warned about the risk of complications and side effects from the IUD.
Health officials in the U.S. and Canada have cautioned that the use of Mirena may increase a woman’s risk of a number of serious complications and side effects, including uterine perforation, infections, pelvic inflammatory disease, adhesions, or other conditions requiring surgery to remove the IUD. Women who become pregnant while using a Mirena IUD are also significantly more likely to suffer a miscarriage or an ectopic pregnancy.
Our law firm, Heygood, Orr & Pearson, represents women who have been injured by a number of birth control products including Mirena and birth control pills such as Yaz and Yasmin. Our firm has successfully worked to achieve verdicts and settlements for our clients totaling more than $200 million, including settlements of more than $50 million in 2012 alone.
Women who have suffered uterine perforation or other internal injuries from Mirena and women who have suffered complications during pregnancy, or who were forced to undergo a hysterectomy or other types of surgery to repair injuries caused by Mirena may be eligible to file a case.
