A number of women throughout the United States who received Mirena IUD for birth control have experienced serious complications where the implanted device punctures or perforates the uterus, or migrates through the intra-abdominal cavity. The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are evaluating the potential for Mirena litigation on behalf of women who have experienced problems with the IUD.
Although Mirena was promoted as a worry-free and hassel-free form of birth control, which is supposed to be safely removed after up-to five years, it has been associated with a number of serious complications, including:
Our Mirena lawyers are investigating whether women may be entitled to financial compensation as a result of the manufacturer’s failure to adequately warn about the risk of Mirena perforation, where the device punctures or embeds in the uterine wall. This can lead to infections, internal scarring and the need for surgery to repair or address the problems.
In some cases, the Mirena IUD may migrate through the uterine wall, causing serious intestinal problems or other internal injuries, including damage to other organs.
Although the litigation for Mirena remains in the very early stages of review and evaluation, potential cases are currently being considered for women throughout the United States who have experienced recent Mirena problems.
