Plaintiffs Claim Device Flaws Resulted in Serious Injuries
Some women who received Mirena intrauterine devices are alleging that the devices possessed substantial design and labeling flaws that resulted in serious complications and injuries. As Bloomberg BNA reports, the plaintiffs claim that these devices can perforate the uterus and migrate to other organs. The plaintiffs also contend that the maker of the devices, Bayer Healthcare, warned about the risk of perforation during implantation but failed to advise patients that this outcome could occur after a successful implant procedure.
According to the report, in the first two Mirena IUD cases to be heard, the plaintiffs allege that they discovered serious issues with their IUDs after implantation. One woman learned that the device had moved outside of her uterus when she attempted to have it surgically removed. The other woman became unexpectedly pregnant and subsequently found that the IUD had migrated into her abdominal cavity. Both women are now seeking punitive as well as compensatory damages for these alleged injuries, the website reported.
How a Florida Mirena IUD Side Effects Lawyer Can Help
Medical device makers have a duty to provide safe products. If there are risks of harm associated with their products, they also must provide adequate warnings. If a device maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.
People injured by defective medical devices may be eligible to recover money for:
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Pain and Suffering
The families of those who have died may be eligible to recover money for funeral expenses and the pain that comes with losing a loved one.
