Mirena IUD Lawsuit Center
The Mirena IUD, a birth control device inserted into the uterus through the vagina, has been identified as a possible cause of several dangerous conditions.
The product information for the Mirena IUD also indicates that if a woman becomes pregnant when using the device, her offspring might be at risk of sustaining birth defects.
If you’ve suffered harm resulting from the placement of a Mirena IUD, then you might have a case against Bayer, the manufacturer of the device.
You’ll need to make a claim, though, and your time to do so is limited. Call us now and speak to one of our lawyers, at no cost or risk. We can determine promptly whether you have grounds for a lawsuit.
If you received a Mirena IUD and suffered uterine wall perforations, pelvic inflammatory disease, sepsis, or other dangerous complications, then you might be entitled to compensation for your injuries, including out-of-pocket costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Don’t expect Bayer to volunteer to write you a check, though. You’ll need to demand to be made whole.
