If you have used the common birth control device, Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Inc.’s Mirena® intrauterine device (IUD) and have suffered from an internal organ injury, then you may have a valid personal injury claim and should consider consulting with an attorney in New York City. Scores of lawsuits have been filed over allegations that the Mirena® intrauterine device migrates after inserting, embedding in the uterus or puncturing organs. The injuries may require the surgical removal of the Mirena® and may lead to other serious injuries or infections. It is estimated that over 2 million women use the Mirena® worldwide, and while at least 125 lawsuits have been filed nationally, this number is expected to rise in the near future. When one seeks contraception from a doctor, there is a high expectation that the method will be beneficial to one’s health. However, if you suffer an injury as a result of taking that birth control then you may be entitled to recover your damages, which includes all of your medical expenses as well as your pain and suffering from the doctor who prescribed the contraception, from the doctor who failed to properly monitor the device and possibly from the company that manufactured the device.
