Women who have suffered as a result of Mirena uterus perforation or other Mirena injuries or complications such as infections, device migration, and surgical removal of Mirena may be eligible to recover substantial compensation for their damages. Mirena is an IUD (intrauterine device) that a doctor places in a woman’s uterus to prevent pregnancy. Though the maker of Mirena, Bayer, touted the product as a safer alternative to other methods of birth control, many women have suffered devastating injuries when Mirena dislodged from its intended position and perforated the uterus or other organs. If you have suffered Mirena uterine perforation, the dangerous drug lawyers at Arentz Law Group, P.C. can help you pursue full and just compensation for your damages.
Mirena IUD is a small, T-shaped device that is implanted into the uterus to prevent pregnancy. According to the maker of this product, Bayer, the risk of Mirena uterus perforation is highest during insertion. This is estimated to occur in roughly 1 of every 1,000 insertions and is usually immediately apparent to the doctor so he or she is able to take swift action to minimize any damage. However, many women have experienced Mirena uterine perforation months or even years after implantation with the IUD. This can lead to severe pain, infection, and even possible permanent infertility.
Mirena uterus perforation can be partial or complete. When a woman suffers a partial uterus perforation, only a part of the IUD becomes lodged in the uterine wall. With a complete Mirena IUD uterus perforation, the device passes through the uterus into the peritoneal cavity, where it can go on to cause damage to the intestines and large and small bowels.
Across the United States, women who have suffered the devastating effects of Mirena uterus perforation are coming forward to file Mirena lawsuits to hold Bayer accountable for their injuries. Many of these women claim that if they had been properly warned of the risk of uterus perforation associated with Mirena, they would have opted for a different method of birth control. If you have suffered Mirena uterus perforation or other Mirena injuries or complications, you have the right to pursue just compensation for your emotional, physical, and financial damages.
