Do You Qualify to File a Mirena IUD Lawsuit?
About 62% of women in reproductive age currently use contraception. In the past decade the use of the intrauterine device (IUD) has grown to be a more popular choice. Less than 1% of women used this device in 1995; that percentage has increase to about 6% in 2006-2010. As this contraceptive method becomes more popular, the lawsuits against the makers of the Mirena IUD have piled up. (Jones, Mosher, and Daniels, 2012)
Many women have experienced negative and adverse effects from their use of the Mirena IUD and have pursued a lawsuit against the responsible party. Here is a list of possible qualifications for a potential lawsuit or settlement regarding this dangerous product:
- the device was properly inserted by physician,
- you had a follow-up appointment confirming the IUD was in place,
- the IUD spontaneously migrated from original position,
- the migration required laparoscopic surgery to remove the device
- you suffered from uterine perforations,
- the device embedded in your uterus,
- your doctor does not want to remove the IUD, but it has migrated.
