Mirena Lawsuit Attorney

Serving Nationwide

Mirena is abirth control product, which is reversible, commonly used by women because it is long acting. Mirena is an IUD, which is a hormonal intrauterine device that is T-shaped. The T-shaped part of the device is made of polyethylene plastic. There is a cylinder-shaped reservoir that outlines the vertical area of the T, which is make of levonorgestrel and silicone. The horizontal part of the T is referred to as the arms and holds the device securely in place in a woman’s uterus. The device is implanted in the uterus and is effective by a birth control hormone known as levonorgestrel. The hormone is released slowly into the uterus over a period of time. This form of birth control releases lower levels of hormones than oral birth control because it is released straight into the uterus. Women who used Mirena would receive 20 mcg of levonorgestrel each day, but the dose will decrease over the recommended period of five years. Mirena is 99% effective in preventing unwanted pregnancies for a period of five years.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Mirena for effective birth control use in 2000, and 2009 Mirena was approved by the FDA to treat heavy blood flow during menstrual cycles in women who already use an IUD for birth control. However, in December of 2009 the FDA warned Bayer that it was in direct violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. The FDA recommended Mirena for women who already have children. Most women decided to use Mirena because it is more convenient than oral contraceptives.

Pharmaceutical companies, such as Bayer, are responsible for the injuries that women encountered from using the IUD birth control product.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
