Mirena Class Action Lawsuit Filed in Canada

Staff Writer | May 21st, 2013

Mirena IUD Lawsuit FundingA class action lawsuit has been brought against Bayer Pharmaceuticals in Canada. Bayer is the company responsible for manufacturing and marketing the Mirena IUD, an intrauterine form of birth control. The complaint was filed in Nova Scotia’s Supreme Court. The plaintiff alleged she became pregnant as a result of the device migrating out of position. A number of women in Canada also claim to have experienced complications with the device. Some plaintiffs are seeking Mirena IUD lawsuit funding in order to cover the necessary costs involved in a lengthy legal process.

According to court reports, the plaintiff in this case had been implanted with the Mirena IUD in December 2010. Two years later, she learned of her pregnancy. She required surgery to remove the IUD, after a scan confirmed that the device had moved into the lower area of her cervix.

The class action includes all Canadians who have suffered uterine perforation as a result of the Mirena IUD migrating. A report published in the Halifax Chronicle Herald suggested the number of Canadian women affected by device migration could run into the thousands.

The recent claims closely resemble numerous Mirena IUD lawsuits filed in the United States, each contending that Bayer failed to adequately warn consumers about the potential risks of perforation and migration which, apart from unwanted pregnancy, can severely damage internal organs.

More than 50 lawsuits involving the Mirena IUD have been coordinated as multidistrict litigation (MDL). The MDL is taking place in the Southern District of New York and will include bellwether trials, which are designed to gauge the likely outcomes of future trials.  Hundreds – if not thousands – of Mirena lawsuits are expected to be filed over the coming months. If no settlement is reached, each case will be remanded back to the original court where it was filed for its own trial.
