Mirena Lawsuit Funding Can Level the Playing Field Against Bayer

Lawsuit Funding Couple Read PaperIn federal and state courts, one Mirena IUS story after another is being told by the women who used this popular product only to suffer serious injury. One of the most aggressively marketed and widely used contraceptives in the world, the Mirena IUS (intrauterine system), is the subject of over 1,800 lawsuits filed by women whose complaints center around injuries caused by a spontaneous migration or shifting of the Mirena device IUS.

Intended to be a hassle free contraceptive device effective for five years, Mirena has caused injuries including intestinal perforations, obstructions, abscesses, adhesions, infection, ectopic pregnancies, and infertility.

 Families battered financially by Mirena injuries

Many of the women filing suit are working women or mothers whose families’ financial lives have been upended by medical bills, missed work, jobs and income permanently lost due to an inability to perform, and in some cases, unexpected pregnancies. These women and their families now face a protracted court battle with its powerful pharmaceutical manufacturer, Bayer Pharmaceutical, which has stated that it intends to defend its product in court.

There is another group of lawsuits being filed against Bayer brought by women who have suffered non-stroke neurological conditions from Mirena use, such as pseudotumor cerebri (PTC), which is also known as idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH). Lawyers representing the plaintiffs indicate that they are prepared to file complaints on behalf of at least 65 other women who have experienced similar brain problems after receiving Mirena IUS birth control.

PTC develops when cerebrospinal fluid levels become elevated. This causes increased pressure in the skull, acting like a tumor. Victims develop severe migraines, double vision, temporary blindness, vision loss symptoms, swelling of the optic disk, and ringing in the ears known as tinnitus.

Mirena lawsuit funding

If you are a victim of the Mirena IUS, you may be severely underestimating the time it will take to settle your case. For the 500 plaintiffs currently in the Mirena multidistrict litigation, the first bellwether cases —a handful of early trials set up to determine how juries will react to the testimony–are not even scheduled until September 2015. Bayer’s intentions are clear—they will defend their product in the courts and have the patience and legal muscle to do so.

Until then, out-of-pocket expenses, including medical bills and legal fees, are eating away at your savings while you grapple with lost wages and the inability to work. Worse, the expenses may be pushing you toward default on your mortgage or foreclosure.
