Florida Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Mirena IUD

Patients choose to get a Mirena IUD for many reasons. Some know that the time isn't right to start a family, while others already have one or more children. Some choose the Mirena IUD because it is designed to be easy to use; some choose it because friends and family report good experiences with it or similar devices; and some choose it because its time-release hormones bring relief from painful, irregular, or heavy periods. And many people who pick the Mirena IUD from among their many contraception or hormone-treatment options do so for some combination of these reasons.

No patient chooses a Mirena IUD knowing that its use has been linked to serious medical complications, like uterine wall perforation, pelvic inflammatory disease, sepsis, or reproductive cancers. Unfortunately, many Mirena users have faced these consequences. If you're one of them, you may wish to seek compensation for your injuries and to hold any negligent parties accountable for the harm you've suffered. The Florida Mirena IUD attorneys at Farah & Farah can advocate for your rights.

Mirena IUD Complications

The Mirena IUD, manufactured by Bayer AG, is a small "T"-shaped device inserted into the uterus. It releases low levels of hormones to regulate the menstrual cycle, and it has also been used to treat heavy or painful periods in some patients.

Under ideal circumstances, the IUD may remain in place for up to five years, but complications can require the device to be removed sooner - as well as causing serious medical problems, including:

  • intrauterine pregnancy that may lead to birth defects;
  • ectopic pregnancy;
  • perforation of the uterus or cervix;
  • pelvic inflammatory disease (PID);
  • reproductive cancers;
  • sepsis, a serious bacterial infection;
  • irregular or breakthrough periods;
  • ovarian cysts;
  • vaginitis; and
  • severe pain in the pelvic area or increased period pain.

For some Mirena IUD users, symptoms like severe pain or irregular periods are the first sign that something is wrong. For others, no signs of a problem may appear until a catastrophic event leads to life-threatening complications. No matter which path your Mirena IUD complications followed, you have the right to seek compensation.

What Compensation May Be Available?

When a Mirena IUD has caused serious harm, compensation may cover a wide range of financial and other losses related to the injuries or illness. Damages that are frequently covered by compensation include losses for:

  • medical bills, including follow-up care, surgeries, medication, and rehabilitation;
  • long-term care if needed to treat or manage a disability or condition;
  • lost wages, including wages lost when a disability prevents working in the long term;
  • pain and suffering;
  • loss or impairment of a mental or physical ability;
  • loss of consortium or the care and guidance of a child; and
  • replacement services for household chores, childcare, or other duties that the injured person can no longer perform at home.
