Tudor v. Bayer Corporation et al
Nova Scotia Supreme Court File: Hfx No. 414709
Wagners filed a proposed class proceeding on behalf of residents of Canada who claim to have suffered personal injuries allegedly as a result of the Mirena Intrauterine System, a birth control device manufactured by Bayer. The action was filed on April 23, 2013 in the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia in Halifax.
In 2009, the FDA issued a warning to Bayer for overstating the effectiveness of Mirena, while minimizing the risks associated with it. Among these alleged risks is uterine perforation which can necessitate the need for surgical removal.
If you or someone you know has suffered from uterine perforation allegedly as a result of having received a Mirena IUD, you may wish to contact Wagners.
Patients using the Mirena IUD should consult with their physician should they have any concerns with regard to continuing or discontinuing their use of the Mirena IUD.
Wagners is presently accepting enquiries from residents of Canada who have been implanted with the Mirena IUD birth control device and have suffered injuries or damages.
If you, or a member of your family, have suffered injuries as a result of the use of the Mirena IUD, and losses have resulted, you may be eligible for inclusion as a Class Member in our proposed class action lawsuit.
