Mirena Birth Control
Mirena is a form of birth control that releases hormones into the users’ body. Mirena is an alternative to the traditional birth control pill and is instead an IUD or Intra-Uterine Device. IUDs are small ‘T’ shaped plastic devices that are inserted into the uterus of a woman by a trained physician. Usually, the procedure of inserting an IUD is nonsurgical, and Mirena would be included in this category. The Mirena IUD claims to be over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy for up to 5 years. After the five years are up, it is recommended that you seek a doctor to have the Mirena IUD either replaced or removed. It is also recommended that you have your IUD checked monthly by your primary healthcare provider. Once inserted into the uterus, the Mirena IUD device releases small amounts of a hormone called levonorgestrel into the uterus. The Mirena IUD is considered one of the most effective low-maintenance birth control options. However, recently the birth control product has come under some controversy as it has been linked to a potentially devastating condition called pseudotumor cerebri. This condition has been known to at least cause severe discomfort in those who experience it, and in severe conditions can lead to permanent sight-loss. Fortunately, if you or a loved one have been diagnosed with pseudotumor cerebri as a result of your Mirena IUD, you may be able to file a Mirena birth control brain tumor lawsuit against the company. However, when filing a lawsuit for pseudotumor cerebri, it is important that you understand what the condition does to its victims, and the symptoms the condition may cause.

Mirena IUD Pseudotumor Cerebri Class Action Lawsuit: The Condition
Pseudotumor cerebri is a damaging health condition that occurs when there is an increase in pressure in the skull. The symptoms of this condition tend to mimic those of a brain tumor. However, a further medical inspection will always show that no tumor is present. This condition can occur in children and adults. However, it has been known to occur in users of the Mirena IUD. Listed below are some of the symptoms that pseudotumor cerebri can cause in its victims:

  • Faint ringing in the ears that pulses in synchronous with the heartbeat; also known as pulsatile tinnitus
  • Nausea, vomiting, or dizziness
  • Moderate to severe headaches that occur behind the eyes and can worsen with eye movement
  • Brief periods of blindness, that last a few seconds; affects either one or both of the eyes
  • Difficulty seeing to the side
  • Double vision
  • Seeing flashing lights that aren’t there
  • Neck, shoulder, or back pain

There is still a lot of mystery surrounding what exactly causes pseudotumor cerebri, but medical professionals believe there may be a link to an excess amount of cerebrospinal fluid within the confines of the skull. While the Mirena IUD has been linked to causing this condition, Obesity is also a major contributing factor as it occurs in 1 to 2 obese people out of 100,000. Listed below are some of the conditions and diseases linked to this troubling brain pressure disorder:

  • Lupus
  • Kidney disease
  • Anemia
  • Addison’s disease
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Sleep apnea
  • Uremia
  • Underactive parathyroid glands
  • Blood-clotting disorders
  • Bechet’s syndrome

In severe cases of pseudotumor cerebri, victims can experience worsening vision, and if left untreated or unresolved can lead to permanent blindness. For this reason, if you or a loved one have been diagnosed with pseudotumor cerebri as a result of using the Mirena IUD you have every right to file a lawsuit for financial compensation. However, as mentioned prior it is in your best interest that you seek the representation of a skilled Mirena birth control pseudotumor cerebri lawsuit attorney to guide you through the process of taking on this large birth control company.

Mirena IUD Pseudotumor Cerebri Class Action & Personal Injury Lawsuits
If you have been diagnosed with pseudotumor cerebri as a result of using the Mirena IUD, you have every right to pursue legal action against the manufacturing company responsible for developing the Mirena IUD. However, taking on these large medical companies can be somewhat challenging, as in most cases they have the resources to employ a whole host of legal experts who are committed to disputing your case. This is why many victims have gone on to file a Mirena IUD pseudotumor cerebri class action lawsuit against the Mirena development company for failing to advertise the health risks caused by the birth control alternative. Under a class action lawsuit, you can join other victims and their legal assistance in fighting for compensation for the damages caused by this product. However, class action lawsuits have their drawbacks, as the more people added to the suit, the smaller the potential compensation payout becomes. If you or a loved one are looking for adequate compensation for your damages caused by the Mirena IUD, you can also pursue a legal action on your own. Through your injury lawsuit, and with the help of a legal expert from a Mirena IUD pseudotumor cerebri law firm, you may be able to receive adequate compensation from the Mirena manufacturing company.

However, whether you are pursuing a class action lawsuit or a lawsuit on your own, you must be able to prove where the defect in the Mirena medical product occurred. As with most medical products, there are a lot of companies involved in taking the product from the design floor to the pharmacist’s shelf. Identifying where this defect occurred can be a crucial point in receiving a positive outcome for your case. Listed below are some of the key areas where product defects more than likely occur:

  • Design Defects: These are the defects that can occur before the product is sent to the assembly line. The defects that occur in this stage of production are faults that make the product inherently dangerous. In most cases, these defects can lead to full-scale product recalls, and the company which organized the design of the product could be held liable for the damages.
  • Manufacturing Defects: These defects typically occur on the assembly line of the product. They can range from minor mistakes along the manufacturing chain to reoccurring mistakes that can result in wide-spread recalls. In these instances, the manufacturing company could be deemed responsible for the damages.
  • Marketing Defects: These defects occur during the marketing of a specific product. These defects include things like improper labeling, insufficient instructions, or inadequate safety warnings.

Once you have been able to prove where the defect occurred, you must be able to show them that the company’s negligent actions directly led to your damages. Under product liability law, manufacturing companies are expected to keep defective products out of the hands of consumers. However, if a consumer does get a defective product, that consumer has every right to seek legal consultation to help them prove the negligent actions of the manufacturing company. Bulleted below are the key components that must be proven in every claim of negligence:

  • Duty: The plaintiff (injured or damaged party) must be able to show that the defendant (manufacturing company) owed a legal duty to the plaintiff under the particular circumstances of the case.
  • Breach: The plaintiff must be able to show that the defendant breached said legal duty through specific actions or failing to act appropriately
  • Causation: The plaintiff must be able to show that the defendant’s actions or lack thereof caused the plaintiff’s injuries
  • Damages: The plaintiff must be able to show that they endured some specific damages. This can usually be shown through the presentation of medical records, a loss of wages, or a loss of potential income.

As mentioned prior, taking on large medical manufacturing companies like those that produce the Mirena IUD can be incredibly challenging, if not impossible if done alone. Having the right attorney on your side can make the difference between collecting compensation for your damages, and having your case dismissed from court entirely.
