Mirena IUD Compensation Attorney

Mirena IUD Compensation

The intrauterine device (IUD) has often been promoted as a way to make its users’ lives easier – by reducing period-related symptoms; allowing pregnancies to be planned and timed; and eliminating the need to remember a daily pill or weekly patch. When the device fails or other devastating side effects occur, however, life-threatening or even deadly injuries can result.

If you’ve been injured by Mirena use, you may wonder whether you have a case and, if so, how much it is worth. While compensation for each injured person depends on that person’s circumstances, the law allows injured Mirena patients to seek monetary damages from any negligent person or company responsible for their injuries. To learn more, don’t hesitate to call the defective medical device attorneys at Farah & Farah today.

Compensatory Damages

“Compensatory” damages are available in nearly every Mirena case, once the injured patient and attorney have established that another party’s negligence caused harm. Compensatory damages are so named because they are meant to compensate the injured person for the harm caused. They typically come in two forms: economic and non-economic damages.

Economic damages, also called “actual” damages, are typically amounts that can be calculated by examining receipts, bills, invoices, pay stubs, and similar evidence. For a person injured by a Mirena IUD, they may include reimbursement for past medical bills related to having the device removed and treating any conditions it caused, like uterine wall perforation or reproductive cycle damage. They may also include damages to cover future medical bills, such as the costs of ongoing treatments for cancer linked to Mirena use. They also include amounts for wages and benefits lost when the injured person had to skip work for medical reasons, or if the damage is so severe the person becomes unable to keep working.

Non-economic damages aren’t typically calculated by examining the bills. Instead, they cover less-numerical but still very real losses like pain and suffering, mental anguish, and the loss or limitation of ability to enjoy life. When a Mirena IUD causes harm that destroys fertility, for instance, the damages for this loss will likely be considered non-economic.
