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:
Timely notification requirements assert that if a victim doesn’t file their claim on time — or with appropriate, often hard-to-understand legalese — then the victim automatically loses their ability to make a claim. Regardless of who was at fault or extent of the victim’s injury, your case can be forfeited. Failure to handle these deadline requirements appropriately can compromise your case.
