We also represent women nationwide who have experienced serious complications and have been forced to undergo additional surgeries due to undisclosed and dangerous side effects from their Mirena IUD or surgical mesh.

Legal Rights of the Injured

The law in most states provides individuals with legal claims and the right to compensation for injuries they suffer as a result of a defective product or the negligence of another. The injured person may file a lawsuit seeking compensation for his or her pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost past and future wages and punitive damages.

Damages Available in Injury Lawsuits

Damages sought against negligent medical device and product manufacturers for producing and selling products with safety defects and health dangers include general and compensatory damages for:

  • Past and future physical pain and suffering, mental anguish and physical impairment;
  • Past and future medical, incidental and hospital expenses;
  • Past and future loss of earnings and earning capacity;
  • Punitive damages; and
  • Wrongful death when the victim was killed.
