FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Memphis Attorney Takes on New Birth Control Complications
Memphis, TN, 4/16/13 — Memphis personal injury lawyer Darrell Castle is accepting cases related to Mirena®, an intrauterine device used to prevent pregnancy for up to five years. Mirena® has been linked to perforation of the uterus after insertion – an extremely dangerous and potentially fatal side effect. Darrell Castle & Associates will begin taking clients injured by Mirena® on April 16, 2013.
A hormonal intrauterine device, Mirena® is classified as a long-acting reversible contraceptive method. The FDA has determined it is also connected to uterine perforation, among other serious side effects.
Uterine perforation can lead to hysterectomy and permanent loss of fertility. It can cause sepsis – a severe blood infection – along with hemorrhaging and organ damage. In some cases uterine perforation can even lead to death.
Roughly 2 million women have had Mirena® inserted by a health care provider in the United States. While any women using Mirena® are at risk of uterine perforation, women especially at risk include those who are breastfeeding, have recently given birth, or who have an inverted uterus.
“These are horrific injuries,” says attorney Darrell Castle. “A lot of these women and their families will need significant medical assistance. I plan to help them cover the high cost of that assistance and get them the compensation they need and deserve.”
Memphis area personal injury firm Darrell Castle & Associates is not new to contraception cases. Attorneys at the firm have represented plaintiffs against Yaz®/Yasmin® and NuvaRing®, both of which led to severe unintended consequences for some consumers. The firm, which clients describe as “very professional, caring and informative” just received the Martindale-Hubbell® Client Distinction Award in April 2013 for responsiveness and quality in serving Memphis area clients.
Women and their families who have suffered from a perforated uterus after using Mirena® may contact Darrell Castle at 901-327-1212 or by email at info(at)darrellcastle.com.
