Average Mirena Case Settlement – Value of a Lawsuit

Average Mirena Case Settlement – Value of a Lawsuit The Mirena IUD is a contraceptive birth control device used by thousands of women across the country. Our law firm receives numerous inquiries from women who have suffered serious medical complications due to the use of defective Mirena implants. One of the most common questions asked by prospective clients to our attorneys is, “What is the value of my case?” or “What is the average settlement amount for Mirena claims.” The estimated value of a case involving defective medical devices is predicated on numerous factors unique to the individual including the extent and severity of the injury, lost wages and loss of future income, pain and suffering associated with injury,  and whether there is a requirement for future medical procedures and rehabilitation care. A more comprehensive analysis of your case by a trained legal representative is necessary to determine an estimated value of your specific case.

The Mirena IUD has been linked to instances of pseudotumor cerebri in individuals who use it. Scientists have evaluated numerous cases and determined that there is a marked increase in likelihood between the two factors. The article stated that Mirena IUD users were seven times more likely to develop pseudotumor cerebri. Pseudotumor cerebri is a condition that affects many different kinds of people, but it is most commonly seen in overweight women who are at child-bearing age. It is named such because it mimics the symptoms of a brain tumor (pseudo means fake or false); pressure on the cranium is increased for no reason, leading to effects that come from seemingly no cause. A tumor would put pressure on the skull and nerves; pseudotumor cerebri also causes the same pressure, which can extend to the optic nerve and ear canal. Eventually, blindness can set in from the amount of pressure being placed on the nerve, and treatment options become limited. A Mirena IUD should not have any effect on vision or cranium pain. If you feel any pain that mimics symptoms of a migraine, cluster headache, or similar, contact a doctor immediately and bring up your IUD. You will be adequately informed of the next step from there.

Factors in Determining the Estimated Value of Your Case

Severity and Extent of Injuries Suffered: A calculation of current and future medical costs is one of the most important factors in determining the value of your case. Medical expenses will be based on medical diagnosis by a trained physician, medical bills, hospitalizations, and necessity for medication, future medical procedures, and rehabilitation care.

Lost Wages and Loss of Future Income: Victims of defective contraceptive medical devices are entitled to full recoveries for loss of wages and a loss of future income due to their inability to work. A vocational expert will be able to calculate not only the monetary amount an individual has lost but also any future loss or reduction in income due to disabilities or inability to work in the same field. Life Impact: Impact on your life is a significant factor in determining the value of your case. Questions that will be asked and must be determined by a jury regarding life impact include:
  • How has the injury you suffered changed you?
  • How has your life been different as a result of this accident?
  • What are you not able to enjoy any longer?
Such answers require not only psychological evaluations and expert testimony but specific stories from the injured party, such as detailing how this injury has changed your sexual relationship. These are all facts that should be recorded in a journal where possible. Pain and Suffering: In most jurisdictions in the United States pain and suffering is calculated on a per diem basis. That is a jury must evaluate and then place a daily monetary value or your level of suffering including emotional distress. The jury will then multiply that number by the amount of days you are expected to experience pain and suffering. So, for example, a jury places a daily value for pain and suffering of $500.00 per day, multiplied by 1,500 days. Thus, the value for pain and suffering will amount to $750,000.

Maximizing the Value of My Case

So, how do you increase the value of your case? Through our experience, we have identified several key factors needed to boost or increase your personal injury settlement.
  • Medical Reports: Make sure the law firm representing you will submit full medical reports to insurance carriers and at fault parties. It is important that your medical reports be evaluated properly
  • Assess future medical complications: It is important that you make sure you have fully healed. It most cases it is not advised to start settlement negotiations until you have reached a full or maximum healing potential.
  • Be prepared to file: While this is not always the case, your attorney needs to be prepared to file a lawsuit. Filing a lawsuit is not the same as filing a claim with the insurance carrier.

I was given the Mirena iud in 2002 upon wanting to get it removed in 2008 just after the five years o was told it was in bedded in my uterine wall and could only be removed surgically but that it wasn’t doing any harm so I could just leave it on there well it has done harm I have not had a period sin e 2002 I am infertile and was told that since I already had children that that shouldn’t be a burden not sure if I can still file a lawsuit or if it’s been to long I just found out about this lawsuit and the problems with Mirena


I just had a pap done yesterday. july 22.
I also had my mirena examined because i mentioned that i no longer felt a string but could feel something poking out under the skin above the opening of my cervix. I had my mirena implanted in Aug 2009 and was told that if it’s in place that it should be good for another year. However My Mirena Iud had no visible string and the nurse practitioner in the middle of my pap/examination asked if i every planned to have anymore children. I said not for awhile. It was a random question. She finished the exam and told me that if i want to let one of the other Drs find the string and try pulling it out that i could try that because she could not find it. But i made a point to tell her i was not comfortable with a male dr. especially because the dr. that she wanted to help locate the strings was Dr. Masse.
Dr. Masse was the Dr. who inserted my IUD and had been my OB dr. I do not trust Dr masse . because he did not listen to my concerns during my pregnancy despite having painful braxton Hicks contractions and heavy bleeding at 35 weeks. My son was born with maconium in the amniotic fluid and the dr. did not tell me this. Or that my son also needed oxygen. I had pain during my pregnancy from 23 weeks to 38weeks when my son was then born. Dr masse ignored my concerned . He told me i was just small and this was normal if the the baby moved. Beyond everything…my son was born with a rare brain disorder called schitzencephly and has cerebral palsy I simply do not trust Dr. masse. …the Dr that she wanted to help find the strings.
Anyways after the pap/mirana examination i noticed a bloody cotton swab on the table hat the nurse practitioner had then quickly thrown away into the garbage. I noticed it before she did and I asked if that blood came from me. Her response was to pick some random object up and asked if that was what i had been referring to …I said “no you just through it in the garbage” so she opened the garbage lid and picked up the cotton swab and said “you mean this”? I said “yes” and she said it was nothing to worry about. I was concerned because it looked like fresh bright red blood covering this huge cotton swab after she was digging around looking for the string.
So the exam was over and she let me know that i will here back with the result of my pap soon and i will need an ultrasound to locate the device and that i will be receiving a call to schedule the ultrasound appointment.

Today i received the call to schedule my ultrasound and i scheduled it for next Thursday July/30th at 2:00 and have been instructed to have a full bladder for a vaginal and tummy ultrasound. The lady on the phone told me that I should just let the Dr take care of taking out my mirena here (In Marintte Wi at Bay Area Medical Hospital) instead of going to (Green bay wisconsin) which less than an hour drive. She said that after the ultra sound If the mirena didn’t fall out (which i know it did not because i can feel a hard pointy piece poking under my skin above my cervix opening) …she said if it’s there and didn’t fall out that i could just simply go to the hospital here and be “sedated” because if the dr. has to “search” for it ….then that will be better for me the patient. I again stated that I would like to go to Green bay …I did not mention my distrust to the women on the phone or the nurse practitioner i simply stated i do not want a male dr.
I’m not sure if there are things i should watch for to build my case? I’m confident the medical staff is aware that they will have a lawsuit on there hands already at this point and will take steps to distinguish the evidence either by placing blame on me some how or by not stating the true findings in the future medical reports


I just had my original Mirena removed and another one put in. I had not heard of these problems until recently. In January my eye dr became concerned with the pressure in one of my eyes. I had a ultrasound and nothing was odd. I have low blood pressure but I’ve been gaining weight constantly. Now my eye with the pressure issues continues to get worse. I retain water at a crazy level and if I fly, it’s really bad.


I believe I have suffered from from the MIRENA and still. Vision loss and been seeing a Rheumotoligist for mixed connective tissue disorder that was more,likely induced by the Mirena. Please contact me. I have loss time from work and still suffering from quality of life.


I had to mirena placed in 2007-2012 then had another one put right back in. I’m 2013 I was diagnosed with pseudotumor cerebri, and Idiopathic intracranial hypertension. I’ve had to have a lumbar shunt placed in my spin to drain the excess fluid i must have this for the rest of my life the
saw a commercial this morning that the merina has been linked to causing these problems


I received a Mirena IUD in 2010 and had it removed roughly a year after due to heavy discharge, bloating and discomfort. In 2014 I had an ovarian cyst to rupture that that I was totally unaware of, and in the past 6 months have struggled with severe water weight gain and cysts. Every day is a struggle, I gave a constant period at this point. My gyno says there is no organic reason she can see that us causing this, all of my blood work is good. After researching the iud further I am beginning to think my problems are a result of this.


I had the mirena for 3 years. I had a regular period every month during that time. Every year I got it checked at my gynecologists office and i was told it was in place. This past January was my annual checkup and they told my my mirena was in place. A month ago, I became pregnant. Three weeks into my pregnancy I became pregnant. I then miscarried. My gynecologist could no longer find my IUD so he order a CT Scan to find it and they found my IUD in my abdomen which lead to me having it surgically removed.


Rachael, do you feel your miscarriage was caused by the placement of the IUD?
I’ve also had the same thing happen to me, several side effects, pain, everything… and have recently contacted someone regarding this also.


I had the mirena iud for 3 years… I have had multiple neurological problems anywhere from blacking out to dizziness…i have had mris and everything was normal…constant periods and severe weight gain…i had it taken out last week… I had to go to nlood specialists and everything….severe migranes


I had a Mirena put it in 2013 after about 6 months I gained 20+ pounds ( I have always been thin even after my kids), started becoming dizzy, having headaches all the time and started feeling this sharp stabbing pain (like contractions) in my right groin/thigh area. I didnt think much about it for the first year but suddenly it started getting worse to where I couldnt sleep at night, during the day while at work when it started hurting I would have to take a pause and catch my breath and wait for the pain to cease after about an hour. I found myself taking ibuprofen to ease the pain every 4 hours. My libido was declining and I knew that was not normal. I would be in so much pain that I couldnt function. I found myself at the doctor at least twice a month trying to figure out what this pain was and why I was having these spells. I had been MULTIPLE DOCTORS from orthopedics, neurologists, Chiropractors, etc and the pain and spells wouldnt go away. Finally a few months ago I couldnt take it anymore and someone had suggested for me to remove my iud that might be the cause of the contractions feeling. I decided to do that and went back on birth control pills. Immediately I could tell that my body felt different it felt better and every since I have taken it our. I feel more energized, my dizzy spells are gone and the leg pain has ceased. I have went through so much stress and depression and pain and not focused for the past 3yrs on the IUD I was ready to give up. As I was reading other articles I had read that multiple women had the same situation happen to them.


I had never had any problems with migraines, dizziness, constant nausea, or vision problems. I got the Mirena in 2016 after I had my last child and have had nothing but problems ever since. I get migraines, dizziness, nausea, and brief loss of vision at least 2-3 times a week. I have lost time at work to go to the doctor because the migraines and such are so debilitating that I can’t work. I have lost my ability to enjoy life these days because all I want to do is lay in a dark room and sleep.


Blood clot in my spleen possibly from mirena. Permanent damage to my spleen


Hi I have had 2 mirenas and for the last two to three years have been suffering severe pain and been to many doctors, specialist, tests, scans and even hospitalization.
I removed the device 10 days ago and feel SO much better. I can start to function without pain! I am based in Capetown south Africa. My life has been on hold and I am so happy to have it back. I have never attributed my pain to the Mirena and even considered a third as I am not in menapause yet. I turn 50 this year. Can you represent me?
