Product liability claims of insufficient Mirena warnings

For individuals who hope to avoid pregnancy, a birth control option that lasts for years without requiring a daily pill might appear to be a valid option. Despite its apparent ease of use, the Intra-Uterine Device, Mirena, may not be as wonderful as it first appears for some California women.

One family is in this scenario following a tragic car accident involving a pedestrian in California.
