Injured Women May Be Entitled to Compensation Through a Yasmin and Yaz Lawsuit
Tampa, Lakeland, Orlando
Women harmed by Yaz, Yasmin, or its generic version Ocella may be entitled to seek compensation for their injuries by filing a lawsuit against Bayer HeathCare Pharmaceuticals, the makers of the contraceptives. If you believe that you have been harmed by the birth control pills Yaz, Yasmin or Ocella, a birth control lawyer may be able to help you pursue a claim for damages. For more information, call 1-888-BURNETTI.
Why Yaz and Yasmin Are Different Than Other Birth Control Pills
Yaz and Yasmin birth control pills differ from other oral contraceptives because they contain drospirenone. Drospirenone causes elevated blood levels of potassium which may lead to serious health problems. Yasmin and Yaz have been under heavy scrutiny for possible links in serious side effects including:
- Pulmonary embolism (PE)
- Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
- Heart attack
- Blood clots
- Gall bladder disease
- Liver failure
- Kidney failure
- Elevated potassium levels
Birth Control Advertising
Television and print ads for Yasmin and Yaz have resulted in several warnings from the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) because the manufacturer exaggerated the benefits and downplayed the many potential complications. Bayer agreed to spend $20 million to correct misinformation in prior direct-to-consumer advertisements, and also agreed to submit future Yasmin and Yaz ads to the FDA for approval prior to their release.
Yasmin & Yaz Lawsuit
Yasmin has been one of the most popular oral contraceptives since its release on May 11, 2001, with sales topping $570 million in 2007. Together, sales for Yasmin and Yaz (both manufactured by Bayer) totaled over $1.2 billion in 2008. Despite its popularity, these birth control pills are now involved in multiple federal lawsuits because of the additional risks compared to other birth control pills.
Recently, several product liability lawsuits have been filed throughout the U.S. on behalf of women who have developed serious medical problems after using Yasmin and Yaz. All of the lawsuits have been consolidated under MDL 2100 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois.
