Yaz attorneys in Missouri, as well as their clients, recently received great news in regards to ongoing Yaz lawsuits. Bayer, the pharmaceutical manufacturer responsible for Yaz and Yasmin has settled an additional 1,000 Yasmin and Yaz lawsuits since April reports. The additional settlements raise the amount of the current agree Bayer settlement amounts to $300 million.
The Yaz attorneys at Bisnar | Chase are currently pursuing compensation on behalf of a number of Yaz and Yasmin victims across the Country. The use of Yaz and Yasmin have been linked to serious side effects, including deep vein thrombosis, venous thromboembolism, heart attacks, as well as pulmonary embolisms. Women who have suffered serious medical conditions while taking Yasmin or Yaz are encouraged to speak with an experienced product defect lawyer to evaluate possible legal action.
Missouri Victims Deserve Justice
In 2011, the New England Journal of Medicine found that women using birth control pills like Yasmin and Yaz were 1.5 and 2 times more likely to suffer strokes and heart attacks than women using hormonal contraceptive. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has released reports with estimates of a 150% increase in the risk of blood clots amongst women using drospirenone (Yaz and Yasmin’s synthetic progestin) compared to other contraceptives.
In April, Bayer was ordered to provide notes on their warning labels advising consumers of potential increases in blood clots. Bayer is still refuting the validity of studies linking dangerous side effects to Yaz and Yasmin.
These manufacturers have a responsibility to provide their consumers with reasonably safe products. If they are determined liable for the injuries sustained by the women pursuing compensation, huge verdicts may surface in the near future.
