Utah Yaz attorneys may find their time is running out to file a claim against Bayer, the maker of the birth control drug. The attorneys at Bisnar Chase law firm are offering a “no win, no fee” guarantee. The personal injury law firm has been helping clients with defective product claims for decades and has helped thousands of victims recover hundreds of millions in settlement claims.
A recent Bloomberg News report stated that Bayer has settled nearly 1900 Yaz lawsuits so far, with the average payout of around $212,000. Bayer has increased its reserves to settle cases, which could be good news for Utah Yaz users who have yet to file a claim.
Possible Yaz Side Effects
An research study in 2011 funded by the FDA, indicated that women who used Yaz may be up to 74% more likely to experience a blood clot compared to women who used older types of birth control pills. The panel eventually voted 15-11 to allow Yaz to be continued to be sold but its members agreed that stronger warning labels for the drug were necessary. The new warning labels will advise women that using birth control pills containing a synthetic hormone known as drospirenone, the primary ingredient in Yaz, may result in a threefold risk of experiencing a serious blood clot.
On May 31, 2012, the Institute for Safe Medicine Practices published its QuarterWatch report which ranked Yaz and Yasmin as the second-worst drugs in 2011 for the number of complications reported to the FDA.
The increased blood clots could lead to strokes, heart attacks, and pulmonary embolisms. In addition to increased blood clots, Yaz has been linked to DVT – Deep Vein Thrombosis.
