Yaz attorneys received a helping hand when a recent decision gave victims and their representation more time to pursue compensation for injuries pertaining to the use of Yaz and Yasmin. Deadlines for Yaz lawsuits were recently extended an additional 90 days, one of multiple extensions that have been granted to Yaz side effect victims. The recent increase by Chief Judge Herndon will allow Yaz victims with limited knowledge of the drug’s contribution to their health problems a chance to pursue compensation.
Yaz and Yasmin are a form of birth control manufactured by Bayer Pharmaceuticals. Yaz manufactures combined progestin estrogen and drospirenone to modify hormone levels in women who take the medication. Yaz was the nation’s best-selling birth control pill, but it was not long before reports surfaced linking blood clots and cardiovascular risks to the use of Yaz and Yasmin.
Yaz Side Effects
Those who have suffered injuries due to the use of Yaz may have a claim for compensation. A study published by the British Medical Journal in October of 2011 reported that those taking Yaz or Yasmin are twice as likely to develop blood clots compared to other forms of birth control.
Although Bayer refutes the validity of the study, it was done by well-respected and trusted organizations and utilized over 1.3 million Danish women. A Bayer-funded study found that women taking Yaz are just as likely to develop blood clots and cardiovascular problems as those taking other forms of brith control, but the FDA are not buying it.
In April of 2012, Bayer was ordered to note on their warning labels that researchers have found Yaz to possibly triple one’s risk for blood clots. If you or a loved one are suffering from any of the following health problems, and feel that it was caused by the use of defective Yaz birth control, speaking with an experienced Texas Yaz lawyer may be in your best interest.
