When new drugs are released on the market, it is understood that the benefits of the drug should outweigh the known risks. When the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation gives a new pharmaceutical its seal of approval, the public believes that the drug has undergone extensive testing to ensure that it is safe for consumption. However, sometimes an approved drug is later determined to cause unexpected side effects, such as the birth control pills Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella.
If you or someone you know has suffered unexpected side effects from taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella, contact the Yaz side-effect lawyers of Williams Kherkher today to learn about your legal options. Call 800-761-3187 today to determine your legal options.
Liability for Side Effects
If a product is marketed to the public as an oral contraceptive, most consumers are aware of the associated risks, such as nausea, bloating, spotting, dizziness, etc. Additionally, products contain a list of all known potential side effects, which a person can consider before taking the drug. Occasionally, however, a drug has unexpected side-effects that affect consumers.
The birth control pills Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella have been associated with serious side-effects, including stroke, heart attack, and blood clots. Because these side effects were not listed by the manufacturer, Bayer, the manufacturer, is liable for damages incurred by women who experienced these side-effects.
Currently, women across America are suing Bayer for the unknown health risks associated with Yas, Yasmin, and Ocella. If you have suffered from this product, contact the Yaz side-effect lawyers of William Kherkher today at 800-761-3187.
