A woman from Orleans Parish is suing Bayer Corp. after being diagnosed with multiple pulmonary emboli, which she claims was caused from taking Yaz birth control.
The woman is arguing that Bayer failed to adequately warn her of the health risks associated with the birth control. The suit was filed June 8 and was filed against not only Bayer Corp, but also Bayer Healthcare, Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Bayer Pharmaceuticals Corp. and more.
The woman was prescribed Yaz and took it from October 2008 to July 2009 and she has suffered from multiple pulmonary emboli and other side effects. She is seeking damages for medical expenses, physical pain and suffering, mental anguish and loss of earnings.
Our thoughts are with the victim during this difficult time.
