Since the cases were consolidated in February, the number of Yasmin, Yaz, and Ocella lawsuits have increased drastically.
The number of cases filed in the Bergen County Superior Court have gone from 39 to 400, according to court documents. The lawsuits were consolidated in New Jersey because the headquarters of the manufacturer of the birth control pills, Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals Inc., is located there.
All of the lawsuits claim similar issues that the side effects associated with the pills caused an increase in stroke, heart attack, pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, and gallbladder disease. The lawsuits claim that Bayer did not properly warn or research the side effects of the pills.
