First individual civil suit against Yasmin filed in Canada

Posted on November 29th, 2011 No Comments

The family of a young Toronto woman, that died after taking Yasmin birth control, have now filed the first individual lawsuit in Canada against the drug maker.

According to officials in the case, the 26-year-old woman died in 2009 of a pulmonary embolism after she took Yasmin birth control. Yasmin is made by Bayer Inc. and is a fourth generation birth control pill that has recently been linked to increased risk of blood clot, stroke, gallbladder disease, heart attack, and deep vein thrombosis.

Public hearings will be held in the U.S. on Dec. 8 in order to discuss the safety of the oral contraceptive. In the U.S., more than 10,400 lawsuits have been filed claiming that Yasmin caused negative health side effects. In May, Health Canada also announced that they would be reviewing the safety of Yasmin.

If you or a loved one has developed  a negative health side effect such as a blood clot, after using Yasmin, you need experienced representation on your side. Contact the Yasmin pulmonary embolism lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187 today.
