A woman from Oklahoma has filed a lawsuit against Bayer and its sister companies after she developed cholecystitis, or inflammation of the gallbladder, which required a cholecystectom. Her lawsuit will be added to the already 11,000 Yaz and Yasmin cases.
The woman claims Bayer was negligent and over-promoted the use of Yaz and Yasmin. She is also arguing that the birth control pills were defective and that the public was not provided with manufacturer warnings about the associated risks.
The plaintiff is seeking compensation for her medical expenses, pain and suffering, and punitive damages, seedol.com reports.
