Bayer has one more Yaz lawsuit on its hands after a California woman had to under go a cholecystectomy, or a procedure to remove her gallbladder, after she developed gallbladder disease while Yaz.
The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles County and accuses Bayer of product liability, negligence, negligent misrepresentation, fraudulent concealment, and breach of implied and express warranties. Gallbladder disease can be extremely painful and its removal can require lifelong medical care.
The disease has been linked to Yaz and Yasmin because they contain drospirenone, an artificial compound that mimics a natural hormone. Drospirenone can increase women’s risk of gallbladder complications.
If you or someone you love has developed gallbladder disease after taking Yaz or Yasmin, contact the Yasmin birth control attorneys of Williams Kherker today at 800-761-3187.
