Senator suffers stroke at age 52

Posted on January 31st, 2012 No Comments

Senator Mark Kirk of Illinois suffered a stroke at age 52. Many were surprised because the man was so young and it has shed a light on the issue that strokes can even affect younger people as well.

Strokes can happen to anyone of any age and there has been an increase in the amount of strokes that have affected younger people. Each year, 795,000  occur in the U.S and a quarter of these are people that are under the age of 65.

Recently, an increase of stroke has been tied to the use of certain birth control pills. The FDA reviewed Yasmin and Yaz in order to determine whether or not the use of the pill was worth the potential risk.

If you or a loved one has used Yasmin or Yaz birth control and suffered from a serious health issue as a result, contact the Yasmin lawsuit lawyers of Williams Hart today by calling 800-761-3187 today.

FDA consultants may have previously worked for Bayer

Posted on January 25th, 2012 No Comments

A conflict of interest has arisen in the case of Yasmin and Yaz lawsuits regarding members of the committee.

It has allegedly been said that members of the Food and Drug Administration who were in favor to keep the Yasmin and Yaz on the shelves had previously worked for Bayer Pharmaceuticals or received some type of financial backing from the company.

This claims came after a government watchdog group wrote a letter claiming that a new hearing should be held in order to address these alleged claims. In December, 11 out of a 15 person committee voted that the advantages of Yasmin and Yaz outweighed the risks.

This vote meant that Yasmin and Yaz could remain on the market and avoid a recall. It was later found that at least four members of the committee had some type of tie to Bayer.

If you or a loved one has suffered from a serious health side effect such as a blood clot as a result of using Yasmin or Yaz birth control, you need representation on your side at this time that may be able to help you receive the compensation that you deserve.

If mediation in Yaz case cannot occur, trial will continue April 2012

Posted on January 17th, 2012 No Comments

Last week, a judge stated that the plaintiffs in the Yaz lawsuits would go to mediation with Bayer Pharmaceuticals in order to see if an agreement could be met in the cases revolving the claims that state oral contraceptives made by Bayer caused women serious health side effects that they were not warned about.

Evidence in the case can still be found at this time in order to provide information that may be critical to the case. The judge also stated that ‘good faith’ is being sought in the negotiation process for the case and if it can not be met, a bellwether trial will be sought in April 30, 2012.

If good faith is not met, each case will be met individually. Bayer is the maker of Yasmin and Yaz birth control pills and plaintiffs in the case state that the use of this medication caused women to suffer from serious health issues as a result.

If this has happened to you or someone you know, you need experienced representation on your side. Contact the Yasmin lawsuit birth control lawyers of Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187 today.

Claims against Bayer attempt to settle in mediation

Posted on January 10th, 2012 No Comments

The drugmaker, Bayer Pharmaceuticals, will now be going to mediation to try and settle lawsuits claiming that the their birth control pill, Yaz, caused women to develop blood clots.

A judge in Illinois was assigned to the case in hopes to settle the claims in mediation instead of in court. The claims state that the drugmaker left out information about the Yasmin birth control family and the potential health risks that could occur when taking the prescription pill. This includes an increased risk of blood cl0t.

There have been more than 10,000 lawsuits filed that allege that the medication caused serious injury. Last year, the Food and Drug Administration stated that women who take this type of birth control have a 74 percent increased chance of developing a blood clot.

The connection between birth control and blood clots

Posted on January 6th, 2012 No Comments

New research on the effects of the popular birth control, Yaz, has found a link between one of the key ingredients and blood clots.

The hormone progestin, drospirenone, has been connected to the increased chance of developing a blood clot in the lungs or in the legs. The findings in the FDA report show that 10 out of every 10,000 women taking birth control with drospirenone will experience a blood clot as compared to only 6 out of every 10,000 women who are prescribed birth control without the hormone progrestin, drospirenone.

The FDA panel members made an executive decision, in a 15-11 vote, that the benefits outweigh the risks when dealing with contraceptives that contain drospirenone. The panel did, however, make the statement that they believe the labeling should be updated to clearly state the connection between this type of contraceptive and the higher possibility of blood clots.

If you or a loved one has developed a blood clot as a result of taking Yasmin or Yaz birth control, you need experienced representation on your side. Please contact the Yasmin lawsuit lawyers of Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187 today.
