Birth control settlements could exceed $1.2 billion

Posted on October 4th, 2012 No Comments

Bayer reported earlier last month that settlements of the 12,325 lawsuits filed against the manufacturer due to the dangerous side effects of Yaz and Yasmin could exceed $1.2 billion. Currently, Bayer has paid out $402.6 million in the 1,877 lawsuits it has settled so far.

However, the number of lawsuits increases every month. At least three were filed last month by women who suffered from blood clots, strokes, deep vein thrombosis, gallbladder disorders, and pulmonary embolisms.

The $1.2 billion estimate is subject to increase if the future settlements are higher than the first 1,877. Bayer has reportedly set aside an additional $610.5 million to pay for the settlements.
