Yasmin and Yaz gallbladder lawsuits to be settled by Bayer

Posted on April 23rd, 2013 No Comments

Drug giant Bayer AG recently agreed to pay plaintiffs who have filed lawsuits that claimed they suffered gallbladder injuries and blood clot damages because of Yasmin and Yaz contraceptives.

According to recent court documents, Bayer reached a deal on Friday, March 15 to make a settlement of up to $24 million for consolidated gallbladder injury lawsuits in four states. Plaintiffs who suffered gallbladder injuries will receive $2,000 in payment from Bayer, and $3,000 will go to plaintiffs who had their gallbladders removed, according to the agreement. On the other hand, 4,800 consolidated plaintiffs who claimed to suffer blood clots from the contraceptive drug could receive a portion of a $1 billion settlement.

Bayer is firm in its belief that Yasmin and Yaz contraceptive pills do not increase the risk of gallbladder injuries compared to other contraceptives. However, many women have been found to suffer serious health problems as a result of using this pill; thus, our attorneys at Williams Kherkher work diligently to fight for compensation for these victims. Call 800-761-3187 to discuss your legal options if you have suffered from using Yasmin or Yaz.

5 women file lawsuit against Yaz

Posted on April 1st, 2013 No Comments

Five women jointly filed a lawsuit against drug giant Bayer, claiming they endured serious side effects after using the birth control pills Yaz, Yasmin, and the generic form of Ocella.

According to the lawsuit filed on March 19 in the Superior Court of the State of California, the five women allege that they lost wages, have a decreased capacity to earn a living, and suffer from emotional effects after sustaining injuries from these dangerous birth control pills. In the filing, four of the plaintiffs suffered deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and other issues, while the fifth plaintiff said she had a venous thromboembolism that required her to be monitored and treated.

Numerous charges of fraud, negligent misrepresentations, manufacturing defect, failure to warn, and deceit by concealment were filed by the plaintiffs against Bayer.

If you, like these women, have been negatively affected by your use of the defective birth control pills Yas, Yasmin, and/or Ocella, our lawyers at Williams Kherkher may be able to help you pursue legal action. Call 800-761-3187 to discuss filing a legal claim.
