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 Hart 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.

FDA approves Xarelto to treat and reduce DVT, PE

Posted on November 6th, 2012 No Comments

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration expanded Johnson & Johnson’s Xarelto drug to also include treating and reducing the risk of deep-vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. Xarelto is currently used to reduce the risk of blood clots and strokes.

The expansion of the drug makes Xarelto the first oral, anti-clotting drug to reduce and treat blood clots since the drug warfarin was approved almost six decades ago. Both Johnson & Johnson and Bayer market the medication, according to the Washington Post.

Deep-vein thrombosis is a blood clot that forms in one of the body’s deep, large veins–usually in the legs. These blood clots can detach and travel throughout the body, making it potentially deadly if it enters the heart or lungs. It is called a pulmonary embolism when the clot is lodged near the lungs.

If you or someone you love has suffered from deep-vein thrombosis or a pulmonary embolism caused by the birth control pills Yaz or Yasmin, contact the birth control lawsuit attorneys of Williams Hart at 800-761-3187.
