Woman Seeks Millions from Bayer

Posted on February 11th, 2013 No Comments

A 22-year-old Florida woman who claims to have suffered severe side effects after taking the Yaz/Yasmin birth control medication has filed a lawsuit against Bayer.

The plaintiff said in her lawsuit that she experienced life-threatening side effects, including a bilateral pulmonary embolism, after taking Yaz. The complaint states that the woman started taking Yaz in April 2005 and took it until January 2009. The plaintiff suffered from a bilateral pulmonary embolism in February 2009 after ceasing taking the birth control. This led to other severe permanent injuries, pain, and distress. Because of her injury, she claims she also now has a high risk of developing complications like strokes, blood clots, heart attacks, or even sudden death.

Despite evidences and studies that showed taking Yaz increases the risk of adverse cardiovascular side effects, Bayer failed to warn their patients of the pill’s side effects. If you have suffered from the repercussions of this birth control, call a lawyer at Williams Kherkher to discuss filing a Yasmin lawsuit today.

Pfizer may face lawsuits after birth control recall

Posted on February 8th, 2012 No Comments

Last week, Pfizer announced the recall of over one million packs of birth control pills after it was discovered that a packaging error could have resulted in a wrong amount of hormone pills in each package.

Officials are now concerned that the faulty packaging may cause lawsuits to be filed that claim “wrongful pregnancy.” The recall affected of Lo/Ovral-28 tablets and the packs were supposed to have 28 hormone pills and seven inactive pills.

The packaging issue left some packs with more than 28 active pills and some with less. If a woman does not take enough of the hormone pill, unwanted pregnancy could occur. Pfizer noticed the problem quickly and announced the recall, but most of the packages were already sold and some are worried that women will see the affects of the mistake.

Another birth control pill that has been the center of lawsuits is Yasmin, manufactured  by Bayer Pharmaceuticals. These pills have been connected to the development of certain serious side effects such as blood clot and stroke and if you have developed one of these, you need representation on your side that is committed to helping those who have suffered from another’s negligence.

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 Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187 today.
