DrugRisk Announces Drop in Yaz Lawsuits As Bayer Commits $1.5 Billion to Settlements
Date:6/8/2013

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 08, 2013

The birth control information center at DrugRisk.com is announcing new information on the site for women who have taken the contraceptives Yaz or Yasmin. Records show the number of pending cases filed alleging blood clots has decreased as Bayer reserves compensation for victims*.

DrugRisk was created to improve the safety of patients taking popular prescription drugs like Yaz and Yasmin, by providing the latest research, safety alerts, recalls and litigation news. Visitors can determine if others have experienced similar side effects and decide if they need legal advice.

The resource center has added warnings from health experts like the British Medical Journal** and FDA*** that birth control pills containing the hormone drospirenone, such as Yaz and Yasmin, can increase the risk of blood clots.

Due to the number of patients that have filed a Yaz lawsuit alleging blood clots, cases were consolidated to a special federal Multi-District Litigation court in Illinois (Yasmin and Yaz (Drospirenone) Marketing, Sales Practices and Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2100, Southern District Illinois)).

DrugRisk has learned that Bayer has spent nearly $1 billion so far to settle around 4,800 Yaz lawsuits alleging blood clot injuries like pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis (DVT)****. They have also committed up to $1.5 billion to resolve all the cases*****.

Now, the resource center has learned that the latest court update from the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation shows the number of filed claims has fallen to 9,961*.

Lawyers are still helping those who suffered a blood clot, DVT, stroke or Pulmonary Embolism after taking Yaz or Yasmin. Anyone affected is urged to contact the Drug Risk Resource Center or speak with a lawyer about their legal options.

Due to the specialized nature of federal MDL drug injury litigation, DrugRisk cautions that patients should seek a lawyer with experience in defective drug litigation, and only recommends lawyers and law firms who have already settled Yaz lawsuits.
