Latest Yaz, Yasmin Lawsuits Alleging Blood-Clotting Side Effects: Resource4thePeople Reports Consolidated Cases Continue to Be Opened, Settled and Dismissed
Date:8/6/2013

alleging that they have suffered serious blood-clotting problems from the use of oral contraceptives that were marketed as safe to women choosing this type of contraception,” said Resource4thePeople.

“As these cases proceed forward we will continue to offer free consultations for other women who have allegedly suffered similar side effects and wish to determine what their legal rights to compensation may be.”

Women who have filed Yaz and Yasmin blood-clotting lawsuits have claimed that they suffered blood clots, deep vein thrombosis, strokes and pulmonary embolisms as a result of their use of the contraceptives according to allegations contained in their lawsuits.*

Resrouce4thePeople notes that Bayer Pharmaceuticals -- the company that manufactured and marketed Yaz and Yasmin -- confirmed in its Feb. 28, 2013 annual report*** that many of these cases are in the process of being settled.

"As of February 12, 2013, Bayer had reached agreements, without admission of liability, to settle the claims of approximately 4,800 claimants in the U.S. for a total amount of about US $1 billion," according to the annual report.

Bayer also has agreed to pay up to $24 million to settle other lawsuits in the multidistrict litigation involving allegations over gall bladder side effects, according to the court file.

These settlements are a different component of this consolidated litigation in Illinois in which plaintiffs claimed that they suffered gall bladder injuries because they used Yaz and Yasmin as contraceptives.

Meanwhile, Reuters News Service reported**** March 20, 2013 that the settlements also include Yaz and Yasmin cases in state courts in California, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

"Under the agreement, Bayer will pay $2,000 to plaintiffs who suffered gallbladder injuries and $3,000 to individuals who had their gallbladders removed, according to the agreement," Reuters reported.
