New Yaz, Yasmin Blood-Clotting Lawsuits Allegations Update: Resource4thePeople Reports Health Canada Reports 23 Deaths Among Contraceptive Users
Date:6/14/2013

from the use of these contraceptives," said Resource4thePeople.

In the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation posting it was reported that "While Bayer has already paid more than $1 billion to settle thousands of lawsuits in the U.S., the drug company tells CBC News it stands by its products."

The CBC also reported in its posting that "According to the documents obtained from Health Canada, between 2007 and February 2013, doctors and pharmacists have reported 600 adverse reactions and 23 deaths where Yaz or Yasmin were suspected. More than half of the reported deaths were women under 26, with the youngest age 14."

The Canadian class-action case was certified by Justice Crane of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in a Yaz and Yasmin class action that contains similar allegations to those contained in American lawsuits consolidated in the multidistrict litigation before a federal judge in Illinois.

Bayer has confirmed its Feb. 28, 2013 annual report***** that many of the U.S. cases are in the process of being settled.

“As these cases are being settled we are receiving inquires from consumers about whether there may be an approaching deadline affecting their ability to join in this litigation," said Resource4thePeople.

“In response to these inquiries we are informing consumers that our national network of consumers will continue to offer free legal consultations to women who used Yaz or Yasmin and have allegedly suffered serious blood-clotting problems.”

Bayer detailed in its annual report that it has settled about 4,800 of these lawsuits for over $1 billion and that there are over 13,000 claimants still seeking damages over side effects.

"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.'/>"/>
