Resource4thePeople is updating consumers today with news about the progress of consolidated federal court lawsuits* claiming that the popular birth control pills Yaz and Yasmin allegedly can cause blood-clotting problems that plaintiffs claim may be life-threatening.

Germany pharmaceutical giant Bayer has 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, reports Resource4thePeople.

"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 said that it, "is only settling claims in the U.S. for venous clot injuries (deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism) after a case-specific analysis of medical records on a rolling basis. Such injuries are alleged by about 3,200 of the pending unsettled claimants. Bayer will continue to consider the option of settling individual lawsuits in the U.S. on a case-by-case basis."

Resource4thePeople is also updating consumers with news that Bayer also has agreed to pay up to $24 million to settle other lawsuits involving allegations over gall bladder side effects.These settlements are a different part of this consolidated litigation in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois in which plaintiffs claimed that they suffered gall bladder injuries because they used Yaz and Yasmin as contraceptives.**

Reuters News Service reported*** that the settlements also include Yaz and Yasmin cases in state courts in Ca
