Millions of women who have trusted Yaz or Yasmin as a safe form of birth control are now learning that the drugs have been linked to serious and potentially fatal side effects. The FDA recently ordered the drug’s manufacturer, Bayer, to change its warning label.
For those who suffered injury after taking Yaz, it is important to know that you have a legal right to recover for your damages. A Tampa Yaz attorney can explain how a large number of women have already received financial help for their loss.
Researchers in the United States and Europe have discovered that the active ingredient in Yaz, drospirenone, may increase the risk of blood clots and consequently lead to stroke, Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism.
Due to the failure of Bayer to properly warn women of these risks, thousands may have suffered injury or death. A Tampa Yaz attorney can help those affected file a claim and receive a quick recovery.
If you or a loved one suffered a blood clot, stroke, pulmonary embolism or DVT after taking Yaz, you may be entitled to substantial compensation, however, time is limited. Contact us today to speak with a Tampa Yaz Attorney.
In the past several years, five major studies around the world and the FDA have warned that drugs like Yaz can increase the risk of blood clots. However, Bayer has continued to earn billions selling the drug.
After early reports of hundreds of injuries or death in women taking Yaz or Yasmin, the FDA sponsored a study of more than 800,000 women taking birth control pills. They released the results in October of 2011, which showed that drugs like Yaz can lead to as much as a 75% higher risk of blood clots.
The British Medical Journal also published data from researchers in Denmark and the Netherlands in 2009 showing oral contraceptives like Yaz, which contain the chemical drospirenone, are related to higher rates of blood clots.
The stroke, pulmonary embolism or DVT blood clots caused by drugs like Yaz can be extremely severe or even fatal. Those affected may face years or treatment, rehabilitation, medical costs and lost earnings. A Tampa Yaz attorney can explain the financial compensation available to help.
More than 10,000 women have already filed lawsuits for their Yaz side effects. Attorneys with the Yaz Litigation Group have helped many of these women settle their cases before others are even filed.
