After numerous reports indicating the birth control drugs Yaz and Yasmin may be related to dangerous side effects, thousands of women have contacted a Yaz lawyer to learn about their legal options and whether they can recover for their injuries.
Lawyers are currently helping those women who suffered a blood clot, stroke, DVT or pulmonary embolism after taking Yaz or Yasmin file claims and recover for their damages. However, your time to file a claim may be limited.
A Yaz lawyer can explain how recent studies have linked the active hormone ingredient in Yaz, drospirenone, to increased levels of potassium in the blood. This, in turn, can heighten the risk of blood clots, blockages in the brain (stroke) and lungs (pulmonary embolism).
All of these side effects can result in physical disability, loss of brain function and even death. Since the maker of Yaz, Bayer, failed to properly warn women of the risks, they are liable for the damages caused.
If you suffered a blood clot, stroke, pulmonary embolism or DVT after taking Yaz, you may be entitled to a substantial financial settlement. Contact us today to speak with a Yaz lawyer about your legal rights.
Soon after Yaz and Yasmin were released, the FDA received hundreds of reports of patients suffering injury or death. Experts feared that thousands more women would eventually be affected.
Two studies from Denmark and the Netherlands published in the British Medical Journal in 2009 confirmed the fears. They found that drugs like Yaz containing the chemical drospirenone were linked to higher rates of blood clots.
In October, 2011, the FDA released a long-term study of more than 800,000 women which found that drugs like Yaz with the chemical drospirenone could increase the risk of blood clots by as much as 75%.
Now, court records show that more than 6,000 women have filed a lawsuit for blood clot-related injuries like DVT, stroke or pulmonary embolism. Those that hired the right Yaz lawyer have already begun settling their cases.
Lawyers have helped thousands of families affected by defective drugs file claims and are currently settling cases for those injured by Yaz. These same lawyers are available to discuss your case today.
Defective drug lawsuits like this can be complex legal matters. Make sure your lawyer is qualified for this type of case, has experience fighting large drug companies and has the resources necessary to finish your case. Often times, drug companies will only negotiate with lawyers that they recognize as a threat.
The Yaz Risks Center only recommends lawyers and law firms that have already settled Yaz lawsuits.
