Yasmin/Yaz Lawsuit Update

Lawyers throughout the nation who represent women who have been injured after taking Yaz/Yasmin birth control are currently being contacted by Bayer (the makers of Yaz/Yasmin) to possibly reach settlements for their clients with pulmonary embolism and/or deep vein thrombosis (DVT) claims.

Since February of 2012, approximately 11,300 lawsuits have been filed by attorneys representing Yaz victims, according to Bayer’s 2011 Annual Report. So far approximately 70 of these cases have been settled, and Bayer is continuing settlement discussions on a case-by-case basis with attorneys nationwide. Bayer is only focusing right now on injuries involving pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis. Gall bladder injuries are not yet being reviewed.
