One of the most commonly used oral contraceptives on the market, Yaz, has been taken by millions of women worldwide. However, recent studies show that the drug may have serious side effects that might be dangerous to many women by increasing the risk of blood clots.
If you or someone you love used Yaz and developed a blood clot, stroke, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism, you might be eligible to file a claim for your damages.
Reports show more than 6,000 women or families have already filed a Yaz lawsuit due to a serious injury or even death caused by the drug. Most of these lawsuits have been consolidated into a Federal Multi-District Litigation court in Illinois.
Although a Yaz lawsuit could take years due to the number of cases filed, Bayer Pharmaceuticals, the maker of the drug, has begun settling some of the cases. If you have not yet filed a claim there is still time, however, it is important to use the right law firm if you wish to recover.
If you suffered a stroke, heart attack, blood clot, DVT or pulmonary embolism after taking Yaz, it is important to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible. You may be entitled to substantial compensation through a Yaz lawsuit, however, time is limited.
Recent studies prove that Yaz can increase the risk of developing serious blood clot-related conditions of the heart, lungs and brain. The maker of Yaz, Bayer Pharmaceuticals, will now face litigation due to the fact that they have not properly warned patients of these risks.
Soon after Yaz and Yasmin were launched, the FDA received reports of about 50 deaths and about 100 injuries in women using the drugs.
The agency then sponsored a study which followed more than 800,000 women taking oral contraceptive pills over several years. That study showed that drugs such as Yaz might increase the risk of blood clots by approximately 75%.
In 2009, The British Medical Journal also released studies from scientists in Denmark and the Netherlands showing that drugs like Yaz could significantly heighten the risk of developing blood clots.
A lawyer can explain all of the findings linking Yaz to serious health concerns and how Bayer Pharmaceuticals continues to earn billions selling the drug despite the dangers. They can also help you file a Yaz lawsuit and recover if you have been injured.
