Yasmin and Yaz Lawyers
More than 10,000 women have filed lawsuits against the manufacturer of Yasmin and Yaz birth control pills. Patients who took these drugs and developed blood clots or other side effects may wish to speak with a Yasmin or Yaz lawyer to learn more about whether they may be eligible to file a lawsuit.
Multiple studies have found that women taking Yaz or Yasmin are twice as likely to develop blood clots as women using other birth control pills. These blood clots could increase the risk of other side effects from Yaz or Yasmin, including deep vein thrombosis (DVTs), pulmonary embolisms, heart attack and stroke.
Lawsuits filed on behalf of women who were injured after taking Yaz or Yasmin have alleged that the drugs’ manufacturer failed to properly warn patients about the risk of blood clots or other side effects of the birth control pills. Yaz lawsuits filed against the manufacturer of the birth control drug have also alleged that the company promoted the drug in a series of TV commercials as a treatment for acne and PMS—two conditions which it has not been approved to treat by the Food and Drug Administration.
Women who were injured after using Yaz or Yasmin may want to talk with a lawyer in order to determine whether they qualify for a lawsuit. An experienced Yasmin or Yaz attorney can help patients to gather the evidence necessary to prove that their injuries were caused by the use of the birth control pill.
If you or a loved one used Yaz, Yasmin or Ocella and suffered blood clots or other serious side effects, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit.
