Posted on behalf of Goldberg Finnegan, LLC on Apr 22, 2012 in Drug Litigation
If you or someone you know took the birth control pill Yaz, Yasmin or Ocella and suffered a blood clot, pulmonary embolism, stroke, heart attack or other serious injury, then you should contact us to discuss your legal rights at 888-213-8140. Bayer Pharmaceutical recently announced that it was settling a group of about 500 cases involving blood clots for $110 Million Dollars. This settlement was announced just as the FDA ordered Bayer to strengthen the warning about blood clots on its birth control pills. Bayer's contraceptives, Yaz/Yasmin/Ocella generated over $1.5 Billion in revenue in 2010.
There are currently thousands of lawsuits filed in Federal Court in Illinois alleging that Yasmin caused blood clotting, heart attacks and other serious injuries to young women. The Food and Drug Administration has also indicated that at least 50 deaths are tied to Yaz/Yasmin/Ocella from just 2004-2008.
