Yaz Multidistrict Litigation 2013

Yaz MDL (Multidistrict Litigation) cases regarding the development of DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) are still pending around the country.

However, Bayer – the manufacturer of Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella, announced settlements of 5,700 claims in Yaz birth control lawsuits totaling $1.18 Billion U.S. dollars.

The lawsuits allege that Bayer failed to give sufficient warning to patients and physicians about the increased risk of adverse effects, including some that could potentially lead to death.

Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella side effects include, but are not limited to:

  • DVT, Blood Clots
  • Gallbladder Disease
  • Stroke
  • Heart Attack
  • Death

There are 10,200 Yaz lawsuits pending in the U.S and over 1,300 claims pending that have not been filed in court.  14,500 claimants are currently in pending lawsuits that allege they have suffered personal injuries from the use of Yaz, Yasmin and /or Ocella.

Yaz Settlements May Be Increasing

Yaz lawsuits are being consolidated to a special federal Multi-District Litigation (MDL) court in Illinois.  Steve Maher is a court appointed Yaz MDL Attorney.

Bayer, the manufacturer of Yaz may be stepping up efforts to resolve claims against Yaz and Yasmin birth control.  The most recent Bayer shareholder report indicates that Bayer has resolved close to 3,500 Yaz lawsuits so far, totaling almost $750 million, making the average total per case nearly $214,000 which is higher than the original $212,000 per case.

At this point, Bayer is only settling claims involving blood clot injuries, such as DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) and Pulmonary Embolism.

Yaz and Yasmin contain a synthetic hormone known as “Drospirenone”.  Drospirenone has been linked to DVT and Pulmonary Embolism, causing the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists to add a new warning to said birth control pills  - stating that women taking these birth control pills “may have a higher risk of blood clots.”

Anyone who suffered a blood clot, DVT, stroke or Pulmonary Embolism after taking Yaz or Yasmin is strongly urged to contact a court appointed MDL attorney.
