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.
