If Yaz Has Been Found To Produce Serious Side Effects Why Is It Still On The Market?
To date, Bayer, which is Yaz’s manufacturer, has made over 70 individual settlements to women who have suffered serious side effects from their oral contraceptive. Each case is examined separately based on the grounds of the pill causing pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the legs). Attorneys are finding more success in filing cases individually, rather than as a class action suit, which is in part, causing a delay in the remittal of the drug. Victims who have suffered from serious side effects associated with the Yaz contraceptive may still be eligible for compensation.
Safyral, Beyaz, Teva, and Sandoz, are similar birth control pills which also contains the harmful ingredient drospirenone, which has been found to cause blood clots and even death. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious side effect associated with one of these birth control pills such as pulmonary embolism, blood clots, or gallbladder disease, it is essential to seek help from a qualified Broward County Yaz Attorney.
