Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) February 15, 2010
Indianapolis law firm Price Waicukauski & Riley, LLC (http://www.price-law.com/) has filed suit (3:09-md-02100-DRH-PMF – United States District Court – Southern District of Illinois) against Bayer Healthcare Corporation for the birth control medications, Yasmin and Yaz. Women have claimed that they suffered strokes, heart attack, gall bladder removals or other serious health problems while taking the birth control pills Yasmin or Yaz.
Lawyer William Riley (http://www.price-law.com/Bio/WilliamRiley.asp) explained, “Yasmin, which has been marketed since 2001, and Yaz, since 2006, are oral contraceptives that contain ‘fourth generation’ progestin. The use of this birth control may cause arterial blood clots, gallbladder disease, pancreatitis, liver and kidney failure, rapid heartbeat, arrhythmias and other conditions, including death.”
The firm is currently representing 47 women from across the United States and would be happy to talk to any individuals who have suffered an injury due to the use of Yaz, Yasmin and/or the generic equivalent, Ocella.
