The Defective Drug Attorneys at Gilman Law LLP, a leading national law firm, are assisting individuals with serious injuries and potentially fatal blood clots as a result of using Yaz birth control pills or Yasmin birth control pills file claims and share in the $110M Yaz, Yasmin Settlement.

Terms Of The Yaz, Yasmin Settlement

In January 2012, the Honorable David Herndon, the presiding judge on many Bayer Yaz, Yasmin birth control pill lawsuits, postponed the first scheduled Yaz trial and ordered the case to mediation in the Yaz, Yasmin Litigation (U.S. JPML Case No.: 2100) (Yaz, Yasmin Mediation Order). Parties to the settlement reported that the Yaz, Yasmin Settlement may pay upwards of $110 million to settle numerous lawsuits over claims that its Yasmin birth-control pills caused blood clots, according to the mediation settlement report.* This is the first settlement of cases over the product since the parties went to mediation in an attempt to resolve claims of serious injuries from the use of Yaz birth-control pills and Yasmin birth-control pills.

The $110 million settlement for 500 cases would pay an average of about $220,000 per case to resolve the claims that its Yasmin contraceptives and Yaz contraceptives caused sometimes fatal blood clots that can lead to heart attacks and strokes.

What Led Bayer To Settle The Yaz Lawsuits and Yasmin Lawsuits

The notice of the settlements were announced just days after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a label change for the drospirenone-containing birth control pills (Yaz and Yasmin). This Yaz, Yasmin label change includes the increased risk for developing dangerous blood clots.

The FDA’s label change decision follows the recommendation of an advisory panel that met in December, voting 21-5 that labeling on Bayer’s Yaz birth control pill is inadequate and should be revised to better reflect the higher risk of blood clots associated with these drugs.
