You should educate yourself about your rights to see if you're eligible to particpate in the Yaz Settlement by calling (800) YAZ-0287. The call and consultation is free and confidential.
New York, New York (PRWEB) April 30, 2012
Bayer, the makers of YAZ, YASMIN, OCELLA and BEYAZ have agreed in principle to settle cases of women who sustained blood clot injuries from their birth control. Women who suffered from a DVT, PE, Stroke, Heart Attack or Death, may be able to participate. Depending on when the injury occurred and in what state the woman resided at the time, and in what state it was prescribed may effect your rights. Medical records need to be gathered in a timely manner and the case must be put into suit promptly to protect the rights of the woman or else the right to recovery may be barred by the Statute of Limitations. Lawyers are standing by at (800) YAZ-0287 to field all your questions about the settlement, how to participate, and whether you may be entitled to compensation.
The signature injury that Bayer is including in the settlement at this point are blood clot related injuries. Blood clots are the thickening of the blood within the body causing restricted blood flow in an area and a potentially life threatening situation. All hormonal birth control can cause blood clots, but according to the FDA, the fourth generation hormone known as drospirenone in Yaz, Yasmin, Beyaz and Ocella, have been shown to have an elevated risk of clotting events. Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), Pulmonary Embolism (PE), strokes, and heart attacks may all be linked to blood clots from Yaz, Yasmin, Beyaz and Ocella.
Recent FDA Warning - Label Change
After years of scrutiny, on April 10, 2012 the FDA commanded that Bayer change their label to unequivocally state the increased risk of blood clots with the products Yasmin, Yaz, Beyaz and Ocella, all containing drospirenone. Attorney Jason T. Brown, part of Blau, Brown & Leonard's trial team stated, "The label change is a start, but this product needs to be off the market. Other than the profits of the drug manufacturers, there is no reason for this alien substance drospirenone to be put into womens' bodies when earlier hormones were much safer. Shame on Bayer for putting their profits over the health and well being of our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends."
