San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 22, 2013
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and they are now actively providing expert opinion in view of the recent news on Yasmin/Yaz lawsuits and potential Yasmin Class Action lawsuit.
On September 16, a new lawsuit was filed by a woman in Louisiana Eastern District Court (case no. 2:2013cv05844) alleging that Yasmin and Yaz caused her to suffer several miscarriages. Yasmin, which was approved by the FDA in 2001, and its sister drug Yaz, which was approved in 2006, are oral contraceptives that combine estrogen and a fourth generation progestin, drospirenone, to prevent pregnancy. Yasmin and Yaz are manufactured by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff claims that she was prescribed Yasmin/Yaz around 2007 and she suffered miscarriages in 2008 and 2011.
Court data indicate that on October 17, there were 9,873 actions pending in the Yasmin/Yaz Multidistrict Litigation (MDL 2100, US District Court, Southern District of Illinois).
Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com updated the website and, now, can actively provide an expert opinion including how to get in contact with legal counsel easily and inexpensively in case of alleged Yasmin severe complications. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations at AttorneyOne.com, adds that the relevant information illustrates that people continue to file Yasmin and Yaz lawsuits. "For that reason", he continues, "our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
On July 31, Bayer announced in its second-quarter 2013 report that, as of July 8, the company had reached agreements to settle approximately 6,760 Yasmin/Yaz lawsuits alleging deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism for about $1.4 billion.
