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 and Yaz lawsuits and potential Yasmin Class Action lawsuit.

According to Health Canada documents released on June 11, Yasmin and Yaz have been linked to the deaths of at least 23 Canadian women (Vancouver Sun*, June 13). 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. The report includes about 600 adverse reactions among women taking Yasmin and Yaz between 2007 and Feb. 28, 2013.

A new study, published in the Annals of Noninvasive Electrocardiology on May 3, revealed that fourth generation oral contraceptives (incl. Yasmin) are linked to heart risk at a higher extent than earlier generation contraceptives. According to the study, fourth-generation oral contraceptives have a lengthening effect on the QTc when prolonged corrected QT (QTc) interval is a marker for an increased risk of sudden cardiac death.

On July 10, the US Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) informed that there are 9,998 actions pending in the Yasmin/Yaz MDL (No 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.”

Thomson Reuters published on March 20, that Bayer agreed to settle lawsuits alleging gallbladder injuries from Yasmin and Yaz. According to Thomson Reuters “Bayer will pay $2,000 to plaintiffs who suffered gallbladder injuries and $3,000 to individuals who had their gallbladders removed, according to the agreement”.
