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 lawsuits and potential Yasmin Recall lawsuit.
Bayer recently announced in her 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. 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.
On July 25, a Yasmin lawsuit alleging pulmonary embolism (case no. 3:2013cv20020, Illinois Southern District Court) was transferred to the Yasmin Multiditrict Litigation. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff claims that she started taking Yasmin and Yaz and she suffered pulmonary embolism from her exposure to these drugs.
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.”
According to Health Canada documents released on June 11, Yasmin and Yaz have been linked to the deaths of at least 23 Canadian women (The Vancouver Sun*, June 13). The report includes about 600 adverse reactions among women taking Yasmin and Yaz between 2007 and Feb. 28, 2013.
