patients are almost twice as likely to develop blood clots if they take some of the most popular birth-control tablets, including Yasmin, compared with older products

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 26, 2014

AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and now, can actively provide an expert opinion in view of the recent news on Yasmin/Yaz lawsuits and potential Yasmin Class Action lawsuit.

According to an article published in February, in the British Journal of Family Medicine, “GPs have been ordered to inform patients that they are almost twice as likely to develop blood clots if they take some of the most popular birth-control tablets, including Yasmin, Femodene and Marvelon, compared with older products.” 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.

Court data, updated on January 15 by the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation, indicate that there are 9,687 cases currently 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 cases of severe complications, allegedly from Yasmin. 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.”

A new lawsuit was filed on November 25, by a Texas resident in New Jersey District Court (2:2013cv07141) alleging that she suffered a stroke from Yasmin and Yaz. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff claims that she was prescribed Yasmin and Yaz and, in 2011, she suffered a stroke.

AttorneyOne.com has further information on Yasmin lawsuits including how to get in contact with legal counsel.
