Yasmin and Yaz Lawyers
Patients who used the birth control pills Yaz or Yasmin and have suffered blood clots or other side effects may be eligible to file a lawsuit and receive compensation for their injuries. The first step to finding out if you qualify is to speak with a Yasmin and Yaz attorney about your medical history.
Researchers have found that Yaz and Yasmin can double a woman’s risk of developing blood clots compared to another brand of birth control pills. This increased risk can place patients taking Yaz or Yasmin at risk of other serious side effects, including deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), heart attack or stroke.
In April 2012, the Food and Drug Administration warned that birth control pills such as Yaz and Yasmin that contain the hormone drospirenone can increase a woman risk of suffering blood clots. The FDA warning cited studies which found that the increased blood clot risk for Yaz and Yasmin users could be as high as 300%.
More than 10,000 lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturer of Yaz and Yasmin by women who suffered blood clots or other side effects after taking these drugs. The Yaz and Yasmin lawsuits have alleged that the company failed to properly warn women about the health risks associated with the birth control pills.
