Yaz Lawsuits

This specific hormone can elevate levels of potassium in the blood which can cause serious side effects including stroke, deep Yaz Yasmin Ocella Lawsuitsvein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism, gallbladder disease, heart attacks, damaged kidneys, abnormal heartbeat, and death. Unfortunately, Bayer did not warn doctors and women of these serious side effects. Instead, they focused on misleading the public through catchy and fun advertising. Because of this, many women filed Yaz and Yasmin lawsuits across the country to recover damages for their extra medical bills, pain and suffering, and more.

Yaz Side Effects and Risks

Yaz is made with a synthetic hormone that can lead to a condition called hyperkalemia, which means there is too much protein in the blood. This condition can lead to very serious side effects.  Yaz Side effects include:

  • Heart Attack
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis, which are blood clots in the legs
  • Stroke
  • Pulmonary Embolism
  • Gallbladder Disease
  • Damaged Kidneys
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Death
  • And more

Yaz lawsuits were filed against Bayer starting 6 years ago by women who claimed that Yaz made them sick or injured.  These lawsuits allege that Bayer failed to warn women of the serious side effects and health risks, while also overstating the benefits of the drug.

Yaz, Yasmin, & Ocella Can Cause Serious Injuries

The lawyers at Drug Injury Legal are still accepting Yaz clients across the country to help make sure that every woman affected by Bayer’s wrongdoing gets justice. These oral contraceptives were dangerous and Bayer misled the public about their safety and overall effectiveness.


How Bayer Marketed Yaz

All drugs have side effects, but Bayer marketed these three birth control pills by severely downplaying adverse effects and misleading the public as to their benefits.  The Yaz commercials included significant audio and visual effects that confused viewers and distracted them from receiving important information. Bayer would change the scenes and music quickly when displaying side effects so that consumers did not really have a chance to pay attention. The commercials focused heavily on women having fun, strong music, bright colors, balloons, and deciding that women were “Not Gonna Take It” anymore. Bayer advertised that Yaz and Yasmin could treat PMS and Acne, misleading the public. The FDA even told Bayer that they had down played the drug’s risk and wrongly implied that Yaz treated PMS and acne. In fact, the drug can only treat mild acne and PMDD. Bayer used fun, catchy advertising to lure women into taking the drug while downplaying it’s side effects. As a result, countless women suffered serious injuries.

Eventually, Bayer changed the Yaz and Yasmin commercials. But, there were still problems with how it disclosed side effect information and data to doctors and the general public. The FDA stepped in again, stating that there were serious concerns over study data showing that Yaz and Yasmin might not be safe for women. Many studies showed that the drug ought to have a better label to warn women of the potential side effects.
