Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella were a type of birth control that was manufactured and advertised by Bayer. These oral contraceptives contain a synthetic hormone called progestin drospirenone, otherwise called drsp. This specific hormone can elevate levels of potassium in the blood which can cause serious side effects including stroke, deep vein 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 Lawsuit Status
This lawsuit began years ago and women are just finally getting justice and the financial compensation they deserve. The first Yaz cases were filed in 2009, and currently many women are still unrepresented by Lawyers and have suffered serious side effects. Bayer is settling many of these lawsuits currently and the value of each one depends on the specific circumstances of the case. But, there are more women out there who have been hurt that have not come forward to hold Bayer accountable. We hope we can help women everywhere make a statement to big business and pharmaceutical companies that it is not okay to manipulate and mislead them, especially concerning their health and safety! Many women died as a result of taking Yaz, Yasmn, and Ocella. While others were left with serious health issues and severe side effects.
