Have you been affected by Yasmin, the birth control pill produced by Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals, Inc. that has been associated with a number of serious side effects? If you or a loved one has taken Yasmin and experienced dangerous side effects such as blood clots and stroke, you can seek the compensation you deserve. Numerous plaintiffs across the country have filed claims against Bayer with great success, resulting in hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages. Read on to learn more about harmful side effects from Yasmin and how you can find an experienced attorney to aid you in your lawsuit.
Side Effects from Yasmin
Unfortunately for the many women who were prescribed Yasmin, this dangerous medication has been associated with a number of serious side effects. To date, there have been more than 12,000 lawsuits against Bayer, the company that produced and distributed Yasmin. Some of these side effects include:
- Deep Vein Thrombosis
- Blood Clots
- Heart Attack
- Cerebrovascular Accidents
- Pulmonary Embolism
- Myocardial Infarction
- Gallbladder Disease
If you or a loved one has experienced any of these side effects, you may have a claim. To date, Bayer has been held accountable in a vast number of lawsuits alleging that Yasmin caused blood clots leading to stroke or heart attack, among other serious side effects.
Filing Your Claim
Currently, thousands of people are continuing to file lawsuits against Bayer for failing to adequately inform consumers about the harmful side effects associated with Yasmin. While studies showed that Yasmin carried an increased risk for a range of side effects, Bayer aggressively marketed their medication rather than disclosing these dangerous side effects to consumers.
As of July 2013, Bayer has settled claims amounting to a total of $1.4 billion coming from plaintiffs who experienced these harmful side effects. While attorneys across the country are settling these lawsuits, consumers who have yet to file a claim are still legally entitled to do so. If you have experienced any of the side effects listed above as a result of taking Yasmin, we encourage you to pursue a claim against Bayer.
Seeking a Lawyer
If you have been affected by the harmful side effects associated with Yasmin, seek a qualified attorney to represent you immediately.
