In the annual report of the manufacturer of Yaz, Bayer, it was announced that the company had reached a Yaz lawsuit settlement agreement in which about 70 pulmonary embolism and DVT lawsuits would be settled. While this is not an outright admission of liability on the part of the manufacturer, it has several implications for you as a person who has suffered the side effects that the drug is associated with. While the specifics of the settlement agreement may be kept secret, some conclusions can be made from the willingness of the company to settle.
The Yaz Lawsuit Settlement Implies Higher Chances of Getting Compensated
It is reported that as of early 2012, there were over twelve thousand lawsuits filed against the manufacturer of the drug. All these suits were due to the suffering and pain that the drug inflicts upon those who use it. Not only is the drug known to cause heart attacks, strokes, gallbladder complications blood clots and myocardial infarction, it is also known in some instances to cause Cerebrovascular Accidents (CVA) and sometimes also result into death of the user.
Despite the manufacturers being aware of the fact that the contraceptive that they introduced into the market caused more side effects than the average contraceptive, they did not sufficiently warn their potential users like you. This not only means that they failed in producing a drug that is safe to use, but they also failed in their legal duty to offer sufficient warning. This is against the law ad a complete violation of your rights as a consumer since it is misleading.
The fact that most of the cases that the company agreed to settle on are based on the fact that it failed to issue sufficient warning to the users, which include you, means that you too can successfully file a suit and get compensated whether in court or through an out-of-court settlement. This will be compensation for both medical expenses and any other losses, including loss of earnings, which you may incur.
The Yaz Lawsuit Settlement And The Urgency Of Filing A Suit Now
Since the settlement agreement was not reached a long time ago, it means that there is also a likelihood of you getting a settlement too. The side effects that you experience as a user of Yaz are not so different from those that the people who received the settlement experienced.
This also implies that the circumstances haven’t really changed as far as the manufacturer’s liability is concerned. Waiting too long to commence legal proceedings may mean that the company might make amendments in its marketing policy and thus decreasing the chances of your success in getting compensated for your pain and suffering.
There is also the fact that there are statutory limitations as to the period within which one can file a suit. Waiting too long before you act as far as your rights as a consumer are concerned may mean that you will not get compensated, something which you probably deserve.

What Is Yaz?
Yaz is a household name. This daily oral contraceptive is a favourite among many modern women because of its ability to limit the amount of weight that a woman could potentially gain while on the pill. This limit is significantly lower than that of other ordinary contraceptives. Drospirenone and Ethinyl Estradiol are the two compounds that make up this drug. In spite of its sterling popularity among the female population, recent studies have proved that taking this drug for a prolonged period of time significantly increases your risk of having a stroke.
How Yaz Causes Strokes
The Drospirenone component of the drug is a diuretic. It makes the woman experience the urge to go to the washroom more often and they end up passing out large amounts of urine. The effects of this are that the levels of mineral salts in the blood rise. One such mineral is potassium. When this mineral is abundant in the body at dangerously high levels it causes a condition referred to as Hyperkalemia.
Despite its simple name, Hyperkalemia is a potentially fatal condition. The fact that it is a difficult condition to diagnose is what makes it life threatening. The abnormally high potassium levels interfere with the heart’s electrical rhythm. It slows down the rhythm of the heart consequently also slowing down the rate of blood flow in the body. Blood that is stagnate or slow flowing makes it easier for blood clots to form.
Most of the time the clots form in the veins found in the lower body. However they can get dislodged and travel throughout the body. A stroke occurs when some of these clots travel to the brain and obstruct the blood flow depriving the rest of the brain of its supply of blood. Deprived of oxygen, many brain cells die quite rapidly.
A stroke could turn you into a vegetable; make you paralyzed or unable to talk. Some people are unable to hear or see after a stroke. Drospirenone is not the only culprit. High estrogen levels in ladies that are as a consequence of birth control pills have been found to increase the risk of having a stroke among the users.

Okay, it does some bad stuff, but what exactly Yaz anyway?
Yaz (and its predecessor Yasmin) is a birth control pill that uses a different type of synthetic hormone than most other types of birth control. The hormone is called drospirenone, and this different type of hormone is what’s causing so many bad side effects and the reason so many people are taking action. Bayer, the makers of Yaz, markets Yaz as a way to clear up acne, stop hair growth, and help you have a regular menstrual cycle, but what’s the price of those results? For some people, it’s death or serious injury, and that’s why so many people are filing claims.
Should I really file?
Legal action is definitely not frivolous! An article in the Journal of American Academy of Physician Assistants recently came out saying that only women with certain very specific conditions should even consider taking Yaz because it’s so dangerous. Unfortunately, Bayer is not ready to stop making money off of Yaz, so they continue to market it to women without informing them of the risks. It’s a sad fact, but you simply can’t just put your trust in a big pharmaceutical corporation. They are after your money, and they don’t care if their drug could kill you as long as they can get away with it.
People who took Yaz can file for medical treatment costs, pain and suffering, and in some cases even wrongful death. Don’t let them get away with selling you this poison! A lot of people don’t want to sue anyone because everyone hears a lot on TV about frivolous lawsuits and greedy people, but there’s a reason we have a system of justice in America… it’s for cases like this. A Yaz lawsuit will punish Bayer for thinking they could get away with trying to profit from hurting you, and it will help you get back what you lost in medical bills and some small part of what you had to go through.
