Our firm is investigating numerous cases regarding the birth control pills Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella. As we have previously reported, these products, known as fourth generation birth control, are believed to cause serious injury including heart attack, stroke, deep-vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, gall stones, and kidney stones. In addition, as we have also reported, the FDA warned Bayer Healthcare about its Yaz advertising campaign, which was misleading regarding the benefits and risks of the drug.
The number of cases filed against Bayer Healthcare and Barr Pharmaceutical (manufacturer of the generic Ocella) are growing at a rapid rate. Thousands of cases have been filed nationwide. State courts in Pennsylvania have consolidated cases regarding Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella and a similar request is pending in New Jersey. Bayer is located in Pittsburgh, Penn. and Wayne, N.J., so many lawsuits will be filed in these states. Cases filed in United States District Courts are consolidated in the Southern District of Illinois as part of an MDL or multi-district litigation.
Currently, lawyers in our Mass Torts Section are working on several cases involving these products. For more information, you may contact one of our lawyers, Alyce Robertson Addison at 800-898-2034 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
