As we have reported in past issues of the Report, we are working on a large number of cases involving injury caused by the birth control pills Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella. As we have previously reported, these products, known as fourth generation birth control pills, are believed to cause serious injury including heart attack, stroke, deep-vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and gall stones.
As of the date this article was written, our firm has filed four cases against the manufacturers of Yaz and Yasmin, and we expect to file at least three more lawsuits by the time this issue is published. Thus far, we have filed suits in the Court of Common Pleas of Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, where consolidated litigation is proceeding before Judge Moss.
One of the cases our firm has filed is on behalf of an otherwise healthy young woman who had to have her gallbladder removed when she was 18 years old. The diuretic component of Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella caused her body to dehydrate, and thereby caused stones to form in the gall bladder. The Plaintiff suffered significant pain both before and after surgery, and continues to suffer from lingering digestive pain and problems. Unfortunately, her experience is quite typical of the cases we are reviewing.
Our firm is working on many cases involving Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella. For more information on those cases or the subject generally, you may contact Alyce Addison or Andy Birchfield in our firm at Alyce.Addison@beasleyallen.com or at Andy.Birchfield@beasleyallen.com.
