If you or someone you care about has taken Yaz and suffered severe injuries or life-threatening illnesses as a result, then it is important that you talk with a Tennessee Yaz lawyer right away. According to information from the Yaz Resource group, a patient advocacy group, Bayer has decided to have more funds to settle claims for those injured while taking Yaz. However, there is a limited amount of time to file a claim. Anyone who suffered from a blood clot, DVT, stroke, or Pulmonary Embolism following the use of Yaz or Yasmin is encouraged to contact a Tennessee Yaz lawyer about their legal rights.
The British Medical Journal published a study on October 25, 2011, from researchers at The University of Copenhagen which linked the hormone in Yaz to blood clots. On October 27, 2011, the Food and Drug Administration released its study more than 800,000 women which found drugs like Yaz could increase the risk of blood clots, DVT and pulmonary embolism by as much as seventy-four percent. According to recent news reports as of July 31st, the Bayer Company has settled almost 1,900 Yaz Lawsuits for more than $400 million. Bayer has also doubled its reserves for the settlements to more than $610 million.
