Australian women file lawsuit against Bayer

Posted on Saturday, August 24th, 2013 at 11:18 am by Williams Hart   

Over 100 women in Australia recently sought legal counsel after a class action suit against Yasmin and Yaz maker was filed regarding the negative side effects from the birth control pill. According to reports, 123 Australian women are claiming they have suffered side effects like heart attacks, blood clots, and strokes from using the contraceptive pill.

Yasmin and Yaz maker Bayer recently settled a $1.4 billion lawsuit but they did not claim responsibility for the injuries linked to the birth control pills. A recent study said the newer combined pills with estrogen and progestogen hormone likely doubled the threat of suffering from fatal blood clots.

Sadly, in the U.S. alone, numerous women have suffered serious side effects from the use of Yasmin and Yaz contraceptive pills. If you are one of the women who has been negatively impacted by this dangerous pharmaceutical product, speak with the lawyers from Williams Hart by calling (713) 352-7071 today.


Canadian woman files lawsuit against Bayer

Posted on Monday, June 24th, 2013 at 3:18 pm by Williams Hart   

An Okanagan woman plans to file a lawsuit against the maker of the birth control pill Yasmin after she was diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism.

Sarah Somerville experienced an adverse reaction after only a month of taking the birth control pill Yasmin that caused her to exhibit heart attack symptoms. When she sought medical attention at Kelowna General Hospital, a doctor told her that she had suffered a pulmonary embolism. Discharge papers from the hospital did note that obesity, sedentary lifestyle, and birth control pills were the three main reasons why Somerville had the pulmonary embolism.

Somerville now plans to join the class action suit against the drug giant Bayer and seeks to have Yasmin removed from the market.

Unfortunately, in the U.S. alone there are many women who have been negatively impacted by the birth control pill Yasmin. If you have suffered physical complications due to using Yasmin, call an attorney from Williams Hart at 800-641-9810. We may be able to help you obtain financial compensation.
