YAZ LAWSUITS PENDING – NO YAZ RECALL, YET….
In December of 2011, an FDA Advisory Committe considered the future of the entire family of DROSPIRENONE (DRSP) containing pills. Embroiled in litigation since 2009, and the subject of multiple independent studies finding higher risks of blood clots, the pills future remains in jeopardy in 2013. Whether the FDA will revisit the future of the pills and enhanced warnings added to the packaging, since the onset of over 13,000 personal injury lawsuits, is open to debate, at least in the United States.
Emerging reports from Europe have revealed that the European Medicines Agency (EMA), at the behest of France, is re-evaluating the use of DROSPIRENONE (DRSP) containing pills in the European Union. The French initiative coincides with an announcement that the government would not reimburse users of certain pills, including DROSPIRENONE (DRSP) containing pills, because of higher risks of blood clots and complications that essentially burden the health care system. An analysis of related news reports appears here. As noted in this post here, Switzerland’s largest insurer has joined a pending lawsuit to seek reimbursement for medical benefits associated with at least one victim of the new generation of birth control pills.
As noted below, BAYER has continued to evaluate and resolve certain blood clot cases over the course of almost one year. However, thousands of cases remain pending in the United States in 2013. FREE CASE EVALUATIONS and no recovery, no fee contingency fee recoveries remain an option for all victims seeking assistance.
