YAZ LAWSUITS VERDICTS OR SETTLEMENTS ANTICIPATED IN 2012:
As of July 2011, there were over 9,500 lawsuits pending in the United States filed by YAZ LAWYERS seeking monetary damages for individual clients. These cases have been centralized in a number of specific venues, or jurisdictions, in organized Mass Tort proceedings. The YAZ LAWSUITS claim personal injuries from the use of YAZ, or other DRSP (DROSPIRENONE) containing birth control pills. The cases are being advanced in a Federal Multi District Litigation (MDL), coordinated Mass Tort proceedings in Pennsylvania, California and New Jersey. Lawyers from all over the United States are representing women in these proceedings.
As of this time, certain cases have been selected for Civil Jury Trials and are referred to as “Bellwether” cases because they will precede other Trials. The right to Trial by Jury is a fundamental right unique to the United States and allows a jury to evaluate evidence to determine the outcome of a case. The decision rendered by a jury is called a “verdict”. As of the writing of this post there have not been any YAZ VERDICTS for YAZ LAWSUITS. However, Civil Jury Trials are scheduled throughout early 2012 which will result in YAZ VERDICTS and jury determinations of liability and damages on YAZ LAWSUITS.
BAYER HEALTHCARE PHARMACEUTICALS is the current manufacturer of DRSP (DROSPIRENONE) containing birth control pills.
To seek monetary compensation for injuries claimed to have originated with YAZ, DRSP, or a DROSPIRENONE containing birth control, a person must have their case evaluated and considered for filing as a YAZ LAWSUIT by a YAZ LAWYER or YAZ ATTORNEY. FREE CASE EVALUATIONS, or YAZ LAWSUIT EVALUATIONS are available through the contact form below. Each State has a certain period of time within which a person must seek to file a lawsuit for injuries they are claiming, or to assert their legal rights. This time period is commonly referred to as a “Statute of Limitations”, or time within which to bring a claim or lawsuit. Given that the DRSP (DROSPIRENONE) family of contraceptives have been available in the U.S. for a decade more lawsuits are anticipated in the future as the FDA has repeatedly allowed the manufacturer – BAYER HEALTHCARE PHARMACEUTICALS – to update or change the warning label to the pills at issue. As a result, many women were not warned of risks that have come to light in recent months and discussed in other posts. Additionally, recent reports reveal that former FDA Commissioner, D. Kessler, has testified that the initial approval of the DRSP (DROSPIRENONE) family of pills was tainted by non-disclosure of important data or information. The pills have been confirmed as increasing the risk of blood clots in comparison to other pills and recent FDA hearings confirmed the need to update the warning label – for a 3rd time in the last 24 months – to communicate this risk to users.
