YAZ CLAIMS SETTLEMENTS EXPLORED – LAWSUITS CONTINUE
The history of YAZ CLAIMS and ongoing litigation involving over 11,000+ personal injury lawsuits is explained on other pages of this site here and here. Generally, all cases regardless of the state where they originated have been consolidated and coordinated in centralized proceedings. YAZ CLAIMS involved in these proceedings are not class actions, rather they are mass tort cases where each case is treated invididually. As a result, the discovery process where the parties to the litigation exchange testimony, documents and evidence common to all the cases is coordinated. However, the background information, medical records and evidence for each YAZ CLAIM is gathered by parties responsible for individual YAZ CLAIMS.
After 2 years of national litigation, YAZ CLAIM lawsuits were scheduled for civil jury trials in multiple jurisdictions or venues. The presentation of evidence to juries was scheduled to commence in early January 2012. These “Bellwether” Trials have been postponed, in all venues, as the parties explore potential settlements on a case by case basis. Certain deadlines remain in place to encourage the exchange of information and timely submission of case sensitive evidence. BAYER, the parent of the manufacturer, BAYER HEALTHCARE PHARMACEUTICALS, has announced in their Annual Report that 70 settlements were reached as of February 28, 2012.
To be considered any YAZ CLAIM should be timely filed. This places the potential defendants on notice of the claim against it and initiates the information gathering process. Every State has a different time period and consideration regarding what is timely under the factual circumstances. This is often called the “Statute of Limitations” or “Statute of Repose”. Initiating an investigation of a YAZ CLAIM also involves the evaluation of this time sensitive question, which is resolved on a case by case basis. Prior to filing a lawsuit, the potential YAZ CLAIM is investigated and information regarding use and the claimed injury is verified. Pursuit of any lawsuit, or potential settlement requires initiation of the YAZ CLAIMS process and screening.
