Adding to its legal woes over the Yaz oral birth control pill, Bayer Pharmaceuticals is the defendant in a Michigan lawsuit by a woman who alleges that the pill caused her to have her gallbladder removed and suffer blood clots.
Hundreds of Yaz or Yasmin pending lawsuits that charged the manufacturer with failing to adequately research the pills or warn about the possible dangerous and life-threatening side effects have been consolidated in Illinois federal court. The Michigan case will also be transferred to the Illinois court’s jurisdiction.
Michigan law protects manufacturers from liability for FDA-approved drugs. However, the woman’s attorney claims that the production and marketing of Yaz was so over the line that the Michigan immunity law may not apply.
If you or a loved one has been harmed by any of the side effects of these oral birth control products, you may be entitled to seek money damages in a Yaz or Yasmin lawsuit against the manufacturer.
