The Average Yaz/Yasmin Lawsuit Settlement Is $212,000

The victims of Yaz/Yasmin have collectively recovered $402.6 million in lawsuit settlements to date, but the drug's manufacturer, Bayer AG, expects that number to continue to skyrocket. The drug manufacturer is shelling out millions in settlements because of undisclosed side effects caused by birth-control drugs Yaz and Yasmin.

Medical studies have suggested that contraceptives containing drospirenone, such as Yaz/Yasmin, may triple the risk for potentially fatal blood clots. The data is convincing, as evidenced by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) recent mandate for Bayer to include blood clot warnings on the labels of Yaz and Yasmin. However, these warnings came too late for many women, who have already suffered blood clots while taking the drugs.

Many of these victims - or their surviving families - have sought legal recourse in product liability lawsuits. Of the product liability and wrongful death lawsuits that Bayer has settled so far, the average payout is $212,000.

If you or a loved one has been seriously harmed by Yaz/Yasmin, contact a skilled Ohio dangerous drugs attorney to explore your options and preserve your legal right to a claim.
