Two more lawsuits on behalf of young women injured by the Yaz birth control pill. Yaz, as well as its precursor, Yasmin, have been associated with life-threatening cardiac events in some women, including heart attacks, blood clots and strokes. Both lawsuits were filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (Docket Nos. 09-CIV-8931 and 09-CIV-8843).
The Yaz lawsuits were filed on behalf of Judith M. Woodall and Tasha Marcell. The complaints allege that both women sustained severe and permanent personal injuries, pain, suffering, and emotional distress as a result of their use of Yaz. More specifically, according to her lawsuit, Ms. Woodall, a resident of Tennessee, first began using Yaz in approximately November 2008. That same month, she suffered a saddle pulmonary embolus and deep vein thrombosis.
Ms. Marcell, a resident of Georgia, began taking Yaz in October 2007. She also suffered a pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis shortly after she began using the medication.
The lawsuits further allege that Bayer Corporation and other defendants negligently and fraudulently represented that Yaz had been tested and found to be safe and effective and that the defendants concealed their knowledge of its defects. The lawsuits name Bayer Corporation, its subsidiaries, Berlex Laboratories, Inc. and Berlex, Inc. as defendants.
More than 200 lawsuits have been filed across the country on behalf of victims of Yaz and Yasmin side effects. State and federal lawsuits involving Yaz and Yasmin were recently consolidated and transferred to the Southern District of Illinois for centralized and coordinated pre-trial proceedings.
