Judge Grants Extension In Yaz Lawsuit
As early as 2011 there were reports of women and teenage girls dying from blood clot related medical problems that have now officially been linked to Yaz. When the problems were first reported the manufacturer denied any responsibility for the deaths and other medical issues related to Yaz however, the drug company is working diligently with those who have filed Yaz Lawsuits to settle the cases without the need for a trail, although they still refuse to admit any liability or wrong doing.
The judge assigned to handle the Yaz Lawsuit, Multi District Litigation, often referred to as the Yaz Class Action Lawsuit, has granted more time to Bayer, the maker of Yaz and the plaintiff law firms representing over 11,000 claimants, to settle the case before a trail begins.
New Yaz Lawsuits are still being filed. Given that there was no official recognition of the relationship between Yaz and blood clot related medical problems until 2011, the time limit to file Yaz Lawsuits has not expired. Women who took Yaz and suffered blood clot related problems such as strokes, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolisms.
Although the United States Food and Drug Administration did not officially announce the problems associated with Yaz until 2011, numerous lawsuits had already been filed. The issue with Yaz that has led to the massive number of lawsuits being filed stems from one of the ingredients in Yaz, drospirenone.
