Australian Women File Yaz Lawsuits

By | Pharmaceutical litigation, Uncategorized, Yaz/Yasmin

yaz-lawsuit-settlements-yasmin-lawsuit-settlementsHow can you make the right decision without proper direction? Many women have asked themselves that question after their life-changing experiences using Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella. These women suffered serious Yaz side effects, such as a heart attack, stroke, deep vein thrombosis, or pulmonary embolism. And they’ve survived to share their stories, and to fight for their day in court.

These women want the maker of Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella to be held responsible for a failure to warn health care providers and patients about the serious risks of using these contraceptive pills.

An article recently published by The Age, an Australian news agency, shared the experience of Amy Walker. Described as a healthy mother of three, Walker suffered a stroke―with only her young daughters present to help with contacting emergency responders.

This was a traumatic experience for the entire family.

According to Walker, the recovery period was taxing. The Age article stated that Walker “spent…the next few months unable to drive, cook or adequately care for her daughters.”

Experiences like these have pushed women to seek legal action. More than 1,000 Australian women, Walker included, have joined a Yaz class action lawsuit targeted at Bayer.

If you suffered from a Yaz heart attack, stroke, or blood clot, understand that you are not alone. There are women across the world who have been similarly impacted, and who are fighting to hold responsible the pharmaceutical giant behind Yaz. And the same goes for Yasmin and Ocella.

We are a law firm that is currently investigating Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella cases. Carey Danis & Lowe offers free case evaluations, during which one of our experienced Yaz lawyers can walk you through your legal options, and whether filing a Yaz lawsuit is the right decision for you.

Yaz & Yasmin Lawsuits to Be Remanded

By | Pharmaceutical litigation, Uncategorized, Yaz/Yasmin

yaz_lawsuit_yasmin_side_effects_lawsuits_dvt_blood_clot_settlementsSettling Yaz and Yasmin lawsuits in the Yaz and Yasmin multidistrict litigation (MDL) is a slow process, a fact recently expressed by the federal judge managing the MDL. It appears that the cause of the slow process is Bayer’s legal strategy, which U.S. District Judge David R. Herndon likened to attrition.

In a document filed in mid-February 2015, Judge Herndon described Bayer’s approach to settlement as either an effort to wear down the other parties, or an expectation that “an entire group of catastrophically injured women, for the most part, [will] simply drop their claims”.

In order to more quickly settle these Yaz and Yasmin lawsuits, of which there are 3,400 still pending, the court will request on or around July 1 that the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) remand a group of cases to their home districts for trial.

In addition to remanding certain lawsuits, the court rescheduled the trial of a case involving the plaintiff, Pamela Schuchert, to start on June 15. According to a court document, the Schuchert trial will have a 10-day limit.

Update on New Jersey Mirena IUD Lawsuits

By | Mirena, Pharmaceutical litigation, Uncategorized

mirenalawsuitIn mid-December 2014, a new case management order (CMO) was filed in the New Jersey Mirena IUD multicounty litigation (MCL). The CMO detailed the defendant’s request to file motions for summary judgment on statute of limitations. Judge Brian R. Martinotti denied the request without prejudice.

The defendant filed their request as they most likely believe that the statute of limitations will preclude plaintiffs from winning a Mirena IUD lawsuit.

The case management order also laid out dates for future status conferences. The next status conference will take place on January 20, 2015.

As of December 15, 2014, there are 1,375 Mirena IUD lawsuits pending in the New Jersey Superior Court in Bergen County.

Ontario Yaz & Yasmin Class Action Lawsuit Approved

By | Pharmaceutical litigation, Uncategorized, Yaz/Yasmin

yaz_lawsuit_bayer_multidistrict_litigation_yaz_settlements_yaz_yasmin_lawsuit_settlementsThe Ontario Superior Court of Justice has approved a Yaz and Yasmin class action lawsuit. The lawsuit includes all women residing in Ontario and Quebec who used Yaz and/or Yasmin from 2004 – 2011.

The unique aspect of this class action lawsuit is that it automatically includes Yaz and Yasmin users, regardless of whether or not they have formally requested inclusion in the case. The legal representatives of the plaintiffs have posted information about how to opt-out of the case. If a woman prefers to opt-out, she must do so before February 9, 2015.

This Yaz and Yasmin class action lawsuit targets the drugs’ manufacturer, Bayer, and centers around injuries suffered by plaintiffs. These Yaz and Yasmin injuries include blood clots, pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, gallbladder disease, and stroke. The Canadian case alleges that Bayer was aware of the risks associated with both of their contraceptive drugs, but failed to give proper warning to health care providers and patients regarding these serious side effects.

Similar suits have been filed in the U.S. by Carey Danis & Lowe on behalf of women whose lives have been forever changed by these two contraceptive drugs, as well as by the generic version, Ocella.

Yaz & Yasmin Lawsuit Update: Israeli Women & Yasmin Lawsuits

By | Pharmaceutical litigation, Uncategorized, Yaz/Yasmin

bayerIsraeli women who have suffered injuries, such as blood clots and pulmonary embolism, from the use of the birth control pill Yasmin are standing up against Bayer. These women have applied to file a Yasmin class action lawsuit against the drug’s manufacturer, Bayer.

According to Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, the class action lawsuit calls for compensation in the amount of NIS 204 million, which is over $53 million USD. The women involved in the Yasmin lawsuit claim that Bayer was negligent in warning patients and healthcare providers about the risks associated with use of the birth control pill.

In fact, the Haaretz article goes on to explain that the proposed suit alleges that Bayer was aware of the blood clot risk, but failed to provide sufficient update.

Bayer did eventually distribute safety information for Yasmin that included details on the blood clot risk. However, as the updated information only appeared in a safety pamphlet, this distribution method was insufficient in spreading the word on such a deadly Yasmin side effect, according to the women involved in the lawsuit.

One of the women involved in the case, Ruth Teitler, used Yasmin, and then suffered a pulmonary embolism. She told Haaretz that, after a year of using Yasmin, she experienced chest pain and trouble breathing to such a degree that she went to the hospital.

Once there, x-rays revealed that her lungs were overrun with blood clots.

Mirena Lawsuit Numbers Continue to Rise

By | Mirena, Pharmaceutical litigation, Uncategorized

mirenaThe Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) released a document on October 15, 2014 that supplied an up-to-date pending lawsuit count for the Mirena multidistrict litigation (MDL) being heard in a federal court in New York. According to this document, there are currently 1,042 Mirena lawsuits pending before U.S. District Judge Cathy Seibel.

This update from the JPML makes it clear that the Mirena intrauterine device (IUD) continues to cause serious injuries to women.

Some known Mirena side effects include perforation, device migration, and infection.

Such injuries could have been prevented if product transparency and honesty were of any importance to the manufacturer of the Mirena. However, in this situation, Bayer misrepresented this contraceptive device in marketing campaigns by making claims about it being a safe and effective choice for women. As the Mirena lawsuits in New York indicate, these claims are false and deceptive.

American Academy of Pediatrics on IUDs

By | Mirena, Pharmaceutical litigation, Uncategorized

mirena_mdl_lawsuit_dvt_blood_clot_settlementsThe American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has announced their position on the use of intrauterine devices (IUDs), a form of birth control, by teenage girls. The AAP came to the decision that IUDs, such as the Mirena IUD, which is manufactured by Bayer, provide more dependability than other forms of birth control.

Supporting the use of a form of birth control that more reliably prevents unwanted pregnancies is a sound stance, especially as it concerns young people. However, the Mirena IUD is an imperfect product. As such, if it is to be used by young people, it is of the utmost importance that they be made aware of some of the more serious Mirena IUD side effects.

The Mirena IUD has been known to dislodge and migrate to other parts of the body. In some cases, women have been informed by their doctors that their Mirena IUD has perforated their uterine wall. Mirena IUD perforation can lead to organ damage and infection.

Mirena IUD Users Suffer Serious Injuries, Says ABC News in Detroit

By | Defective Medical Device litigation, Mirena, Uncategorized

mirena_iud_lawsuit_settlements_class_action_lawsuit_mirena_mdlThe ABC News station in Detroit, WXYZ Detroit, aired a report in late August 2014 on Mirena intrauterine device (IUD) cases in the U.S. The news story chronicled one woman’s tragic experience with Bayer’s flawed contraceptive device.

After seeing her doctor to receive the Mirena IUD, the woman, named Sara, had to have the device removed surgically, as it has perforated her uterus, a phenomenon often referred to as Mirena IUD uterine perforation, or uterine rupture.

The WXYZ Detroit report also revealed the vast number of complaints filed with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) about the Mirena IUD, and the sometimes serious injuries that motivated filing the FDA complaint in the first place. According to the data gathered by the Detroit news channel, the FDA has received almost 5,000 adverse event reports about Mirena device dislocation, what is also termed as device migration, wherein the contraceptive device dislodges from the uterus, and travels to other parts of the body.

There have been many cases in which Mirena IUDs that have dislodged and have migrated elsewhere in the body have caused serious internal damage.

As detailed in the Detroit news report, one woman suffered liver lacerations from the Mirena IUD, and another woman, only in her early twenties, had to undergo a hysterectomy and an appendectomy as a result of Mirena IUD migration.

From such horrific accounts, it is clear that the Mirena IUD poses serious health risks to women.

Carey Danis & Lowe Represents Mirena IUD Users

If you have suffered an injury, or injuries, from the Mirena IUD, Carey Danis & Lowe asks you to pause to consider two things.

Mirena IUD May Cause Brain Injuries

By | Defective Medical Device litigation, Mirena, Pharmaceutical litigation, Uncategorized

mirena_mdl_lawsuit_dvt_blood_clot_settlementsThere is speculation that Bayer’s contraceptive device notorious for uterine perforation and device migration may seriously impact brain health. Women who have used the device in question, the Mirena intrauterine device (IUD), have filed lawsuits against Bayer alleging that they sustained brain injuries, specifically a health complication known as pseudotumor cerebri, after using the product.

The Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) recently reviewed a request to consolidate Mirena IUD lawsuits involving claims of brain injury into its own multidistrict litigation (MDL).

With fewer Mirena IUD brain injury lawsuits compared to those lawsuits claiming uterine perforation, device migration, organ damage, and similar injuries, the JPML decided against forming a separate federal MDL for the lawsuits on brain injuries.
