Consolidated Yaz®, Yasmin® and Ocella® Side Effects Lawsuits
Wrongful death claims related to these birth control pills are part of a nationwide Yaz® and Yasmin® side effects lawsuit. Pre-litigation discovery and motions have been consolidated in the Federal District Court for the Southern District of Illinois in East St. Louis. This centralization, known as multidistrict litigation (MDL), allows cases to move forward more efficiently by streamlining the issues common to all of the claims. This is true of the cases arising from sudden death as well as those related to other side effects of the drugs. The Roberts Law Firm, P.C., is located less than one hour from this court. We are well-placed to handle these nationwide Yaz® and Yasmin® side effects lawsuits. We anticipate that Ocella® cases may be consolidated into an MDL in the near future.
Causes of Death in Cases Arising from Use of Yaz®, Yasmin® and Ocella®
All of the side effects attributed to these birth control medications may also lead to sudden death. The hormones used in the drugs can lead to an increased risk of blood clots that can lead to pulmonary embolisms and deep vein thrombosis (DVT). These can be fatal events, whatever the cause.
Blood clots can also lead to strokes, which can be fatal. They can cause immediate death or may result in serious brain injury and/or coma.
Heart attacks caused by clots that block the flow of blood to the heart can be fatal, despite improvements in the immediate treatment of myocardial infarction.
