Florida Woman Alleges Yaz Will Shorten Her Life

Filed January 25th, 2013 admin

A Florida resident has filed a lawsuit against the makers of the birth control pills Yaz and Yasmin and has named Bayer Pharmaceuticals as a defendant.

Latonia Jones, who filed the lawsuit on January 8, alleges that Bayer sold Yaz and Yasmin without providing a sufficient warning of the dangers associated with the medication. The use of these products caused Jones to suffer from stroke, pulmonary embolism, and cardiac arrhythmia, the lawsuit says. Jones also had to undergo an emergency surgery to have her gallbladder removed.

Jones began taking Yaz in 2007 on the advice of her OB/GYN and continued to take the birth control through 2010, the lawsuit alleges. She suffered from Yaz side effects, including permanent injuries and disabilities that will make long-term care necessary, the lawsuit says. Jones alleges that she did not know that her health problems were linked to Yaz until well after she became ill.

Jones also alleges that Bayer was negligent in its job to provide appropriate warnings to the public and medical professionals about the potential serious side effects of Yaz. She is seeking compensation for a shortened life span, hospital expenses, mental anguish, disfigurement, pain and suffering, and loss of wages.

This case may soon join hosts of other lawsuits that are pending in a multidistrict litigation (MDL) in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois.
