Bayer has agreed to a settlement in 70 Yaz lawsuits. Lawyers expect that possibly thousands of Yaz cases will be resolved early this year. All of these settlements are for women who took Yaz/Yasmin and suffered deep vein thrombosis (blood clots) or a pulmonary embolism. More Yaz settlement details will be reported here as they become available, including the question on everyone’s mind: What were the Yaz settlement amounts?
While not unexpected, this is a big day for women who have been waiting for justice in these lawsuits.
If you are a woman who suffered a blood clot or a pulmonary embolism, and have been waiting to see how these settlements play out, you really should move quickly. You don’t want to miss out on the opportunity to get in on the class settlement (sort of) and you have to be concerned as to whether your case will be barred by the statute of limitations.
