Yaz, Yasmin or Ocella Litigation
The law firm of Magaña, Cathcart & McCarthy represents persons across the United States in lawsuits against the manufacturers of Yasmin, Yaz, or their generic equivalent, Ocella, who have suffered serious side effects or lost a loved one from the use of these oral contraceptives. Use of these three birth control pills has been linked to Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), Pulmonary Embolism (PE), stroke, blood clots, gallbladder disease and gallbladder complications, heart attack, and death.
We are currently representing clients in injury lawsuits against Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals, Inc., the manufacturer of Yasmin and Yaz, and Barr Laboratories, the manufacturer of Ocella, and are investigating further cases involving injuries and deaths related to the use of these oral contraceptives. Yasmin was approved by the FDA in 2001 for birth control and for treatment of Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD), and Yaz was approved by the FDA in 2006. Yaz is the top-selling birth control pill in the United States. However, Bayer has been reprimanded on multiple occasions by the FDA for misleading television ads minimizing the risks of the drug and overstating the drug’s efficacy.
If you have suffered serious side effects or if you have lost a one as a result of the use of Yasmin, Yaz, or Ocella, you are faced with the difficult decision of whom to trust. For over sixty years, the attorneys at the law firm of Magaña, Cathcart & McCarthy have been advocating the rights of victims and have developed an international reputation for achieving results for our clients.
