PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, reported today that Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals Inc. settled for $56.9 million, for thousands of claims from women victims who took the company's birth control products Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella. The settlement was announced August 3rd. The women involved suffered serious and life-altering side effects such as: arterial blood clots, deep vein thrombosis, gallbladder irregularities, strokes, and heart attacks. The lawsuits started being filed in the late 2000's, and since the initial filings, more than 12,000 people came forward with claims against the company regarding the birth control products in question. In 2012, Bayer settled approximately 1,900 cases for about $400 million, resulting in awards of about $212,000 per case. This most recent settlement would resolve lawsuits pending in a multidistrict litigation in federal court in Illinois (MDL 2100), as well as claims filed in California, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
Birth control lawsuits have been growing since the 2000's, and concerns of blood clots and serious side effects have been made public for quite some time. In light of the recent settlement, Legal-Bay is announcing a commitment to aiding birth control plaintiffs who are in need of lawsuit funding or lawsuit help services, such as finding a birth control lawyer or law firm.
Patty Kirby, COO and Head of Client Relations of Legal-Bay, commented on the recent settlement, "We are happy to hear that the second batch of settlements for the Yaz birth control has been announced. However, we expect that payments will not be made until 2016."
