Yaz Injury Lawsuits
It’s been several years since a wave of medical research and news reports alerted the public to the risk of serious injury or death to women who take Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella birth control pills.
While media attention may have subsided, the number of Yaz lawsuits continues to rise.

Learn More About Yaz
Yaz birth control pills are manufactured by Bayer HealthCare. At one time, Yaz was the leading birth control pill on the market and Bayer’s top-selling drug. However, studies have shown that women who take Yaz, Yasmin or Ocella run a risk of serious injury and death through blood clots, strokes and heart attacks.
Thousands of Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella injury and death lawsuits have been filed nationwide. Bayer has settled approximately 1,900 cases for more than $400 million. The average settlement is around $208,000.
Bayer has set aside another $600 million to pay future claims. This is good news for women and families who have not yet taken legal action.
