06/25/2012 Yaz Lawsuit Irony : The announcement by the maker of the birth control pills Yaz and Yasmin , that they intend to settle a large number of the Yaz Lawsuit cases and Yasmin Lawsuit cases they currently face has created significant publicity. This increased publicity has led to an increased the number of contacts being received by Best Legal Source and Yasmin Lawyer groups in general. It would appear that many women who took Yasmin or Yaz and later developed a blood clot related injury were unaware that Yasmin or Yaz may have been the cause of their blood clot injury. It is somewhat ironic that the announcement that Bayer intends to settle many of the thousands of Yasmin Lawsuits and Yaz Lawsuits it currently faces may have received more mass media publicity that the FDA announcements received when the issue was first made public.
One possible explanation for the disparity in publicity received when the FDA announced the link between Yaz and Yazmin and Blood Clots versus the announcement by Bayer regarding settling outstanding Yaz and Yasmin Lawsuits might be quite simple. Drug manufacturers spend billions of dollars per year with mass media outlets advertising their products to the public. It would seem naïve to think that the billions spent by the Pharmaceutical industry on advertising did not give them a degree of influence over the mass media outlets they advertise with. The fact that the FDA announcement was not something that the maker of Yaz and Yasmin would have considered good publicity could explain why so little media coverage was given to the FDA announcement despite the fact that millions of women took these drugs. On the other hand, the announcement by the maker of Yaz and Yasmin that they intend to settle a large number of the Yaz and Yasmin Lawsuits they face was information that they wanted made public as announcing the settlement of a large number of lawsuits faced by a drug manufacturer can actually have a positive impact on their stock price. The market prefers knowns to unknowns.
Regardless of the intent, more women are now receiving the information that their blood clot related injury may have been caused by Yaz or Yasmin.
