01/25/2013 Yaz Lawsuit Update on Accuracy of Yaz Lawsuit Settlement Amounts: A variety of reports have been made about the Average Yaz Lawsuit settlement amounts. Yaz Lawsuit settlement reports have indicated that the Average Yaz Lawsuit settlement amount is between two hundred and two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. The broad range of average Yaz Lawsuit settlement amounts have many confused. Ultimately the current reports on Yaz Lawsuit Settlement amounts may bear little resemblance to the final average settlement amount for Yaz Lawsuits once all cases have been settled.
Yaz Lawsuit Settlement Amounts
The reason the Yaz Lawsuit Average Settlement amounts may ultimately be far different from what is currently being reported is a result of two basic reasons. The first reason is that no all women who are eligible to file a Yaz Lawsuit have done so as of yet. It is unknown and unknowable how many women that were injured by Yaz have yet to file suit. There will come a time when the time limit to file a Yaz Lawsuit has expired and at that point and only at that point, will it be known how many Yaz Lawsuit cases will ultimately be filed against Bayer.
The second reason that the current Yaz Lawsuit average settlement amounts may not be accurate is due to the fact that it appears that Bayer may be taking longer to settle cases that will result in the largest payouts. This could be simply because these are more complex cases however, there may be another reason Bayer is delaying the settlement of cases that will result in large payouts. Bayer is owned by its stockholders and its stock is traded on the stock exchange. Massive lawsuits like the Yaz Case can negatively impact a stock price. The top executives at Bayer are required to keep their stock holders informed regarding anything that could have a significant negative impact on the company. By delaying settlement of the Yaz cases that will result in the largest payouts, the average Yaz Lawsuit Settlement Amount remains lower than it would be if the larger potential settlements were included in the average. If Bayer is able to delay the settlement of the cases that will result in the largest payouts until the time they can announce that the Yaz Lawsuit is essentially behind them, then the positive effect the news of the end of the Yaz Lawsuit could outweigh the negative news of any increase in the reported average Yaz Lawsuit Settlement. There is no way to know if Bayer is taking these factors into consideration in determining the order in which they settle Yaz cases, however from the stand point of protecting their stock price, the possibility exists.
