Bayer’s pockets opened wider for more Yaz Lawsuit and Yasmin Lawsuit settlements. Bayer began offering to pay Yaz settlements and Yasmin Lawsuit settlements in 2012. To date, Yaz Lawsuit cases have been focused on serious blood clot injuries including some claims of blood clot related Yaz deaths. Today Thompson Reuters News and Insights reported Bayer has agreed to Yaz lawsuit settlements involving gallbladder injuries and/or gallbladder disease. The caveats, like the drug, may make for additional potentially nasty Yaz side effects.
Bayer has agreed to pay over a billion dollars for Yaz lawsuit settlements involving blood clot injuries. Yaz settlements for blood clots have averaged over $200,000.00 and are taken on contingency with the Yaz lawyer getting paid only if/after the case is won or settles. For women suffering possible Yaz gallbladder injury reportedly, the agreed upon amounts are much, much less.
A Yaz lawsuit is taken on contingency meaning potential victims of Yaz blood clot injury have access to a Yaz lawyer and to the justice system without needing to pay money up front. A Yaz lawyer must use and risk their own resources to pursue a claim. Many Yaz lawsuit cases claiming blood clot injury have already resulted in a significant Yaz settlement. Women that have suffered Yaz blood clots are urged to seek the advice of a Yaz lawyer but that may not turn out to be the case for suffers of potential gallbladder injury.
Bayer’s agreement to entertain Yaz settlements for gallbladder injury is fraught with potential difficulty for women that did not have a potential Yaz blood clot but instead had their gallbladder removed say some Yaz lawyers.
Bayer, reportedly citing lack of evidence Yaz or Yasmin cause gallbladder injury, Bayer placed significant caps on the settlements. The total amount allotted, say’s the article in Reuters, is 24 million, a much lower number than that set aside for Yaz lawsuit cases for Yaz potential Yaz blood clot injury. It has been estimated that gallbladder settlements will range between $2000 and $3000 dollars, depending on degree of injury and number of cases filed.
Bayer reportedly offered to the latest in Yaz settlement agreements to avoid litigation but continues to deny any culpability for any injuries alleged in Yaz lawsuit cases. The bottom-line literally, is yes, Bayer has now agreed to pay Yaz settlements for gallbladder injury but will the potential victims have difficulty finding a pathway to payment? Fortunately, women that may have suffered potentially deadly Yaz blood clot injury have more potential for hope of possible financial compensation.
