New Lawsuit Filed Blaming DVT on Yasmin: AttorneyOne.com Warns the Threat of Severe Adverse Events from Yasmin Remains

February 23, 2012

According to court documents, on February 15th, 2012, North Dakota resident Donna L. Praus filed a lawsuit (case no. 3:2012cv20009) in the Illinois Southern District Court against Bayer Pharmaceuticals, the company manufacturing Yasmin, claiming that she suffered an alleged deep vein thrombosis (DVT) from taking Yasmin and its similar sister Yaz. Yasmin is a birth control pill that has been on the market since 2001. Last month, as reported by the Washington monthly and BMJ, an advisory committee to the Food and Drug Administration said that labels on the popular Yaz and Yasmin pills needed to be strengthened and more information should be provided about the pills possibly causing blood clots in women. Now, AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, can provide helpful, proven advice and simple solutions including how to get in contact with legal counsel so anyone can easily and inexpensively deal with cases of Yasmin severe adverse events. http://www.attorneyone.com/yasmin-lawsuits/

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 23, 2012

The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better Donna L.Praus. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.

On February 15th, 2012, North Dakota resident Donna L. Praus filed a lawsuit (case no. 3:2012cv20009) in the Illinois Southern District Court against Bayer Pharmaceuticals, the company manufacturing Yasmin, claiming that she suffered an alleged deep vein thrombosis from taking Yasmin and Yaz. Deep vein thrombosis is a condition in which a blood clot forms in a vein deep in the body and possibly lodging in an artery in the lungs and blocking blood flow (pulmonary embolism).

According to the lawsuit information, the plaintiff claims that she started taking Yasmin and Yaz (its similar sister) in 2002 as directed. Two years later, in 2004, she suffered an alleged deep vein thrombosis sustaining severe and permanent injuries. Praus mentions that women using the birth control pills are at risk of dangerous side effects including blood clots, gallbladder disease and stroke.

AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, can provide helpful advice and simple solutions including how to get in contact with legal counsel so that, in case of Yasmin severe adverse events, someone can easily and inexpensively deal with it. As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that threat of severe Yasmin adverse events remains. For that reason, our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”

On October 27, 2011, the FDA published a drug study report revealing that Yasmin and other birth control pills containing the progestin “drospirenone” were related to an increased risk for side effects like DVT and ischemic stroke. In April 2002, the British Medical Journal (BMJ) reported that the Dutch College of General Practitioners recommended the prescription of older birth control pills instead of Yasmin because of reports of blood clots among women taking the pill.

AttorneyOne.com has further information on Yasmin and Yaz lawsuits including how to get in contact with legal counsel.
