Yaz/Yasmin quickly became a household name among women eager to discover the benefit of a birth control pill marketed as innovative and simple to use. Once the U.S. Food Drug Administration (FDA) approved the drug in 2001, a steady stream of marketing ads ran on TV targeting the birth control pill to young women as a safe and healthy alternative to other birth control pills.
Unfortunately, the marketing efforts were misleading attempts to downplay the negative side effects of the birth control pill.

Complications Associated With Yaz/Yasmin
When first released, Yaz/Yasmin was marketed as any easy alternative to other birth control pills, known to even clear up mild acne and decrease water retention. By 2009, this became the best-selling birth control pill in the United States.
Unfortunately, the marketing efforts failed to explain the increased complications associated with Yaz/Yasmin, which was made with progestin, known to carry a higher risk for blood clotting. Consumers have also suffered other life-threatening side effects from the prescription drug, including:
- Gall bladder disease
- Pulmonary embolism
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Kidney failure
If you or your loved one has endured complications from the birth control, we will investigate thoroughly to uncover any acts of negligence. The pharmaceutical litigation attorneys at our firm work with industry-leading experts to help determine any liability factors, including false advertising, product defects and manufacturing defects. We will incorporate as much evidence as possible to help us clearly illustrate fault to jurors with no background in pharmaceutical litigation.
Our aggressive approach often prompts insurance companies to make large settlement offers covering medical expenses, rehabilitation, lost wages and other expenses incurred from medical malpractice. If the settlement offer is too low, we will not hesitate to pursue a favorable trial verdict.
