Colorado Mass Tort Attorneys – Burg Simpson

Yaz / Yasmin

There is no other firm in the country that has helped more women receive fair compensation for injuries stemming from the use of Yaz, Yasmin and other Drosperinone-containing oral contraceptives. Our shareholders have led this litigation since 2009. Michael S. Burg was appointed to lead the national efforts by the federal judge overseeing the Yaz® litigation. Seth A. Katz has served as Chair of the Discovery Committee. Additionally, Janet G. Abaray has served as a Co-Chair of the Science Committee.

We have fought this fight since day one and have the combination of powerful resources and expertise to give you the greatest chance to receive a successful outcome.

To date, we have helped over 1,000 women receive compensation for the injuries they have suffered as a result of taking Yaz®. We continue to represent and help hundreds of others receive compensation.

No. We pay for all of the costs such as obtaining your medical records, filing fees, and expert reviews, if necessary. We receive reimbursement for these costs and a fee for our work if, and only if, Bayer pays your claim. If there is no recovery for you, then you owe us nothing.

Generally, injuries involving blood clots, such as pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis, are compensable. However, your claim must be supported by medical and prescription records. Once we have your signed medical authorizations, we can usually obtain these records quickly.

While it is impossible to predict how long litigation will take, for women asserting VTE (Venous Thromboembolic Event) claims as a result of the use of Yaz / Yasmin, the typical case is currently taking 8-10 months to complete the process. It can be either shorter or longer, but the process is streamlined and efficient.

Yes. The majority of women have recovered well from their injuries. However, if you suffered a blood clot and received medical treatment, then for some period of time you suffered from pain, disability, and discomfort. You are also at a higher risk for future clots and high risk pregnancies. Your injuries should not be minimized.

Yaz® is different from other birth control pills because it contains a different type of chemical that Bayer created called Drospirenone. Birth control pills containing this new chemical include Yasmin®, Yaz®, Ocella®, Gianvi®, Beyaz®, and Safyral®. If you used any of these products and had a blood clot, we can help you.

Women have received differing amounts of compensation. Ultimately, the value of your case will depend on the specific facts including your injuries, your medical condition, and the legal issues. If you have a claim, it is well worth your time to assert your rights.

We believe the time for filing a claim is short. We advise you to act now, without delay. Most injured women have already asserted claims. It is not too late. However, if you are indecisive and do not act quickly to pursue your claim, you risk losing the opportunity to receive just compensation.

In most cases, we can advise you if you have a valid claim within 45 days from the date we receive your paperwork. We are very experienced in this process.
