Gianvi (Generic YAZ), Beyaz, And Safyral Causing Blood Clots In Lung (PE) Or Legs (DVT) Are Cases That Can Get Settlements

Blood Clots
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
Pulmonary Embolism (PE)
Cerebrovascular Accidents
Heart Attack

During 2013 Bayer Has Had More Than 2000 YAZ / Yasmin Lawsuits For Blood Clots That Are Not Settled

September 2013 Bayer Corporate Report Shows Apparent Progress In Settlement Negotiations, But A Number Of More Serious Cases Are Still Pending

SUMMARY: From the Bayer Stockholders’ Newsletter, Financial Report as of September 30, 2013, Third quarter of 2013:

As of October 18, 2013, Bayer had reached agreements, without admission of liability, to settle the claims of approximately 7,660 claimants in the U.S. for a total amount of about US$1.575 billion. Bayer has only been settling claims in the U.S.for venous clot injuries (deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism).... Such injuries are alleged by about 2,300 of the pending unsettled claimants. Bayer will continue to consider the option of settling such individual lawsuits in the U.S. on a case-by-case basis.

It remains to be seen whether there will be any court trials for YAZ, Yasmin, Ocella, Gianvi, Beyaz, and Safyral lawsuits involving arterial clots, which can cause strokes and other serious side effects. Reportedly, thus far the lawyers for Bayer have refused to negotiate these types of cases.
