Chicago Dangerous Birth Control Lawyer

An unplanned pregnancy may be life-shattering news to women who have no desire for children in their present lives. Therefore, deciding on the right type of birth control is imperative for the life and health of any woman. Many women place full trust in a medical practitioner to administer the proper type of contraceptive that will suit their needs while procuring their health and well-being. In recent times, birth control manufacturers have been recalling birth control medications at an alarming rate. In February 2012 alone, drug manufacturer Pfizer recalled nearly 1 million birth control pills as a result of a packaging error. Placebo pills were accidentally packaged alongside daily active pill cycle packets. The packaging mishap causes irregular bleeding and unplanned pregnancy risk for women.

The dangers that certain contraceptives pose have proven to be far more life-threatening. Drug manufacturer Bayer Corporation has been under the constant barrage of negative media for its production of dangerous birth control pill Yaz or Yasmin.

Dangers of Birth Control Yaz or Yasmin

The use of the oral birth control pill Yaz or Yasmin has reportedly been the cause of several life-threatening injuries and risks. Some of the most adverse side effects of the drug have been:

  • Strokes and heart attacks
  • Seizures
  • Headaches
  • Liver Disease and Kidney Failure
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
  • Pulmonary Embolism (PE)
  • Blood Clots
  • Wrongful Death

The dangerous birth control pill manufacturer disregarded warnings made by The US Food and Drug Administration to include warning labels that outlined potential risks and side effects for the contraceptive pill. The Bayer Corporation utilized marketing and advertising campaigns to greatly diminish and conceal the life-threatening dangers and health risks of the pill.

Recent studies demonstrated that the claims made by the birth control distributor were misleading and erroneous. Hundreds of women who relied on the claims the company made, were severely injured. Moreover, the dangerous birth control pill was proven to pose a higher risk for blood clotting.

The number of injuries in women who used the life-threatening birth control pill rapidly increased, and so did the lawsuits.

The Bayer Corporation acknowledged over 15,000 lawsuits as part of their lawsuit settlement.
