In 2007, Yaz generated almost $500 million in revenue for Bayer in the U.S. alone. Yet, as shown above, recent studies have shown that Yaz (as well as Yasmin and Ocella) might not be as safe as first thought.
Consumers trust drug makers to provide safe, effective medications. When a pharmaceutical company acts negligently, its actions can result in serious side effects. Victims, however, may have a remedy by bringing a product liability claim against the drug’s maker.
All drug manufacturers are required to comprehensively test each product before seeking approval from the FDA. Additionally, each drug’s label must disclose full information about the product’s potential dangers. The failure of Bayer Pharmaceuticals to warn the public of the drugs’ side effects (such as heart attacks and strokes) has opened the company to pharmaceutical litigation.
