Birth Control

Los Angeles Birth Control Defect Attorneys: Mirena, Yaz/Yasmin

Birth control pills and devices, which have been on the market since the 1960s, have become so commonplace that many people assume birth control is safe in all forms. Yet, some of the most popular birth control drugs have caused serious injuries, illnesses and deaths.

Have you been injured by a defective birth control pill or device? Contact Girardi | Keese online or call 800-401-4530. Our Los Angeles birth control defect lawyers believe birth control companies should be held accountable when they fail to warn consumers of the injuries their drugs can cause.

Mirena, for example, is the most popular intrauterine device (IUD) on the market; it is implanted in more than 2 million women. It has also injured thousands of women, causing punctures in the uterus and other organs, infertility and even death.

In 2009, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of Mirena, that it was overstating the capabilities of the device and understating the risks. Minimizing the risks can be considered failure to warn in a product defect lawsuit. In other words, Bayer may be liable for the financial, physical and emotional injuries women have suffered as a result of their Mirena IUD implants.

Our Birth Control Defects Legal Practice

We currently handle the following birth control defect cases involving Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals' birth control pills and devices:

  • Mirena: Mirena is a hormonal IUD that has caused numerous injuries, including uterus embedment, uterus perforation, infertility, pelvic inflammatory disease and infections (including sepsis).
  • Yaz: Yaz, a birth control pill taken once every 24 days, has been linked to pulmonary embolism, blood clots and deep vein thrombosis.
  • Yasmin: Yasmin is a daily birth control pill that, like Yaz, contains drospirenone (synthetic progestin). Its side effects are similar to those experienced by women taking Yaz.
