How is Compensation for Yasmin or Yaz Damages Determined?
Thousands of women throughout the United States are pursuing a Yaz lawsuit or Yasmin lawsuit to pursue compensation for injuries that were caused by the birth control pills. The amount of money that will be awarded for damages in each claim, either by way of settlement or trial, is determined based on the individual facts and circumstances of that case.
Please note that the lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are no longer taking on new cases involving Yaz/Yazmin. The content on this page is provided for informational purposes only.
There are a number of factors that will go into determining the amount of any Yasmin or Yaz compensation that is awarded. There is no “set” amount of money that will compensate a particular type of injury. Any potential Yasmine or Yaz settlement will be negotiated based on what a jury is likely to award in compensation. If the case proceeds to trial, a jury will take into account the nature of the claimed injury in each case, the severity of the damage and the economic impact of the Yaz or Yasmin injury.
In determining the amount of Yasmin or Yaz damages that may be awarded in a case, the following are some of the common factors that a jury will consider:
- The extent and duration of the injury suffered;
- The effect that the Yaz or Yasmin injury had on the overall physical and mental health or well-being of the plaintiff;
- The pain and mental anguish suffered in the past and which will likely be suffered in the future;
- The extent of any disfigurement or scarring (particularly in the case of gallbladder removal from Yaz or Yasmin or other surgery caused by the birth control pills);
- The amount of any past or furture medical expenses caused by Yaz or Yasmin;
- Any lost wages or loss of earning capacity;
Yaz and Yasmin are both once-per-day birth control pills that combine ethinyl estradiol (a form of estrogen) and a progestin known as drosperinone, which has never been used before in a birth control pill sold in the U.S. Drosperinone can increase blood potassium levels, a condition known as hyperkalemia, which can cause Yasmin or Yaz side effects.
The potential health problems of Yaz and Yasmin can include heart attack or stroke, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, gallbladder disease and sudden death.

The Yaz and Yasmin lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. were previously pursuing compensation for women throughout the United States as a result of the drug maker’s failure to adequately warn about the risk of serious and potentially fatal injury. All Yasmin and Yaz damages are pursued through a contingency fee, which means that there are no fees or expenses unless a recovery is obtained and there are never any out-of-pocket costs for clients.
