How do I Join a Class Action for Yaz or Yasmin?



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.

Although lawsuits over pharmaceutical products that injury thousands of people are commonly referred to as a class action, Yaz and Yasmin injury lawsuits are being pursued by the lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. as individual cases. Claims are being reviewed for women who have suffered any of the following side effects:

New cases are no longer being accepted by Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. This page is maintained for informational purposes only.

After submitting our confidential form on-line, you will be contacted to discuss the circumstances surrounding your claim. After it is determined whether we believe we can causally connect an injury suffered by yourself or a family member to Yaz, Yasmin or generic versions of the birth control pills, marketed as Gianvi and Ocella, respectively, it is your decision whether to hire one of our Yasmin / Yaz “class action” lawyers.

Although similar in many respects, these product liability lawsuits are different from a Yaz class action lawsuit or Yasmin class action lawsuit. While the cases are managed in a manner similar to how a class action for Yaz would be handled during pretrial proceedings, each claim remains an individual case, with the plaintiffs making all final decisions about how to proceed on their claim. In addition, each individual’s Yasmin or Yaz attorney must establish that an injury was caused by side effects or the birth control pill.

Because the impact of a stroke from Yaz, blood clot from Yaz or gallbladder removal from Yaz is going to be different for every users, it is not possible for a large number of claims to be aggregated into one class representative.
