Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed Against Maker of Yaz / Yasmin
The Southeast Texas Record reports a woman has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Bayer Corp., Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals Inc., and Bayer Healthcare LLC. The woman is claiming the birth control pills she had taken, made by Bayer, caused the death of her unborn daughter.
Candice Richardson took the oral contraceptive Yaz/Yasmin and claims she then suffered blood clotting and related injuries which resulted in her being hospitalized and her daughter being stillborn at 27 weeks. She claims the manufacturers misrepresented the pills’ benefits and their adverse side effects. Richardson filed the wrongful death lawsuit on Sept. 18, 2009, individually and as a representative of the estate of her dead child.
