Florida woman claims Bayer birth control drug caused life-threatening blood clot

August 24, 2011

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A woman from Jacksonville, Fla., has filed a personal injury lawsuit against Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Inc., for severe and lasting injuries caused by Bayer''s birth control drug Yaz, according to a press release.

Tiffany Littles, 33, claims that Yaz is a dangerous prescription drug sold without adequate warnings about the risk of serious injuries.

In July 2008, Littles suffered a bilateral pulmonary emboli, cor pulmonale and deep vein thrombosis (DVT), more commonly known as a blood clot.

The complaint charges that Littles would not have been injured had Bayer properly warned patients of the dangers of using Yaz.
