Bayer Corp. may need to prepare for years of defending its birth control pill, Yaz, in court. The company currently faces at least 129 Yaz-related lawsuits, all of which allege the drug caused plaintiffs to suffer heart attacks, strokes, cardiac arrhythmias, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, gallbladder disease and, in some cases, sudden death. Product liability plaintiffs attorneys predict thousands more will be filed in the coming months and years.
