Ocella Class Action Lawsuit 2013: Birth Control Side Effect Claim


Ocella Class Action Lawsuit 2013: Birth Control Side Effect ClaimOur law firm is currently investigating class action and single party claims against manufacturers and distributors of Ocella for the development of dangerous side effects including deep vein thrombosis, blood clots, pulmonary embolism and heart attacks. Similar to Yaz and Yasmin, Ocella works as a contraceptive by dispersing small amounts of drospirenone and ethinylestradol  altering the lining of the cervix and uterus. Drospirenone, the active mediation in Ocella, has also been prescribed to treat several medical issues associated including weight gain, acne, bloating, fatigue, headaches and more. Several recent scientific studies have established a causal link between the use of counteractive medication containing the active ingredient dropirenone –  ethinylestradol  and the development of DVT, Pulmonary embolism (PE)m blood clots, strokes, and heart attacks.

  • Commonality: A similar cause of action base on an issue of law or an issue of fact in present amongst the members of the class.
  • Adequacy: The class representative is able to adequate represent the claims of the other class members in the court of law.
  • Typicality: The issue at law or fact of the class head is typical of those of the other class members.

A design defect can be proven by showing the existence of an alternative bus not used design with a similar level of efficacy but a significantly lower level of reduced harm as the time of production. 2. Defect in the manufacturing process so that the final distributed product is markedly different and as a result significantly more dangerous than it original intended design.
