Nationwide Yaz®, Yasmin® and Ocella® Side Effect Lawyers
The increased chance of developing blood clots while taking Yaz®, Yasmin® and Ocella®, may also result in a greater chance of having a stroke. Strokes are medical emergencies and can result in serious disability or death.
Symptoms of a Stroke
Strokes usually come on quickly and with no warning. They may slowly get worse or they may stop and start, depending on where in the brain the stroke occurs. Women who are taking Yaz®, Yasmin®, Ocella® or any other type of birth control medication should seek immediate medical attention if they experience any of these symptoms:
- Sudden coordination problems such as difficulty walking
- Sudden severe dizziness or headache
- Loss of consciousness
- Speech problems or inability to talk
- Vision problems
Initially, strokes are treated with blood thinning medications or angioplasty. Long-term treatment may take many months or years and include speech therapy and physical therapy. Victims may be unable to work at all or continue their previous careers.
Costs of a Stroke
There are significant emotional and financial costs associated with having a stroke. Full recovery may not occur and claimants could experience greatly reduced income because they cannot work or need to change careers. Expenses can include hospital bills, as well as the costs of physical therapy, vocational counseling, speech therapy and adaptive medical equipment so they can drive or live at home.
The emotional costs may be just as significant. People may experience a great sense of loss because their ability to think, talk or act is forever changed. The pain and depression caused by these losses can be overwhelming. Our attorneys can assist in establishing claims for damages associated with both the emotional and financial losses and develop strong cases for clients who have suffered strokes as a result of Yaz®, Yasmin® and Ocella®.
