For one reason or another, there are times when medications make their way to market despite the fact that it is unsafe. One of the best examples of this is Yaz, a birth control medication that has injured and killed many people.
Both Yaz birth control and Yasmin oral contraceptives have dangerous side effects, including but not limited to strokes, kidney problems, heart attack, deep vein thrombosis and gall bladder damage. Even worse, some women who have taken Yaz have died unexpectedly.
For quite some time, Bayer, the manufacturer of the drug, ran television commercials that discussed the many benefits of Yaz. However, soon enough, lawsuits were filed in relation to the side effects detailed above.
If you became ill as the result of taking Yaz or if a loved one died, it is important to learn more about your legal rights. You may be able to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer, which can help you collect compensation for:
-- Loss of earnings.
-- Pain and suffering, as well as mental anguish.
