Can You Get Medical Records?

If a person develops a serious medical condition as a result of using the birth control medications Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella, they may need to gather their health records if they want to file a lawsuit. However, these records are protected by law under doctor-patient confidentiality regulations. This can make releasing records for a public courtroom somewhat complicated.

If you’ve suffered because of the birth control medications Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella, you may be eligible to file for compensation from the responsible drug manufacturer. For more information regarding your rights as an injured patient, contact a Yasmin lawyer of Williams Kherkher today by calling 800-761-3187.

Medical Records and Birth Control Injury Lawsuits

There are a few rules in place to protect patients from having others go through their records without their permission. Generally speaking, a person can obtain their own records whenever they need them. However, there some exceptions to this:

  • Information that may prove dangerous to a patient’s safety
  • Information that is part of a lawsuit, with exception to that patient’s own lawsuit
  • Information collected for psychological treatments

In these situations, a doctor may give up this information if either they are given legal permission to do so or if they have decided that the information won’t cause harm to the patient. In cases of birth control injuries, it’s rare for information to be withheld for any reason other than a separate lawsuit.
