A stroke is a serious incident in which blood flow to areas of the brain is stopped temporarily. If the blood flow is stopped for any longer than a few seconds, oxygen cannot reach the brain and brain damage can occur. Because of this, complications often develop after the person has recovered from the stroke. The disabilities can be temporary or permanent, and may range considerably in severity and type. It all depends on the length of time blood flow was stopped and which areas of the brain were affected.
The birth control and acne medicines Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella have been linked with strokes in young women. If you took any of these medications and suffered a stroke, you may be able to pursue financial compensation from the manufacturer. The Yaz attorneys of Williams Kherkher are dedicated to helping victims of defective birth control. Contact our offices today at 800-761-3187.
Complications that can Follow a Stroke
After a stroke, a person may begin suffering from a number of conditions. Some of these include:
- Paralysis or loss of muscle movement
- Trouble talking and swallowing
- Memory loss and comprehension problems
- Pain, numbness, or strange sensations
- Change in behavior
If you are experiencing any of these complications after a stroke, the manufacturers of your prescription birth control pill may be to blame.
