Handling financial stress after a Yaz birth control injury | Yaz injury lawsuits
It is especially difficult for the young women who have suffered serious injury while taking Yaz birth control. Many of the women are in their early 20’s, and working one or more jobs while trying to earn a college degree.
Unfortunately, the gallbladder removals, blot clots, strokes and pulmonary embolisms that have resulted from taking Yaz are leaving the women unable to work and incapable of attending classes.
But bill collectors won’t wait, and they often do not consider a medical condition as a reason not to pay debts, so the women are left facing defaulted student loans and constant calls from creditors, along with a long-term negative impact on their credit score, liens, lawsuits and judgments.
The insurmountable debt paired with the inability to return to work has many women seeing red for more than one reason. Anger at the fact that the medical condition was caused by the negligence of Bayer Corporation in failing to disclose the health risks of taking Yaz, as well as frustration of having to struggle with finances at a time when she should be focusing on recovering her health can cause additional, unneeded stress.
That is why Zoll, Kranz and Borgess want to provide women affected by Yaz with a series of blogs on how to handle the financial stress of an injury resulting from the birth control.
Check back frequently for tips on staying organized and keeping open lines of communication with your doctors and attorney. We will also discuss how to recognize the disadvantages of working with companies who may offer a settlement advance, and what the fine print really means.
