In the state of Ohio, if you have suffered an injury or illness induced by taking Yaz or Yasmin, you only have a certain amount of time in which to file a lawsuit. This span of time is referred to as the statute of limitations.
The statute of limitations varies from state to state. In Ohio, you have two years to file personal injury, wrongful death and products liability claims.
How much time you have to file your case can also depend on which state the injury occurred, the type of injury, the state where the lawsuit is filed, the age of the affected person and whether the suit is for a wrongful death.
If you think your illness or injury is the effect of taking Yaz or Yasmin birth control pills, it is vital to contact a Yaz injury lawyer as soon as possible.
Your lawyer can help you determine whether or not you have a case. If you do, that lawyer will assist you in navigating the legal process and ensuring you receive the claim you deserve.
