$14 Million Payout After Yasmin Pills Caused Stroke

A woman in Chicago was awarded $14 million after the birth control drug her doctor prescribed to her allegedly caused a severe stroke and left her confined to a wheelchair. She has been unable to move the entire left side of her body since the time of the stroke, 7 years ago.

After a two-week-long trial, the jury decided on Friday that Dr. Zbigniew Aniol must pay the costly settlement to Mariola Zapalski and her husband, Rafal Zapalski, to compensate for what the plaintiffs believe will be a lifetime of medical bills.

Ms. Zapalski suffered a stroke just 13 days after Dr. Aniol wrote her a prescription for the birth control drug Yasmin. Attorneys for the woman say her doctor failed to warn of potential side effects and other dangers and wrote the script without assessing applicable risk factors.
