What happens if I decide to file an Effexor Birth Defect lawsuit?

If you decide to file a lawsuit seeking compensation for your damages from Effexor, our firm will work with you to assess your case and help you decide the best way to move forward. We'll work with you to gather relevant information about the case, obtain medical records, and perform a complete case evaluation.

When your case is filed and moves forward, a process known as "discovery" begins, where both sides in the lawsuit gather information and take statements under oath known as "depositions".

In Effexor birth defect cases, information gathered in the discovery phase might include pharmacy and medical records showing your prescription for Effexor and records documenting your child's injuries.

A significant number of lawsuits are settled out of court after the discovery process. If there is no settlement of your Effexor lawsuit, your case may go to trial.

Your Effexor birth defect lawsuit will be handled as an individual case but grouped together for discovery purposes with other individuals who have been harmed by the product. These groupings are known as mass torts. Your case is not part of a class action and our firm does not handle class action lawsuits. Each case is given individual attention and evaluated based on the merits of the case

We handle all cases on a contingency basis, meaning that if your case is not settled in your favor, or if you do not receive a verdict in your favor, we do not collect any fee.
