Prozac Birth Defect Lawsuits
Prozac has been linked to a number of severe birth defects, including Omphalocele, a birth defect in which a child is born with the intestines, liver, and occasionally other organs outside of the abdomen because of a defect in the development of the abdominal wall muscles. Prozac has also been associated with heart defects, including septal defects. Prozac and other SSRIs have also been linked to obstruction defects that can severely interfere with heart function.

What happens if I decide to file a Prozac Birth Defect lawsuit?
If you decide to file a lawsuit seeking compensation for your damages from Prozac, our firm will work with you to assess your case and help you decide the best way to move forward. We will 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 Prozac birth defect cases, information gathered in the discovery phase might include medical records showing your prescription for Prozac and records documenting the harm your child suffered.
A significant number of lawsuits are settled out of court after the discovery process. If your Prozac lawsuit does not settle at that point in time, your case may go to trial.
Your Prozac birth defect lawsuit may be handled either as an individual case or in a single case with other individuals who have also been harmed by the product. These group cases are known as mass torts. Even if your case is handled as a mass tort, our attorneys and staff will work with you personally and give your case individual attention.
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.
