Answers to Common Questions about Zoloft Lawsuits
Can the Companies that Make Zoloft be Held Liable for Harmful Side Effects?
Yes. There is a significant precedent for holding companies that manufacture harmful pharmaceuticals liable for the damage their products cause. If you have been harmed by Zoloft or its generic form sertraline, you have the right to seek compensation for your injuries.
Do I Have Grounds for a Zoloft Lawsuit?
If you took Zoloft while pregnant and if you have a child that was born with a birth defect such as abnormal muscle tone, omphalocele, craniosynostosis, abnormal intestinal development, limb reduction defects, a heart defect, cleft palate or defects of the mouth or septum, or if your child was born with persistent pulmonary hypertension you may have grounds for a Zoloft lawsuit.
How Do I File a Zoloft Lawsuit?
The first step to filing a Zoloft lawsuit is to contact us. After you’ve contacted us with a request to file a Zoloft lawsuit, we will send a packet to you that includes a questionnaire, a letter of medical authorization, a letter of representation, and a contingency fee agreement. Contingency fee means that you will only have to pay us if your Zoloft case reaches a settlement or a verdict in your favor.
Throughout the entire process, our attorneys and staff will work with you to make sure you are kept informed of every development in your Zoloft lawsuit and that all of your questions are answered.
What Will Happen When I File a Zoloft Lawsuit?
When you file a Zoloft lawsuit, a process of gathering information and evidence about your case begins. This process is known as “discovery.” During discovery, either party may obtain any information that relates to any issue in the lawsuit that is not privileged or protected. This process may involve written answers to questions that are called interrogatories, or statements taken under oath known as depositions.
In Zoloft cases, evidence subject to discovery might include pharmacy or medical records that prove you were prescribed Zoloft and your child's medical records.
A significant number of Zoloft lawsuits are settled out of court after the discovery process. If there is no settlement in your Zoloft lawsuit, your case may go to trial.
Your Zoloft 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.
Many Zoloft lawsuits are currently being handled in an single mass tort in The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. In July of 2012, Ed Blizzard, a senior partner at Blizzard & Nabers, was named to the plaintiff's steering committee for this litigation.
