Birth Defect Litigation

PRACTICE AREA

Birth Defect Litigation

As patients, we trust the medications prescribed by our physicians will help us. Unfortunately, pharmaceutical companies frequently violate this trust by manufacturing drugs that have not been adequately tested, don’t include proper warnings and labels, and cause serious side effects. While all patients are susceptible to the risks of dangerous drugs, pregnant women are particularly vulnerable because some drugs can permanently harm their unborn babies.

From anti-depressants to anti-seizure medications, many drugs can prove harmful to pregnant women and their babies. Unborn children are susceptible to harm in utero as they develop, and dangerous medications could cause lifelong difficulties or disorders. If a child has suffered birth defects as a result of a medication taken by the mother during pregnancy, there may be grounds for compensation.

Current Birth Defects Litigation

The birth defects lawyers at Blizzard Law PLLC are diligently working on birth defects litigation involving the following medications:

Celexa

This anti-depressant and SSRI has been linked to serious birth defects, such as shortened or absent limbs, malformed lips or mouth, and heart defects.

Lexapro

This anti-depressant drug was aggressively marketed, to the point that the Justice Department charged the company for pushing the drug toward teenagers and children, for whom the drug was not approved. Lexapro carries the potential for serious side effects, including birth defects.

Zofran

This anti-nausea medication is often prescribed to pregnant women, but it creates an increased risk of heart defects, cleft lip, and cleft palate developing in babies in utero.
