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.
