Were you taking the antidepressant Zoloft during pregnancy?
The popular medication Zoloft has been linked to a range of serious birth defects in infants whose mothers were taking the drug while pregnant. The drug has been widely prescribed for treatment of depression and other disorders, but many mothers have learned too late of the serious risks to a developing fetus.
If your baby was born with pulmonary hypertension, heart problems, cranial defects or other birth injuries, you may be entitled to compensation. Many parents have initiated individual lawsuits against the manufacturer, pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, and there may be class actions in the future.
Zoloft Birth Defects Lawsuit
If you suspect that the antidepressant Zoloft prescribed during pregnancy resulted in serious harm to your baby, Greg Jones Law wants to help. We have the means and the experience to represent clients throughout the United States in pharmaceutical litigation. Contact us today.
Zoloft is among the most widely prescribed antidepressants in a class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). In addition to treating depression, Zoloft is commonly used to treat panic attacks, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) and other mental health disorders.
Zoloft and several other SSRIs have been linked to a significant increase in the incidence of serious birth defects:
- Persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN)
- Heart defects
- Abdominal birth defects
- Cranial birth defects
In some cases, the defects can be repaired or mitigated. For many children, these congenital defects are life-threatening or result in permanent disability, disfigurement and developmental problems. We seek compensation for your medical costs, special care or services for your child, the child’s hardships and lost opportunities, and your suffering and burdens as parents of a special needs child.
We hold pharmaceutical companies accountable
Greg Jones Law has sued many major drug manufacturers for failing to warn of the dangers of their drugs. The dangers of taking Zoloft during pregnancy were known for years, and Pfizer failed to issue stronger warnings even after the FDA raised cautions.
We can arrange to have your child and your case reviewed by medical experts, and we will vigorously pursue full damages if your case has merit. We encourage you to contact us as soon as possible to preserve your rights.
At Greg Jones Law we represent people throughout the United States in holding drug companies accountable for dangerous medications.
