Parents have been shocked in recent years to learn that popular antidepressant drugs they may have been prescribed during pregnancy have been linked to serious birth defects. Fortunately, legal help is available from some of the top attorneys in the country.
While it can never correct the injury to a child, a Paxil lawsuit can recover a substantial amount to help with critical treatment and attention a child needs as they grow older with a birth defect.
Beginning in 2005, researchers released several studies linking Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant drugs like Paxil to heart defects, club foot, lung defects, abdominal defects, and neural tube defects of the brain and spine.
Many of these are serious birth defects that can result in early infant death, or at the very least can cause lasting physical and emotional complications for a child and financial trauma on a family.
Attorneys are currently filing claims on behalf of those children and families injured by these drugs. Recent reports indicate the maker of Paxil, GlaxoSmithKline, has paid nearly $1 billion to resolve lawsuits for side effects, or approximately $1.2 million for each Paxil lawsuit related to birth defects.
If you suspect your child’s birth defect may be related to taking Paxil during pregnancy, contact us today to learn your legal options for a Paxil lawsuit. Attorneys are available to help, however, the time to file is limited.
Companies that sell dangerous or defective products without warning are responsible for the damages caused to consumers. A defective drug is no different. A qualified attorney can explain how GlaxoSmithKline, the maker of Paxil, may have known of the dangers to infants for years, but continued to earn billions selling the drug regardless.
Paxil is one of the most popular antidepressant drugs in the world. It is estimated that nearly 100 million people have taken the drug since it was released in 1992. GlaxoSmithKline is one of the three largest and most profitable drug companies in the world.
You and your family should not face the medical expenses, pain, suffering and lost time and earnings caused by dealing with a child’s serious birth defect alone simply because of the carelessness of a large drug company.
It costs you nothing to speak with an attorney or file a Paxil lawsuit, and you can recover even if your child’s condition has been corrected. The benefits can help them for the rest of their life, however, you are the only one who can take action on their behalf.
It is important to speak with a qualified attorney to determine how much your child’s case may be worth, how long you have to take action before their rights expire, and how soon you may be able to receive funds to help with their care.
Attorneys with the Paxil Litigation Group have filed thousands of lawsuits for defective drugs and recovered verdicts and settlements in excess of $1 million for families affected by the birth defects caused by SSRI drugs like Paxil.
