Was your baby born with birth defects?
Hello this is Darrell Castle. I’m a personal injury attorney licensed to practice law in the state of Tennessee and on this video today I want to talk to you about Zofran and how it may be associated with the birth defect that your child suffered from.
And what do I mean by that?
Well we know that Zofran, which is a drug often prescribed to women with morning sickness – nausea and vomiting – has been associated with birth defects in children if the mother took it during the first trimester of her pregnancy. Birth defects such as heart defects – a hole in the heart or a heart murmur – and other things like that. OR cleft palate, cleft lip. Some babies born with only one kidney. All of those things have been associated with Zofran.
Well, you don’t know whether you took Zofran or not. Often times that’s the case. Perhaps you do remember being sick during your pregnancy, calling your doctor saying you’re sick. And then the doctor said he’ll call something in for you – or the doctor’s nurse told you she’ll call something in for you – and you don’t even know what it was.
But it could be something where the doctor didn’t even tell you she was giving it to you. The doctor or his nurse just said “here’s some prenatal vitamins you should take and here’s something that will keep your from getting sick from morning sickness” and you don’t even remember.
But you owe it to yourself to check. You owe it to your child to check if you have a child born with a birth defect like what I’ve talked about. You owe it to your child to check to see if it was Zofran. Because the company that made this drug shouldn’t be allowed to get away with that.
You see, this is not about the doctor. This is about the company that manufactured this drug. And they should pay for what they did if in fact it caused your baby’s birth defect.
