Was your child born with birth defects?
Maybe you took Zofran. Or maybe you aren’t sure if you did.
Why is this important?
Because Zofran has been linked to birth defects when mothers take it in the first trimester of their pregnancy.
What was Zofran Designed For?
GlaxoSmithKline – the manufacturer of Zofran – designed the drug to treat nausea associated with chemotherapy and post-surgery care. That’s what it was tested for. That’s what the FDA approved it for.
Why are pregnant women using it?
That’s a great question.
Even though the FDA never approved it for this use, GlaxoSmithKline began marketing Zofran to treat nausea associated with pregnancy – known as “morning sickness.”
The problem is – besides the FDA not approving this use – is that studies show Zofran can pass through the placenta and HARM THE BABY.
When should you contact an attorney?
If your child was born with one of the following birth defects …
- hole in the heart
- heart murmur
- cleft lip
- cleft palate
- one kidney
.. and you took Zofran OR you aren’t sure if you took Zofran, then you should contact our office immediately.
Why should you contact an attorney?
First off, if you aren’t sure whether or not you took Zofran, an attorney can look into that for you and find out.
And if Zofran is to blame for your child’s birth defects, don’t you want justice? Don’t you want to hold GlaxoSmithKline accountable for what it did to your child? Don’t you want to provide a better future for your child?
You can do ALL of this through a lawsuit.
Any compensation you receive from a Zofran lawsuit would go into a trust fund for your child. It’s money your child could use to pay for college. It’s money your child could use to live a better life.
This may be a dark and sad chapter of life that you and your family have closed the book on. But I urge you to do this for your child.
Your child has no voice. He can’t walk into my office and tell me what happened. She can’t take care of this on her own – or at all. YOU – the parent – need to be your child’s voice. This is about your child — not you.
