ZOLOFT is an antidepressant prescription medication that belongs to the SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) class. Introduced in 1991, Zoloft has since been prescribed to over 30 million people, and is one of the most highly prescribed antidepressants in the U.S. Zoloft was once thought to be safe to take during pregnancy, however, it has become known that this drug can cause serious and permanent birth defects.
If you took Zoloft while you were pregnant and your child was born with a serious birth defect such as a heart defect, a cranial defect, spina bifida, cleft lip/palate, club foot, brain damage or paralysis, we can help you.
When faced with the news that your child has a birth defect you probably will feel devastated. However, finding out that the reason for the birth defect could be the result of a dangerous drug and the neglect of the company manufacturing it can make a bad situation even worse. Pfizer Incorporated, the makers of Zoloft, have a legal responsibility to warn patients of the risks involved in taking Zoloft while pregnant which they did not do.
We believe that Pfizer Incorporated should be held accountable for any harm that they have caused, and that the people who have suffered injuries from taking Zoloft should be treated fairly and compensated for their losses.
We represent all clients suffering as a result of the devastating birth defects attributable to Zoloft on a contingency basis which means that there are never any legal fees unless we win compensation in your case.
