Every year, hundreds of new drugs are made available to the public. Most are found to be very useful in easing the discomfort of those suffering from various medical conditions. Some, however, turn out to be dangerous. New drugs are typically subjected to extensive testing before they are released for sale. One of the most difficult things to test a new drug for is effects on developing fetuses, however. The unfortunate consequence is that some products cause birth defects in children of mothers who took those drugs while pregnant.
When the health of a newborn child is not what it should be, and the suspected cause is a medication, the parents might consider bringing a birth defect lawsuit against the manufacturer of the drug in question. To have the best chance of success, the aggrieved should hire a birth defect lawyer. The Rottenstein Law Group’s birth defect lawyers can commence birth defect lawsuits for their clients. For instance, RLG represents clients who have taken Celexa, Effexor, Lexapro, Paxil, and Pristiq, — all of which have been alleged to increase the risk of birth defects.
Each of these medications, if prescribed by a doctor, was supposed to ease depression—not expose your baby to greater risk. The manufacturer might be at fault. In any event, you’re not to blame. And you shouldn’t have to go through more trouble to be compensated for the harm you’ve already suffered. The Rottenstein Law Group knows this, and we want you to believe it. Because a drug manufacturer might have put its own profits before your well-being, now you need a sympathetic advocate who will represent only your interests—and who will make the process as painless as possible.
