Texas Paxil Birth Defect Attorneys
The antidepressant Paxil was marketed as a safe, effective way to treat depression and anxiety. Tragically, many women who took Paxil during pregnancy delivered children with serious birth defects. GlaxoSmithKline, the producer of Paxil, was aware of the link between birth defects and Paxil for a number of years. In spite of this knowledge, GlaxoSmithKline did nothing to warn the public of these risks.
One of the most common birth defects associated with the use of Paxil during pregnancy are holes in the heart, known in medical terms as atrial septal defects (ASD) or ventral septal defects (VSD). Other known birth defects include persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPN). This condition often leads to respiratory failure and death shortly after the child’s birth. In other cases, Paxil has been shown to cause abdominal and cranial birth defects.
Yet again, corporate greed needlessly put our most vulnerable members of society in harm’s way. If you took Paxil during your pregnancy and your child has suffered birth defects, the Beaumont law firm of Reaud, Morgan & Quinn will represent your child.
Our Lawyers Will Fight for Your Child
Our lawyers are fully prepared to take on your cause and help your child get the compensation he or she deserves. Serious birth defects typically lead to development delays for a child. As a result, your money damages must be able to cover the costs of your child’s long-term care needs. We will work with experts to calculate these costs. When it is necessary, we will be prepared to go before a jury to demonstrate exactly how Paxil harmed your child, and why GlaxoSmithKline must be held responsible.
