How to Know if You Have a Zofran Claim

How to Know if You Have a Zofran Claim

NewbornIf you were taking Zofran while pregnant and your child was born with some type of defect or a birth injury occurred, you may be able to take legal action.

Zofran is an anti-nausea drug made by manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline. It was marketed to pregnant women claiming to help combat the effects of morning sickness. The problem is, the drug was not FDA approved for use in this manner. It was initially approved to help combat nausea in cancer patients after treatments such as surgery and chemotherapy.

In recent years, lawsuits against GlaxoSmithKline have increased. Allegations against the drug manufacturer state that Zofran causes serious birth defects and injuries such as cleft palate. If you took Zofran and a birth defect occurred or you or your baby were injured in anyway, it is important to contact legal representation as soon as possible to determine available options for compensation. Understanding your claim can go a long way in helping you secure a victory.

You may have a claim if your baby was born with some kind of defect. It can help your claim if there was another issue previously in which a similar lawsuit was filed against the manufacturer. Recent lawsuits claim that the manufacturer knew of the risks involved with pregnant women taking Zofran yet they still marketed the drug for use in morning sickness anyway.

In 2012, GlaxoSmithKline paid out $3 billion, settling federal charges. The charges claimed that the manufacturer knowingly and illegally promoted Zofran and other drugs for uses other than their FDA-approved uses.
