Our Zofran lawyers are here to help. Zofran is an anti-nausea drug produced by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). Zofran has been prescribed to pregnant women who suffer from morning sickness (hyperemesis gravidarum). Zofran has also been shown to increase congenital birth defects such as cleft palate, club feet or hands, and atrial septal defect, which is a newborn child heart defect. If you baby suffered a birth defect or personal injury that you believe was caused by Zofran (Ondansetron) or another defective drug, call the Pennsylvania Zofran attorneys at the the Trapani Law Firm for a free consultation so that we can discuss a possible Zofran lawsuit settlement.
A pregnant mother often experiences morning sickness symptoms such as vomiting, nausea and dehydration. Zofran is a 5-HT3 antagonist that blocks serotonin and stimulates gastric emptying. The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) never approved Zofran for hyperemesis gravidarum or morning sickness. But GlaxoSmithKline directly marketed Zofran to ob-gyns as treatment to pregnant women with morning sickness. Our Zolfran attorneys are aware of a 2011 study which showed Zofran use doubled the risk of cleft palate and atrial septal defect. Furthermore, in the year 2000 GlaxoSmithKline received over 30 reports regarding birth defects in newborn babies of mothers prescribed Zofran. If your newborn child suffered a birth injury as a result of Zofran use, our Zofran lawsuit lawyers will help you receive financial compensation through Zofran settlements or a Zofran lawsuit.
Zofran manufacturers GlaxoSmithKline failed to warn pregnant mothers of the very serious risks, thus committing a marketing defect in the Zofran warnings. Additionally, GlaxoSmithKline failed to give appropriate instructions and did not give accurate warnings when they knew or should have known that their product is unreasonably dangerous. Therefore, GlaxoSmithKline should be held liable for a failure to warn pregnant mothers of the associated risks of child birth personal injury. Moreover, in 2012 GSK was fined $3 billion by the U.S. government for illegally promoting Zofran for unapproved purposes and our Zofran attorneys will help you get the compensation you deserve.
Zofran Lawsuits for Atrial Septal Defects
Atrial Septal Defect is an underdeveloped heart in a newborn child. These ASD birth defects are classified as any type of deformity where there is a hole between the two upper valves of the heart, known as the atrium. This birth defect often leads to the inability of the heart to supply an adequate amount of oxygen to the rest of the body. The following is a list of Atrial Septal Defect Syptoms:
Pale or Blue Skin
Failure to Thrive or Grow
Zofran Lawsuits for Club Feet and Hands
Club foot or hands is the result of deformities in the bones and muscles of the foot or ankle which cause the affected limb to curl toward the body. In addition, the foot or hand may also be smaller than the other. This will make learning to walk and run very difficult. Doctors and medical professionals can typically tell very early if a newborn child is born with a Club Foot Defect. Sadly, Zofran use during the first trimester of pregnancy has been shown to increase the risk of newborn club foot birth defects.

Zofran Lawsuits for Cleft Palate
Zofran use has been shown to increase the risk of Cleft Palate in newborn children. The term Cleft Palate means “split in the roof of the mouth.” The cleft connects the mouth to the nasal cavity. Cleft palate occurs during the first trimester around the tenth week of pregnancy. This birth defect leads to feeding problems in newborns because air escapes through the cleft making it difficult to suck on a breast or nipple. Additionally, a newborn can have Dysphagia (problems swallowing), speech impediment, ear infection and hearing problems. If your child has been diagnosed with Cleft Palate call a Pennsylvania Zofran lawsuit attorney for a free consultation. We’ll help get your newborn the treatment and compensation they deserve for their birth injury.
