Zofran (Ondansetron) was first approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Association in 1991 as a drug designed to combat the effects of nausea in individuals undergoing chemotherapy or other surgical forms of cancer treatment.
Being on the market for over two decades, the drug has gained a reputation for being exceptionally effective. However, this effectiveness led manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline to widen the demographic that the drug could be marketed and sold to.
In an attempt to expand their market, GlaxoSmithKline began marketing Zofran to pregnant women suffering from morning sickness. With this being an unapproved use of the drug, consumers were unaware of the potential risks they were exposing themselves and their developing babies to while taking it.
In response to the drug being marketed for non-approved uses, several medical research teams began conducting studies to determine what effects Zofran use could have on pregnant women and their babies.
As results of these investigations were released, it became clear to many that Zofran use during pregancy often carried a correlative relationship with birth defects. Some studies reported risk rates as high as 200% the normal rate when comparing Zofran users to non-Zofran users.
Of the reported birth defects associated with Zofran use during pregnancy, the following were the most widely occurring:
|Muskuloskeletal Problems||Intrauterine Growth Restriction|
|Kidney Defects||Mouth Deformities|
How Can A Lawyer Help Win Zofran Birth Defect Lawsuits?
Choosing the right representation for a dangerous drug lawsuit against a major pharmaceutical company is the most important factor in determining whether you will be able to secure a future financial settlement.
A qualified, experienced, and skilled attorney has grown in importance over the last three decades as pharmaceutical companies have experience unparalleled growth. This growth, fueled by rapidly developing drugs and bringing them to market, has made pharmaceutical companies rich in resources that can be used to combat lawsuits brought against them.
With drugs being rapidly developed, thousands of consumers each year are exposed to side effects that were not disclosed to them due to neglect to inform or neglect to adequately test. Those who suffer from these side effects often file lawsuits against the company responsible.
In dealing with thousands of these lawsuits each year, pharmaceutical companies now employ high-powered law firms who are experienced in defeating a large number of cases simultaneously. The combination of these law firms’ skill and the resources of pharmaceutical companies means that a victim needs to be supported by an equally powerful legal network to effectively pursue their dangerous drug lawsuit.
In addition to being able to call upon a vast legal network with the resources needed to combat GlaxoSmithKline, your attorney should be well verse in the medical and state requirements for successfully filing a Zofran dangerous drug lawsuit.
Oftentimes, an attorney who is unaware of the necessary state deadlines will be unable to properly advise their client, leading to a lawsuit being declared ineligible for settlement acquisition.
An attorney who is qualified to serve as your representation should be able to execute the following tasks on your behalf:
- Pay all case costs and litigation expenses
- Retrieve your medical and pharmacy records
- Retrieve your medical bills
- Submit all required claim forms
- Make recommendations on your best legal option (class action, individual suit)
- File the lawsuit for you
- Keep you regularly updated on your case
- Secure the best possible settlement
In addition to the aforementioned tasks, an attorney should also be able to offer their consultation and insight into various situations to help you determine what is the best course of action.
