St. Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) February 20, 2013
Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC filed a product liability civil suit on behalf of a mother who took Zoloft ® while she was pregnant and is seeking compensation because the child suffered birth defects that may have been caused by the medication. (12JE-CC01197 - PAMELA CLARK ET AL V PFIZER ET AL Jeff CO.) The medication is an antidepressant drug used to treat major depressive disorder (MDD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), social anxiety, premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and panic disorder. Although Zoloft® can be used as an effective antidepressant; Meyerkord & Meyerkord hopes to demonstrate that it is associated with serious side effects as well.
According to Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC, the lawsuit alleges four counts. Count I alleges strict liability design defect; count II alleges strict liability failure to warn; count III alleges negligence; and count IV alleges fraudulent misrepresentation and concealment. The firm is seeking compensation for damages, attorney’s fees, punitive damages, pre-judgment interest and post-judgment interest. Through the claim, Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC hopes to collect compensation for the mother on the basis that her child’s birth defects were the result of negligence.
