Southfield, MI (PRWEB) July 09, 2013
The dangerous drug legal team at the personal injury law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. is now actively accepting Paxil lawsuits and all other SSRI antidepressants cases that involve women that took an SSRI during their pregnancy resulting in their child being born with an alleged birth defect.
Paxil, also known as serotonin re-uptake inhibitors, or SSRI’s, is a drug that is prescribed to treat individuals with depression. However, even though Paxil is known to be an effective drug in treating this medical condition, the drug has also been allegedly linked to birth defects. In fact, in 2005 the FDA issued a warning that patients who took Paxil were at an increased risk of delivering a child with birth defects, especially heart defects, with the highest risk group being women taking Paxil during the first trimester of pregnancy. See here for the FDA report released on December 8, 2005: http://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/2005/ucm108527.htm
Patients who allegedly delivered a child suffering from birth defects after taking the SSRI drug do have legal rights and may have a possible Paxil lawsuit against the drug manufacturer, GlaxoSmithKline. These cases seek fair compensation to patients and their newborn who have been allegedly harmed by the medication that was prescribed to them by their physicians.
Other alleged side effects that are associated with Paxil include pulmonary hypertension (PPHN), premature births, abdominal defects, brain injury, and lack of oxygen in the baby’s blood. A baby who suffers any of these alleged side effects due to their mother taking Paxil during pregnancy does have legal rights and may also be able to file a dangerous drug claim against the manufacturer.
“There are strict statutes of limitations for filing a Michigan Paxil lawsuit. If you miss a deadline your case will be lost forever. It is important when choosing your lawyer for your Paxil claim that you choose an attorney that has significant experience in dangerous drug cases and representing patients injured or harmed by a prescription medication. At the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. our Michigan Paxil lawyers work directly with other national law firms to win the best settlement for our clients,” says Partner and Attorney Lawrence J. Buckfire.
Patients taking Paxil and their physicians should be fully aware of the alleged potential association between the SSRI and birth defects, as well as other alleged side effects of the drug.
