A drug called Zofran that is used to treat nausea and vomiting has been linked to an increased risk for potentially fatal birth defects. At James F. Humphreys & Associates, L.C., we know expecting mothers have enough to worry about without worrying that medication prescribed by their doctor might cause birth defects for their unborn child, which is why our firm is investigating Zofran cases.
Zofran is a medication for nausea and vomiting that was first approved to treat chemotherapy side effects, but it is prescribed off label to pregnant women with severe morning sickness. However, studies have found that this medication is linked to severe birth effects, especially cardiovascular defects. These birth defects are linked to consumption of the drug during the first trimester, which is typically when women experience morning sickness and might take the morning sickness medication.
If you or someone you care about has used Zofran for morning sickness and gave birth to a child with cardiovascular birth defects, James F. Humphreys & Associates, L.C. may be able to help you get the compensation you deserve. Contact our firm for a free consultation.
