Thursday, April 9, 2015 - The Zofran lawsuit website of attorneys handling claims nationwide has a new Zofran lawsuit case profile available. The case* was filed in U.S. District Court in Northern Alabama by a mother who alleges her son developed significant birth defects as a result of her having taken the anti-nausea medication during her pregnancy. These Zofran attorneys provide case profiles and Zofran lawsuit information as a public resource, in addition to regular new updates.
The plaintiff, Julie Hunter, took Zofran during January of 2006, when she was pregnant, according to court documents. Hunter‘s son, Talon, was born in August of the same year; in the days and months following his birth, doctors discovered myriad birth defects, including a narrow pallet, extra fingers, a seizure disorder, a distended kidney, a chromosomal defect, developmental delays including the inability to speak, and glaucoma, according to court documents. The suit alleges that these birth defects are not congenital, based on testing of the child‘s parents, but are linked to his exposure to Zofran in utero, according to court documents.
This Zofran lawsuit asserts that GlaxoSmithKline, the international pharmaceutical company responsible for manufacturing and marketing the drug, knew or should have known of the risks it posed to pregnant women and their babies, and should have warned the public of such risks, according to court documents.
