Wednesday, February 25, 2015 - The Onder Law Firm, respected nationwide for its superior work in family safety and product liability law, launches the Zofran Birth Defects Lawsuit Center. The website provides comprehensive information for persons seeking to file Zofran lawsuits alleging birth defects.
A Zofran lawsuit was just filed by Tomish LeClair against GlaxoSmithKline in United States District Court in Massachusetts, alleging her child was born with birth defects as a result of prenatal exposure to Zofran.*
According to court documents, the "Plaintiff‘s minor child, A.S., was born in 2000 with numerous congenital defects after her mother, Plaintiff Tomisha LeClair, was prescribed and began taking Zofran beginning early in her first trimester of pregnancy to alleviate the symptoms of morning sickness. After birth, echocardiograms evidenced that A.S. suffered from an atrial septal defect, right ventricular hypertension and aortic arch hypoplasia. A.S. has also subsequently been diagnosed with facial dysmorphia, low set ears, hearing loss, sensitivity to light, ingueno hernia, and webbed toes."
Zofran has never been approved by the FDA for use in pregnant women, according to court documents. Furthermore, the case alleges that GlaxoSmithKline has never engaged in clinical research to determine whether the drug is safe for pregnant women or their developing fetuses, according to court documents.
In 2012, Zofran‘s marketer, GlaxoSmithKline, entered civil settlements with the U.S. Department of Justice for the illegal marketing of pharmaceutical drugs, including the marketing of Zofran for use in pregnant women, according to court documents. The company paid $1 billion in civil settlements, according to court documents.
