Monday, June 22, 2015 - Attorneys handling national Zofran lawsuits announce a Zofran lawsuit news update now available at their website, the Zofran Birth Defects Lawsuit Center. The new article concerns a Zofran lawsuit that was filed in Ohio by parents of a child who died just three days after her birth, according to court documents. *The child died as a result of birth defects, which the lawsuit allege were caused by prenatal exposure to Zofran, according to court documents.
The child in question was exposed to Zofran when her mother was prescribed the drug to treat morning sickness by her doctor, according to court documents. The complaint alleges the Zofran was presented as a safe medication for the treatment of nausea during pregnancy by the drug company, GlaxoSmithKline. Mirroring other Zofran lawsuits, this claim alleges that GSK illegally promoted Zofran to pregnant women, which is considered an off-label use do to the fact that Zofran has not been approved for use in pregnant women by the FDA, according to court documents.
The child in question was born on March 17, 2006 and immediately diagnosed with a right ventrical heart defect, according to the court documents. She was cared for in the ICU until she died on March 20, 2006 at the age of three days old, according to court documents.
The Zofran lawsuit alleges that GSK knew or should have known of risks to pregnant mothers and fetuses posed by Zofran use during pregnancy, yet failed to adequately warn consumers. Furthermore, the plaintiffs allege GSK knowingly promoted the drug for a variety of off-label conditions, the subject of a 2012 settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice for $3 billion, according to court documents.
Furthermore, this Zofran lawsuit alleges that GSK has concealed information regarding the risks associated with Zofran and the injuries it has caused, according to court documents. The plaintiffs, who are the child‘s parents, allege that Zofran and GSK are responsible for the wrongful death of their child, according to court documents.
