Pursuing Compensation After Taking Zofran
The drug Zofran (ondansetron) was originally granted approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to help cancer patients deal with and control nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy and other treatments. Manufacturers such as GlaxoSmithKline also began marketing the drug as an off-label treatment for morning sickness in pregnant women, which has led to an untold numbers of birth defects.
At Tauzin & Lorio, Attorneys at Law, of Lafayette, Louisiana, we have worked with families left devastated from Glaxo’s careless, negligent marketing of this dangerous drug to expectant mothers. If you think you have a claim, reach out to us by calling 337-988-7588 or 866-585-9292 to schedule a free initial consultation.
Lawyers Who Know How To Hold Drug Manufacturers Accountable
Despite FDA warnings not to market the drug to pregnant women, Glaxo did so for years. It is alleged that the company has known about the potential links between Zofran and birth defects for more than 20 years. Glaxo has already paid the government billions in fines for illegally promoting drugs like Zofran.
Common birth defects that have been linked to Zofran usage and have sparked a flurry of lawsuits across the country include:
- Cleft lip and/or palate
- Hearing loss
- Skull deformities
- Heart defects
Our attorneys have spent their careers in personal litigation. Partner Yul Lorio previously defended class-action litigation before joining with Kevin Tauzin to protect the rights of individuals harmed by reckless prescription drug makers. Our attorneys know what the opposition will do before they do it, putting us in strong position to help you build an effective claim.
