Recently ive seen the commercials on tv that Zofran was not approved and it can cause many birth defects. Well I never got to see if that would happen because i lost my baby. I went in to the doctors at just before 8 weeks pregnant, all was healthy with the baby and told them how sick i was every single day and they prescribed Zorfran to me and said i can take it multiple times a day when needed and I did I didnt take more than described but the next month I was at the doctors i had already got a refill. And at that dr appointment I was told i had lost my baby. I had to get surgery to remove the "tissue" and they didnt get it all the first time so i had to get it a SECOND time. I just want to know if i have a case over this because the commercials say "birth defects"
I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
The current science suggests an association between cleft palate, heart conditions like ASD and VSD, and kidney malformations. Lawsuits have been filed alleging that Zofran caused these defects among others.
My recommendation is to speak with a lawyer about your situation and whether you may have a case. You may have statute of limitations issues also that a lawyers will be able to help you assess.
Sorry to hear about your loss. I would certainly agree that you get a free consultation, but it is unlikely that you have a case because birth defect doesn't include end of pregnancy. Also, the standards for expert testimony that the drug caused the loss of your child and not anything else, is very high since a Supreme Court case involving drugs and birth defects.
But I would suggest you ask in case I am missing something and also for your own peace of mind that you have looked at every avenue.
All the best.
You can call one of the lawyers from the commercial who handle these cases to investigate your claim.
