Billions for Marketing, But How Much for Damages?

September 14, 2012

In the last twenty years, major drug manufacturers like Lilly and Pfizer have spent billions of dollars marketing a group of antidepressants, known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), which studies have subsequently shown increase the risk that a pregnant patient will give birth to a child suffering from a birth defect. Sadly, the birth defects associated with prenatal Zoloft (sertraline) exposure are many and may include gastroschisis, spina bifida, tetralogy of fallout, and PPHN.


For families who experience the consequences of this elevated risk, an important question arises: to what extent should the manufacturer and marketer of this potentially hazardous product bear legal responsibility for the harm that subsequently befalls a patient?
