Does Products Liability Law Protect SSRI Victims?
Federal and state laws protect consumers against a variety of risks and harms, including the possibility that the makers of a dangerous product might misstate the risks associated with that good. Importantly, in general the maker’s inaccurate statements need not be maliciously or carelessly made. The general rule for products liability is that even innocent misrepresentations about a product may subject a defendant to liability for harms caused by the product.
Sadly, thousands of families have experienced harm as a result of a group of medical product collectively known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Widely prescribed antidepressants, SSRIs have been shown to potentially cause serious harm to in utero children when the pregnant mother ingests the drug. Just like food and water transfer from mother to child, the ingredients in SSRIs transfer, too. In a tragic number of situations, this transfer has caused serious brain, lung, and physical injury.
