Is a Lexapro Suit Right for Your Family?

August 2, 2012

Tragically, for thousands of American women, Lexapro (escitalopram) isn’t just a solution for their depression, but a reason for very deep sadness. Despite medical research underscoring its risk to children, every year the manufacturer of Lexapro continues to market this dangerous drug. And every year, even more families experience infant birth defects as a result.


Past medical findings have demonstrated that a causal link may exist between women who take Lexapro while pregnant and infant birth defects resulting from in utero exposure. Consequential birth defects range in severity, but they include heart, lung, and developmental conditions like septal defects, persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN), and cleft palate. These are serious and often require surgery.


The attorneys at Fears Nachawati recognize that the injuries resulting from prenatal Lexapro exposure often give rise to products-based legal actions. In many cases, the rights of victims and their families are seriously affected and provide the basis for viable damages claims. Is a Lexapro lawsuit right for you?
