Product Liability at Heart of Paxil Birth Defects Claim

May 5, 2012

Unfortunately, although many families are victims of the dangerous side effects of Paxil (paroxetine), few understand that they may have a valid legal claim as a result. Specifically, for most Paxil victims, the claim they have is as a product liability action.


Paxil (paroxetine), a widely prescribed antidepressant, has been shown to increase the probability of prenatal birth defects when ingested by pregnant women. Tragically, although medical researchers and drug manufacturers knew of this risk, it wasn’t until the FDA adopted regulatory changes in recent years that Paxil producers began effectively warning customers. By that point, of course, many children had already been born with Paxil-induced injuries, such as heart, lung, abdominal, and cranial birth defects.


Families that are going through the painful, trying, and expensive process of helping their infant adjust to life with a Paxil birth defect often need help. In many situations, the attorneys and professionals at Fears Nachawati are precisely the kind of experienced and expert advisors who can give these victims the direction they need.
