Pursuing Justice For Victims Of Defective Drugs
Paxil was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1993 and was marketed as an effective treatment for depression and other psychological disorders. Soon after its release, Paxil was one of the most popular antidepressants on the market, with over 19 million users worldwide.
Unfortunately, advertisements failed to explain the complications associated with Paxil. Paxil alleviates depression symptoms by manipulating serotonin levels in the brain, which has been known to increase suicidal tendencies and behaviors. Pregnant women taking Paxil have given birth to babies suffering severe birth defects, including:
- Cranial birth defects
- Heart birth defects
- Persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN)
If you or a loved one has endured complications from Paxil, we will investigate thoroughly to uncover any acts of negligence. The pharmaceutical litigation attorneys at our firm work with industry-leading experts to help determine any liability factors, including false advertising, product defects and manufacturing defects.
Our aggressive approach often prompts insurance companies to make large settlement offers covering medical expenses, rehabilitation, lost wages and other expenses incurred from medical malpractice. If the settlement offer is too low, we will not hesitate to pursue a favorable trial verdict.
