Zofran is a pharmaceutical drug used to prevent nausea in patients treating for cancer or patients who have recently had surgery. Zofran works by blocking chemicals in your body that can trigger vomiting.
Drug maker GlaxoSmithKline illegally promoted Zofran as a safe anti-nausea medicine for pregnant women suffering from morning sickness. The FDA never approved Zofran as a safe drug to take during pregnancy.
Because of GlaxoSmithKline’s misrepresentation of Zofran, babies were born with severe birth defects such as cleft lip/palate, club foot and skull deformities.
As of 2012, after criminal and civil claims were filed against the pharmaceutical company, the company agreed to settle for $3 billion; the largest health care fraud settlement in US history from a drug company. Pregnant women who took Zofran and who delivered children with birth defects were not compensated through the company’s settlement with the government.
Lawsuits against GlaxoSmithKline are begin considered and may compensate victims with reimbursement for medical costs and pain and suffering.
By filing a lawsuit with the help of the Coppola Law Group, you may be able to hold the manufacturer of the Zofran drug accountable for your current and future condition(s). If you took Zofran while pregnant and your child was born with birth defects, you may be entitled to compensation, including medical bills and pain and suffering.
