Zoloft Birth Defect Lawyer Justinian Lane is currently reviewing potential Zoloft lawsuits on behalf of women who took the drug Zoloft (Sertraline) while pregnant and gave birth to a child with certain types of birth defects.
“Numerous studies from across the globe have shown that taking antidepressants such as Zoloft increase the risk of giving birth to a child with serious health problems,” said Lane. Lane was referring to a variety of studies that link the class of antidepressants known as Selective Serotonin-Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI) to an increased risk of birth defects. Those studies have linked the following types of birth defects to use of SSRI drugs such as Zoloft during pregnancy:
Prsistent Primary Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN)
Atrial Septal Defects (ASD)
Vntricular Septal Defects (VSD)
Pulmonary Valve Stenosis
Tricuspid Valve Stenosis
Transposition of the Great Arteries
Autism Spectrum Disorder
According to Mr. Lane, the list above is not a complete list of every type of birth defect that Zoloft could cause. “I’m interested in speaking to any woman who took Zoloft while pregnant and who gave birth to a baby who wasn’t perfectly healthy,” said Lane.
Many Zoloft lawsuits have already been filed on behalf of women who gave birth to babies with defects associated with the use of Zoloft. The Zoloft lawsuits have been centralized in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania before Judge Cynthia Rufe. Mr. Lane believes that “the centralization of all Zoloft lawsuits before Judge Rufe offers many advantages for the families of children born with Zoloft birth defects.” Chief among those advantages is the ability for defective drug lawyers like Mr. Lane to pool their resources against Pfizer, the manufacturer of the drug Zoloft.
