The Florida injury lawyers at Gordon and Doner are seeking women who used Zoloft during their pregnancy and delivered a child with a birth defect. There are pending lawsuits that are alleging that Zoloft causes birth defects and that the drug’s manufacturer, Pfizer, withheld information from doctors and patients about this risk. If you or a loved one used Zoloft while pregnant and delivered a baby with a serious birth defect, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit to seek compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering and other damages.

Zoloft is a prescription antidepressant that is used to treat depression and mood disorders. Zoloft and its generic sertaline, belong to a class of drugs called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Zoloft and other SSRIs work by helping to restore the balance of serotonin, a natural substance in the brain.
There have been several medical studies that show a link between Zoloft use and birth defects. These studies suggest that women who use Zoloft during pregnancy have a 60 percent higher chance of delivering a child with a birth defect. The Food and Drug Administration warned the public in 2005 that there is a strong correlation between SSRI use during pregnancy and birth defects. Some common Zoloft birth defects include spina bifida, limb deformity, atrial septal defects, heart defects and persistent pulmonary hypertension.
The Zoloft lawyers at Gordon & Doner believe that Pfizer failed to adequately warn doctors and patients about Zoloft’s birth defects risk. If you or a loved one gave birth to a child with a birth defect after using Zoloft during pregnancy, you may be eligible to file a Zoloft lawsuit.
