Was a child in your family born with birth defects after the mother took the antidepressant Lexapro within a year before giving birth? If so, you may be entitled to payments for your financial losses through a Lexapro lawsuit. Our law firm can file such a Lexapro birth defect lawsuit for you and other innocent Americans with the expertise of a professional Lexapro lawyer.
Lexapro is a type of drug called a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor, or an SSRI. These drugs have been found in studies and research to increase the risk that a child whose mother takes the drug
will suffer horrible birth defects. These findings are the basis of many Lexapro lawsuits.
Though Lexapro may lower depression and anxiety, it also can exact an enormous lifelong cost to a child who’s born with birth defects due to the drug. These negative side effects have created a real increase in Lexapro lawsuits in recent years.
Dangerous Lexapro Side Effects
Lexapro is known to cause a wide array of dangerous side effects. These birth defects may include but are not limited to:
- Ventricular septal defects
- PPHN (persistent pulmonary hypertension)
- Congenital heart defects
- Atrial septal defects
- Brain defects
- Heart defects
- Spine defects
- Lung defects
Bringing a Lexapro Lawsuit
Lexapro side effects can be costly for a family, including their medical and hospital bills. This is especially true when an infant needs surgery or a series of surgeries. An experienced Lexapro attorney understands how quickly the costs can accumulate.
A Lexapro lawsuit can claim payments for these expenses by holding accountable the negligent manufacturer and seller of the responsible drug. That company is Forest Laboratories, based in New York City. It is the same Forest Laboratories charged with fraud by the U.S. Justice Department for selling antidepressants Lexapro as well as Celexa for use by children despite this being an unapproved usage. This is just one reason why an experienced Lexapro attorney could be your best option for filing a personal injury lawsuit.
Forest Laboratories has sold up to $2.8 billion worth of Lexapro in a single year. Meanwhile, innocent Americans have suffered, most notably babies, so a giant corporation could make another buck. The families of these infants have the right to file a Lexapro lawsuit to help with their mounting financial costs.
