Families whose newborn babies suffer birth defects may be due payments if the child’s mother took a defective antidepressant while pregnant. Paxil is among defective drugs that can cause horrible harm to innocent babies. Americans can fight back with a Paxil lawsuit.
Such a defective drug lawsuit from our law firm won’t cost victims anything out of their own pockets. That’s because we work on a contingency fee basis
, which means we aren’t paid unless we win a case, and even then, we’re paid only from the settlement amount.

If your child suffered one of these birth defects
after the mother used antidepressant Paxil while pregnant, notify our law firm for a free case review. You may be entitled to substantial economic recovery via a Paxil lawsuit.
Paxil antidepressants are among drugs prescribed to many of the 10 per cent of American women who suffer from depression during pregnancy. Yet while such drugs may ease depression or anxiety, they also can raise the risk of dangerous birth defects.
You might have learned via a Paxil TV commercial or Paxil TV ad about such risks, which include especially damaging heart defects. Yet any serious birth defect of the heart, brain, lungs or spine can lead to skyrocketing medical bills — a burden which an innocent family should not be expected to bear when the birth defect injury was the fault of a bad drug.
Instead, such costs should be covered by the maker and seller of Paxil. That is GlaxoSmithKline, or GSK, a British company and the third largest pharmaceutical company in the world.
Despite the horrible harm Paxil can cause, GSK has issued no Paxil recall. Instead, it keeps collecting profits while innocent babies suffer.
But American families can fight back. They can engage an experienced Paxil birth defect lawyer to handle their Paxil lawsuit and to fight for their legal right to economic compensation for their losses, including medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.
