Fighting for Families Affected by Zofran in Massachusetts
This is Michael Brady Lynch, lead trial attorney for The Michael Brady Lynch Firm.
More than 250 lawsuits have been filed against Zofran manufacturer, GlaxoSmithKline(GSK) stating that the company’s anti-nausea drug caused birth defects. These cases were consolidated into a multidistrict litigation (MDL) in the US District Court of Massachusetts last year.
The Michael Brady Lynch Firm is dedicated to ensuring that justice is served to our clients. Right now, we are pushing litigation forward to bring such justice to the many families negatively affected by Zofran. Currently, plaintiff and defendant fact sheets have been approved along with product identification forms. These have been completed months ahead of schedule and will hopefully show the court how Zofran destroyed the lives of so many children.
Ondansetron, sold under the brand name Zofran, is a common anti-nausea drug. Women were prescribed Zofran during pregnancy to combat morning sickness, which unknowingly brought the risk of certain birth defects (i.e., cleft palates, atrial septal defects (ASD) and ventricular septal defects (VSD).
Imagine caring for a child with serious medical needs to find out that GSK knew it could happen all along. In 2012, the US Federal Government accused GSK of illegally marketing Zofran for use during pregnancy, despite never studying the drug’s effects on fetal development. The government said the company has been aware of Zofran’s potential birth defect risks for two decades but never warned the public.
