We are accepting Paxil claims involving women that took an SSRI during their pregnancy resulting in their child being born with a birth defect.
The drug, Paxil (Paroxetine) is one of the top selling drugs in the U.S. due to its ability to effectively treat individuals suffering from major depression, panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, social anxiety disorder, and posttraumatic stress syndrome. Paxil is one of the most potent and selective of the SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) type drugs. SSRIs work by preventing receptors in the human brain from reabsorbing already released serotonin, the neurotransmitter that is understood to help people maintain feelings of well-being. By preventing serotonin reabsorption, Paxil helps people sustain an optimistic mental equilibrium while alleviating negative feelings.
However, in recent news, Paxil is becoming quite popular, due to the multiple class action lawsuits being filed on behalf of individuals who experienced allergic reaction, seizures, problems with balance or coordination, confusion, hallucinations, racing or abnormal heart rate, fainting, or suicidal thoughts. In addition pregnant women can experience heart birth defects, persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN), omphalocele (an abnormality in newborns in which the infant’s intestine or other abdominal organs protrude from the navel), or craniosynostosis (connections between sutures-skull bones prematurely close during the first year of life, which causes an abnormally shaped skull),spinal bifida, miscarriage, premature birth, hyperplastic Left / Right Syndrome ( HLHS), and cleft lip or cleft palate.
The manufacturer of Paxil, GlaxoSmithKline, knew that taking the drug left a possible risk of patients experiencing these side effects, however, failed to warn individuals of the defective and dangerous nature of the drug. Therefore, the pharmaceutical company may face liability for lawsuits filed from those injured.
Filing A Paxil Class Action Lawsuit
At the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. our dangerous drug lawyers represent patients or the family members of patients who have suffered serious injuries after the use of Paxil. For this type of lawsuit, a class action lawsuit may be filed. A class action lawsuit is when a large number of individualized claims are represented by one lawsuit. Filing this type of lawsuit may be beneficial in some scenarios because often times due to the large number of claims within the lawsuit, the efficiency of the legal process can increase, as well as costs of litigation could become lower.
However, class action lawsuits can be detrimental in one’s case, and filing an individual claim may be more beneficial to a victim. It becomes common with class action lawsuits that many class members are forced into a lower settlement, due to the fact that they are “grouped” in with everyone else, and their specific injuries may not stand out in the crowd.
