Tennessee residents have heard reports about the dangerous side effects that can result from taking Zoloft while pregnant. Many people who took Zoloft while they were pregnant may have children that were born with birth defects and other side effects and personal injuries
According to this lawsuit, parents Michael and Shana Reid of Tennessee claim that their daughter was born with birth defects resulting from Zoloft. Shana Reid was prescribed Zoloft by her doctor while she was pregnant. Reid read the warning label but failed to see anything about birth defects so she trusted that the antidepressant medication was safe to take while she was pregnant. The lawsuit states that if you had been warned about the risk of birth defects she would not have taken the medication.
The Reid’s baby was born on October 14, 2004 with life-threatening congenital birth defects. These birth defects resulted in the baby having to have corrective surgery and it is also likely, that the child will need more surgeries in the future.
This Tennessee Zoloft lawsuit claims that Pfizer was aware of the risk of side effects after taking Zoloft, but failed to adequately warn the public or the medical community. The lawsuit claims that the advertising and marketing by Pfizer of Zoloft was misleading to pregnant women and their doctors because it failed to provide accurate information about the possible dangers of taking Zoloft while pregnant.
The plaintiffs are seeking compensation in excess of $75,000 in damages for failure to warn, design defect, fraud, negligence, gross negligence, negligent design, and breach of warranties.
