Birth Defect Claims:  If your child has suffered the tragedy of a birth defect, then the cause may have been the result of a drug or medication taken by the mother during the time of pregnancy.  This is not the fault of the mother, but in fact the maker who failed to warn of such consequences when releasing their drug on the market.  The following are a number of the medications in question:

  • Anti-Depressants (such as Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Welbutrin, Effexor, Celexa, Luvox & Lexapro):  all drugs used to treat depression, anxiety and other mental disorders.
  • Depakote & Topamax:  used to treat epilepsy, bi-polar disorder and even migraine headaches. 
  • Diflucan:  used to treat meningitis and yeast infections.  

      Even assuming that the mother did not take any of the foregoing drugs during the pregnancy, if the child suffered any form of defect, then you should nonetheless obtain a legal analysis to rule out all other potential causes.
