Texas Medication Birth Defect Lawyer Handles Defective Medication Lawsuits Where Medications That Were Given to Pregnant Women Resulted in Birth Defects in Their Children by Texas Medication Birth Defect Lawyer and Texas Defective Medication Birth Defect Lawyer Jason S. Coomer 

Avoidable birth defects are one of the most devastating problems that can occur to a family and a new baby.  Parents who should be celebrating the birth of a new child, are often caught off guard when their child is born with severe disabilities and often  do not realize that someone may be responsible for the birth injury or defect including drug manufacturers that hid information about medications that can cause birth defects.  The family is typically busy taking care of the child with the serious health problems and often does not know that the birth defect was preventable.  When they discover the probable cause of the preventable birth defect they are often filled with anger and rage.  To find out that their child will have permanent health problems or that they lost their baby because a drug company hid research and did not provide an adequate warning of a product's safety can be extremely difficult  

If you believe that your child has suffered a birth defect or birth injury as a result of a defective drug, medication, or product, contact Austin Texas Birth Injury Lawyer Jason Coomer for a free review of your Texas Birth Injury Claim or Texas Birth Defect Claims or use our online submission form.

Medication Birth Defect Claims

Several medications, products, and drugs have been linked to birth defects.  Some of these medication and products have ample warnings that warn pregnant women to avoid taking these products while they are pregnant, however, some manufacturers have hidden the real dangers of their product in order to sell more of their product and value profits over healthy babies.  For these manufacturers, they may have short term profits, but over the long term they will suffer for the long term birth defects that they have caused. 

Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor Antidepressants (SSRIs)
Birth Defect Claims

Some medications that have been linked to birth defects include Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor Antidepressants (SSRIs).  Women that have taken SSRIs after the 20th week of pregnancy have a 6-fold increased risk of developing persistent pulmonary hypertension, a life-threatening lung disorderInfants with persistent pulmonary hypertension have abnormal blood flow through the heart and lungs and do not get enough oxygen to their bodies and may become very sick or die.  For more information on Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor Antidepressant Birth Defect Claims, please go to our SSRI Birth Defect Claim Information Page.

The SSRIs antidepressants that have been linked to persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN) include Paxil by GlaxoSmithKline, Zoloft marketed by Pfizer; Prozac sold by Eli Lilly; Celexa and Lexapro by Forest Laboratories, Effexor marketed by Wyeth, Luvox by Solvay, and the generic makers of these drugs include Barr Pharmaceuticals, Ranbaxy Labs and Genpharm.

Infants born with PPHN often require mechanical assistance to breath and even worse about 10% to 20% of the infants do not survive even when they receive treatment. The PPHN babies that do survive often experience developmental delays, brain abnormalities and hearing loss, experts say.

Lamictal Birth Defect Claims

Lamictal is a drug used to treat bipolar episodes and the most serious forms of epileptic seizures.  Unfortunately, there is now an association between pregnant women taking  Lamictal in there first three months of pregnancy and their children being born with a cleft palate or lip.  If you or a loved one has taken Lamictal during pregnancy and a baby has been born with a cleft lip or palate, please seek medical assistance as soon as possible and feel free to e-mail any questions you might have to texasbirthinjurylawyer@texaslawyers.com.

Austin Texas Birth Defect and Birth Injury Claims

Birth injury and birth defect claims are some of the most difficult types of personal injury claims to handle because of the emotion that goes along with them.  Parents who should be celebrating the birth of a new child, are often caught off guard when their child is born with severe disabilities.  It is often all the parents can do to take care of the their new child and they often don't realize that someone may be responsible for the birth injury or defect including medical professionals that have committed medical malpractice during the birthing process or drug manufacturers that hid information about medications that can cause birth defects.

Cerebral Palsy Birth Injury Claims

"Cerebral" refers to the brain and "palsy" to muscle weakness/poor control. Cerebral palsy itself is not progressive, but is a developmental problem that can occur during fetal development, the birthing process, or infancy.  Once a child has cerebral palsy, the child will not get worse over time, however, conditions such as muscle spasticity can develop which may get better or worse over time. Although cerebral palsy is not "curable", training and therapy treatments can help improve function.  For more information on Cerebral Palsy Birth Injury Claims go to our Cerebral Palsy Birth Injury Claim Information Page.

Brachial Plexus Birth Injury Claims

Brachial Plexus Injuries occur when the brachial plexus, a network of nerves between the neck and shoulder, is damaged. Because the brachial plexus conducts nerve signals from the spinal cord to the arm and hand, when it is damaged impairment of the arm and hand can occur causing a limp arm. The brachial plexus is a network of nerves formed by fibers located between the shoulder and the neck. Most brachial plexus injuries happen during birth when excessive lateral traction is applied to the fetal neck region during a vaginal birth and a traumatic stretching of the brachial plexus occurs causing damages to the nerves.  Brachial plexus injuries are more common in infants that are larger than average in size as they have more trouble moving through the birth canal.  For more information on Brachial Plexus Birth Injury Claims including Erb's Palsy Birth Injury Claims, please go to our Erb's Palsy and Brachial Plexus Birth Injury Claim Page.

Federal and Texas Medical Malpractice Claims

Federal Tort Claims and Texas Medical Malpractice Claims are some of the most complicated types of cases in the practice of law.
