Zofran Lawsuit Attorney

Serving Nationwide

Zofran was introduced in the early 1990s to treat nausea and vomiting experienced by cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. One decade later, the FDA issued a statement that explained a 32 milligram intravenous dose could cause life-threatening heart rhythm disorders. Although this dosage was recalled, the 0.15 milligram intravenous regime and oral doses are still given to chemo patients.

Other Problems with Zofran

In 2012, GlaxoSmithKline was sued and pleaded guilty to criminal fraud charges. This manufacturer was forced to pay billions of dollars on grounds the company wrongfully introduced the medication as a remedy for morning sickness. Studies linked Zofran to a heightened risk of birth defects, especially congenital heart problems and cleft palates. Allegations were made against GlaxoSmithKline, which stated the manufacturer was aware of the possible problems and continued to provide kickbacks to doctors who prescribed the drug for this purpose.

Who is Responsible for Damages?

Drug manufacturers have a duty to release medications that help the public without posing severe health risks and side effects. Court documents prove Glaxo was aware of the “unreasonable risk of harm” caused by Zofran, especially since it passes through the placenta of a pregnant woman. However, the manufacturer heavily promoted the drug as a cure for morning sickness. There is also evidence that Zofran causes QT prolongation and Torsade de Pointes, two lethal forms of heart arrhythmia. Other negative side effects include irregular heartbeat, dizziness, and shortness of breath.

If you or a loved one has been negatively affected by Zofran, you deserve fair compensation. GlaxoSmithKline must be held responsible for its negligent behavior. Large companies cannot get away with causing harm to innocent victims.

Contact an Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
