Before Taking on GlaxoSmithKline, Hire a Paxil Lawyer
Since its introduction to the U.S. market in 1992, Paxil (paroxetine) has been tremendously profitable for maker GlaxoSmithKline, earning the drugmaker billions of dollars in profits. The antidepressant drug, however, has also cost GSK a fair share of money, as the company has spent around $1 billion to settle Paxil lawsuits over the years, including claims related to birth defects, suicide, and suicide attempts.
With hundreds of Paxil birth defect cases still pending across the country, GSK last year set aside an additional $2.4 billion to fund legal settlements. If you or a loved one were injured by Paxil, you could be entitled to your fair share of compensation. But to ensure that you receive an amount sufficient to pay for your losses, it is critical that you have an experienced Paxil lawyer in your corner.
Paxil Birth Defect Side Effects
Over the last several years a number of studies linking Paxil to severe birth defects have been published. Two separate studies published in 2005 found a connection between Paxil and cardiac birth defects. In the following year, a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) concluded that women who took Paxil during the later stages of pregnancy raised the likelihood of delivering a child with persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN) six fold. Most recently, a study published in June 2011 by Finnish researchers linked Paxil use in pregnant women to an increased risk of congenital heart defects.
Without a Paxil Birth Defect Lawyer, You Risk Not Receiving Compensation
According to Bloomberg, families that have sued GSK over their children’s Paxil birth defects have secured, on average, $4 million. While no amount of money can adequately make up for an injury to your child, a monetary award can at least help pay for the cost of medical care and other losses. Without help from an attorney, though, there’s a chance you will recover nothing.
That’s because GSK, a company with sales of nearly $11 billion in the second quarter of 2011 alone, can afford to defend itself vigorously. While you may not be able to match GSK financially, you still deserve access to excellent legal representation.
