Zofran lawyers note a lawsuit filed by the mother of an 8-year-old boy who claims that her son suffered multiple birth defects caused by Zofran, an anti-nausea drug used to treat morning sickness in pregnant women. Although drug maker GlaxoSmithKline denies any link between birth defects and Zofran, the lawsuit asserts claims for breach of warranty, negligent failure to warn, wantonness, negligence and strict liability.

8-Year-Old Boy To Endure Lifelong Health Issues, Claims Lawsuit
The lawsuit, which was filed on April 1, 2015, in U.S. District Court in Birmingham, Alabama, claims the 8-year-old boy was born with a high narrow pallet, extra digits on his hands, a distended kidney, and has been diagnosed with glaucoma.
The lawsuit further states that the boy is a special needs student who has suffered seizures, doesn’t talk, and has exhibited delayed reactions since birth, and that his health issues are expected to last throughout the duration of his life. The lawsuit is seeking compensatory or punitive damages for claims under Alabama’s extended manufacturer’s liability doctrine.
