If you were on prescription drugs during your pregnancy or took over-the-counter medication that provided no warning of any potential effects on your child, you may have a right to compensation for injuries your child sustained because of exposure. You want an experienced and aggressive lawyer to protect your interests, one who understands the laws and legal process and who has successfully represented other parents in similar situations.
When Medication during Pregnancy Injures Your Child
If your doctor prescribed prescription drugs such as Paxil, Accutane, Prozac, sleeping pills or antibiotics during your pregnancy or you took over-the-counter medication that provided no warning of any potential effects on your child, you may have a right to compensation for injuries your child sustained because of exposure to harmful drugs during pregnancy. Retaining an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible is an important first step to protect your legal rights.
