Oklahoma mom files Zoloft claim in Philadelphia court

Posted on May 1st, 2013 No Comments

A mother recently filed a civil complaint against the company Pfizer for an antidepressant drug that she took during pregnancy that caused her son to allegedly develop serious birth defects.

According to a complaint filed in the Multidistrict Zoloft Marketing Products Liability Litigation, Torrie Johnson’s son suffered birth defects after she took the antidepressant drug Zoloft during pregnancy. In her complaint, the Oklahoma plaintiff alleges her son was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and failure to thrive, among other health issues. As a result, her son had to undergo surgery to repair the defect. Johnson’s son was described as having poor muscle tone and was unable to bear weight.

Johnson also claimed the current label warning of Zoloft does not emphasize the risk of serious birth effects to babies if mothers ingest the antidepressant drug during pregnancy.

Unspecified financial and punitive damages to cover financial losses and medical treatment have been sought by Johnson in her complaint.

Unfortunately, Johnson and the many others involved in this Multidistrict litigation are not the only families to have suffered unduly from the negative effects of Zoloft. Call 800-641-9810 to talk with the legal team at Williams Kherkher if your child has been the victim of the dangerous side effects of this drug.
