What damages are available for myself and my child in a Zofran birth defect lawsuit?
As of now, GlaxoSmithKline has not made any significant settlement offer to a group of people affected by Zofran. Also, many of the initial cases against them for birth defects are still in the initial stages. Therefore, while it is easy to say that if you or your child was injured because of the drug, you should be able to recover. It is not easy to say how much, and you will not be able to grab from a large settlement pot because that does not exist right now. Whether you have a case or not must be determined on its own circumstances. These cases are very complicated and time-consuming. You should speak personally with an attorney about the potential for a case, the mechanics of bringing it to trial, the costs involved, the time it will take, and the chances of recovery.
