Free Case Evaluation for Zoloft Birth Defects Victims Offered by Popular Consumer Website

April 03, 2013 -- Depression is a debilitating illness that affects many Americans today. In an *article published on CDC’s (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) website, studies have found that about an estimated 1 in every 10 Americans reports to experience depression in varying levels. More serious than just simple mood swings, clinical depression is a mental illness that can also affect pregnant women.

In a **report by The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), they found that between 14-23% of women will struggle with some symptoms of depression during their pregnancy.

When the drug Zoloft (Sertraline hydrochloride) was first introduced in 1991 by Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, women who were experiencing depression during their pregnancy were prescribed the drug by their doctors and therefore took it without question; unaware of the negative side effects it could pose to their unborn child. Up to this day, lawsuits are being filed against Pfizer for failing to disclose the risk of taking the antidepressant drug during pregnancy.

In response to the needs of these women to proper consumer information, the consumer website ZoloftBirthDefectsNews.com has recently launched a service that will provide free case evaluation for plaintiffs who want to confirm if they have a case to file a Zoloft lawsuit.

In an article from their website, they provide information people need to establish if they have legal ground to file a lawsuit. The author of the article Patricia Goldwin says:

“A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine in February 2006, reported that the risk for a rare birth defect, PPHN (Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn), was six times higher for women who took Zoloft and other SSRIs after the 20th week of pregnancy than for those who took other antidepressants or no antidepressants. Following publication of the study, the FDA issued an alert in July 2006 advising doctors and consumers of the increased risks for this life threatening Zoloft birth defect.” - ZoloftBirthDefectsNews.com Article ‘Zoloft Linked to Serious Birth Defects’

Through information found in their site, people can read about Zoloft cases and side effects like Zoloft birth defects and see if their case is eligible for legal compensation. Their online portal allows people to provide information for their staff to evaluate their case and connect them to a Zoloft lawyer.

This free case evaluation is a new addition to their website’s commitment to help victims of Zoloft birth defects seeking proper legal representation.
