Should I Hire a Zoloft Lawyer?

Should you worry about protecting a large drug manufacturer who may have acted negligently to protect the profitability of their product, while your child suffered as of result of this negligence? We get this question lot: Should I hire a Zoloft lawyer? A lot of our clients don't consider themselves the 'litigious type' and thus can feel apprehensive about filing a lawsuit.

But consider this. Suppose you're pregnant or become pregnant while taking a doctor prescribed antidepressant such as Zoloft. You and your doctor have taken every precaution to follow the manufacturer's warnings and labels to ensure the utmost safety for you and your unborn child. But the manufacturer, in this case Pfizer, may not have acted as prudently. They may have known that Zoloft increased the risk of birth defects to children (whose mothers took the drug during pregnancy) and chose not to disclose this information.

So the question now becomes, should you worry about protecting a large drug manufacturer who may have acted negligently to protect the profitability of their product, while your child suffered as of result of this negligence? In this case it's almost irresponsible not to fight against companies that engage in negligent behavior for two main reasons. First, if the manufacture was in fact negligent then they need to be held accountable. They need, to the best of their ability, rectify the wrong that was done to you and/or your child. And since they can't go back in time and change their actions, they can at least offer a large amount of financial compensation to cover things like medical expense, pain and suffering, and any future expenses that may be incurred.

Second, bringing a lawsuit against these drug manufacturers is a great way to incentivize them to act more responsibly in the future. Since almost all of these companies are traded publically, they have an obligation to maximize shareholder value. One of the ways they do this is through maximizing profits which is why they sometimes rush drugs to market before they have been thoroughly and properly tested. If however, the financial disincentive to rush a drug to market exceeded the reward for increasing profits, then you would see a lot fewer dangerous drugs on the market, better testing, better labeling, etc. This all boils down to protecting future victims of carelessness and negligence in the pharmaceutical industry and you can be a part of this. Your actions can help not only you and your family financially, but also thousands of other potential victims of having to go through the same hardships you've endured.

Do I need a Zoloft Lawyer? Frankly, there is no one else who is qualified or willing to fight on your behalf. So if Zoloft was responsible for causing your child's birth defects, then yes, you do need a Zoloft lawyer. The sooner you contact one, the better too. At some point the statute of limitations will become an issue so the quicker you act, all else equal, the easier it will be to win your case.

With so many choices, How do I know who the Best Zoloft Lawyer is? It's important that you choose a lawyer who has a strong record in pharmaceutical litigation.
