Birth Injuries Overview
Chicago Birth Injury Attorneys
The use of Prozac during the third trimester of pregnancy may result in the child being born with birth defects. Possible life-threatening heart defects include persistent pulmonary hypertension in a newborn (PPHN), ventricle septal defect (VSD), atrial septal defect (ASD) and others. Non life-threatening defects can include clubfoot, cleft palate, asthma and lung problems.
If you used Prozac during your pregnancy and your child was born with one or more birth defects, you may be entitled to compensation. You should speak with an attorney to discuss your case.
