Zoloft Birth Defect Lawyer – Now Reviewing Cases

— March 14, 2011

Zoloft Birth Defect Lawyers are currently reviewing potential Zoloft lawsuits on behalf of women who took the drug Zoloft (Sertraline) while pregnant and gave birth to a child with certain types of birth defects.

“Numerous studies from across the globe have shown that taking antidepressants such as Zoloft increase the risk of giving birth to a child with serious health problems,” said Lane. Lane was referring to a variety of studies that link the class of antidepressants known as Selective Serotonin-Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI) to an increased risk of birth defects. Those studies have linked the following types of birth defects to use of SSRI drugs such as Zoloft during pregnancy:

 Cleft Palate

Cleft Lip



Club Foot

Prsistent Primary Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN)

Septal Defects

Atrial Septal Defects (ASD)

Vntricular Septal Defects (VSD)

Pulmonary Valve Stenosis

Tricuspid Valve Stenosis

Aortic Stenosis

Transposition of the Great Arteries

Other Defects


Autism Spectrum Disorder


Many Zoloft lawsuits have already been filed on behalf of women who gave birth to babies with defects associated with the use of Zoloft. The Zoloft lawsuits have been centralized in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania before Judge Cynthia Rufe.
