Infant heart problems caused by Zoloft are one reason for the numerous lawsuits emerging against the drug’s manufacturer.
Babies whose mothers ingested Zoloft show increased risk of heart defects, including hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS). Infants with HLHS have hearts with severely underdeveloped left sides. Valves in the left side of the heart are too small to allow sufficient blood flow, and other pieces of the heart are also diminished in size. HLHS often requires intensive surgery and can be fatal if left untreated.
A variation of this defect, hypoplastic right heart syndrome (HRHS) has been linked to Zoloft use as well.
If your child or a loved one’s child suffers from this condition, and the child’s mother took Zoloft during pregnancy, you may be entitled to compensation. Submit your case for our review by clicking the link below.
