The Miller Firm is continuing to take Zofran birth defect cases and working to be a leading firm in the litigation. We just wanted to layout the 2012 Department of Justice with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), the manufacturers of Zofran. Again, GSK settled civil (2 billion) and criminal (1 billion) allegations related to their illegal promotion of Zofran and other drugs.
You can read the full allegations and settlement agreements on the Department of Justice website HERE.
To summarize the the allegations related to Zofran. GSK admitted during the time period of January 2002-December 2004 that it
1) Promoted the sale of Zofran for uses that it was not approved for safe use by the FDA. This unapproved use specifically included Nausea in pregnant women.
2) Made false representations about the safety and efficacy of Zofran as to pregnant women.
3) Offered and paid illegal kickbacks to doctors in relation to their promotion of Zofran.
Such actions are shocking in the context of the indifference it shows to the risks of birth defects in new born babies. We hope that these allegations will serve as a basis of punitive damages claims in the forthcoming litigation. Again, the Miller Firm is actively representing such victims and if you or a loved one may has a qualifying claim please call us immediately at 1-800-882-2525 or email our attorney handling zofran claims at [email protected] .
