Zoloft Birth Defects Center
Zoloft (sertraline) is a potent selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) that has been linked to numerous birth defects in children born to mothers who were taking the drug while pregnant.
When taken by an expectant mother in the first trimester of a pregnancy, Zoloft can cause persistent pulmonary hypertension, omphalocele, and septal defects in a baby. Taken later, it can cause respiratory problems, apnea, seizures, feeding difficulties, hypoglycemia, constant crying, and more.
You’ve probably heard about no-fee-until-you-win arrangements. It’s simple, and you’ll get it here. Only if and when you recover money to compensate you for your harm will you pay RLG. Otherwise, you pay nothing at all.
If you call for a free initial claim evaluation, you have no obligation whatsoever to hire RLG to represent you. If you do want RLG to stand up for you, we’ll send you an information package with a retainer agreement.
Every legal claim has a time limit. If you don’t sue in time, you risk losing your claim forever. You don’t want to delay. You want to be made whole again. So call RLG now to get the process started.
Unfortunately, when the clock starts—and how long it will run—isn’t always clear before it’s too late. That’s why speaking to a lawyer as soon as possible is the smart thing to do.
