You see an obstetrician when you're pregnant because you want to make sure everything is going well throughout your pregnancy, so you should expect them to make safe decisions for you and your baby. If you took Zofran because your trusted obstetrician told you it was safe, you want to talk with a lawyer.
There are many women that took Zofran to deal with nausea throughout pregnancy, and their babies suffered because of it. Here are a few things you need when you head to consult with your personal injury attorney if your baby has problems.
Prescription and Dosage Information
You want detailed information about the prescription that was written for you and the amount of Zofran you were taking. The pharmacy where you went should be able to print out what was ordered for you, how many times you had it filled, and how you were directed to take the medication. This is going to help the lawyer see if the amount you were prescribed was more than common, or to see what generic brand you may have been given instead.
You want all of the necessary information about your obstetrician. This would be their contact information, the hospital where they are licensed to deliver children at, where they can be reached on what days, and anything else that may be needed to contact with them. If they work for a specific medical organization, the lawyer may need to contact their affiliation administrator instead of the physician directly.
Statement of Birth Defects and Problems
Have a pediatrician or specialist that is treating the birth defects and problems your child is dealing with write a statement. The statement should include what the specific diagnosis is, what the treatment is, and what could be needed long term. This is important to show the judge that a medical professional believes these are Zofran related problems.
You also should keep a detailed record of all the medical bills that have occurred because of the problems. You can get printed statements from your insurance provider or the local medical facilities where you go, so you don't miss any of the bills. The lawyer is going to go through the information to see if you have a strong case. If you do they may be able to settle the case out of court quickly to get you a settlement, to get the compensation you and your child deserve.
