FLORIDA TOPAMAX ATTORNEYS
Dangerous Prescription Drugs Litigation Attorneys Serving Clients Nationwide
There is increasing evidence of a connection between the use of Topamax by pregnant women and birth defects in their newborns. The most prominent defects have been cleft lip and cleft palate deformities. Also referred to by its generic name, topiramate, the drug may also present an increased risk of developing a genital deformity known as hypospadias.
Representing victims throughout Florida and across the United States.
Topamax was originally approved to treat seizures related to epilepsy and was later approved for the treatment of migraine headaches. Recent information indicates that expectant mothers who take Topamax during the first trimester of pregnancy can put their unborn children at risk for these defects. Many women of childbearing age have been prescribed this drug.
The Florida Topamax drug litigation lawyers at the law firm of William E Johnson, PA are investigating these cases for possible litigation. If your child has suffered a birth defect after you were prescribed Topamax, you may be entitled to seek damages.
Trasylol Settlement with Bayer Pharmaceuticals for $9.475 Million
Our experience handling a broad range of complex drug litigation has allowed us to secure impressive results for our clients. Our firm was appointed to the Plaintiffs Steering Committee for the Trasylol Multidistrict Litigation in West Palm Beach, Florida. Trasylol, a drug used to limit bleeding during heart surgery, was marketed by Bayer Pharmaceuticals as a safe and effective medication. In 2006, after the drug had been on the market for nearly twelve years and was used in approximately one-third of heart operations in America, a study performed by Doctor Dennis Mangano indicated that the use of Trasylol had serious side effects. These included kidney damage, kidney failure, and even death. Bayer took little notice of Dr. Mangano's findings and continued to sell the drug for another two years, until, the FDA urged that Trasylol be withdrawn from the market in November 2007. In this two year period, Trasylol was found to be the cause of approximately 22,000 deaths and numerous catastrophic injuries. Through aggressive advocacy, and most importantly, unparalleled dedication and support for its clients, the law firm of William E. Johnson, PA is pleased to announce a settlement of $9.475 million with Bayer to resolve its Trasylol claims.
