Preparing for Your Family’s SSRI Lawsuit

If your child suffered an SSRI-related injury such as persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN), it may be wise to speak with a dedicated and knowledgeable attorney at Fears Nachawati about the legal effects of your family’s physical pain, emotional suffering, medical costs, and lost wages.


For a tragic number of families, a pregnant mother’s prescription antidepressant, such as Lexapro, Celexa, or Prozac, to name a few, impacts her in utero child’s development. This class of drugs, known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), is powerful and dangerous. More than a few children have been born with physical, chemical, and behavioral birth defects requiring considerable attention from doctors and parents.


There’s a legal question that many families are asking of the makers of these drugs: when it comes to side effects, what did you know and when did you know it? In so far as drug manufacturers knew of the risks of these medications and didn’t protect or warn patients, they may be legally responsible.


Find out if a legal action is right for your family and, if so, what steps you should take. You may have preparations to make. It’s good to be prepared. For your free consultation, call us at 1.866.545.8364 or email We’re ready to help you.
