Zofran (ondansetron) is a prescription drug developed by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) to treat symptoms of nausea in cancer patients as a result of surgery, chemotherapy, and/or radiation. However, Zofran has been prescribed by some physicians to treat nausea and vomiting in pregnant women, which may have caused birth defects—including malformations of the mouth (cleft lip or cleft palate), heart defects and other birth defects—in their children.
ZofranLawsuitHelp.com was launched to provide up to date information on the latest Zofran litigation, information on potentially serious birth defects from the drug’s use during pregnancy and to give Zofran users the ability to submit their information for a free case review.
Specifically, Zofran users who used the drug during pregnancy and had a child born with malformations of the mouth (cleft lip/palate), heart defects or other growth defects related to the development of the child, may have grounds to file a lawsuit.

Every state has maximum time limitations on when an injury claim must be filed (known as statutes of limitations). If a claim is not filed against the manufacturer, retailers, and/or healthcare providers before the statute of limitation expires, the injured persons are prevented from bringing a claim against the parties who may be liable. If you have been potentially injured by the use of Zofran, your statute of limitations may already have expired, or may expire in the very near future. Unfortunately, there is no way for us to tell you without us first reviewing the individual facts of your situation. The one thing we can absolutely state is that every day you wait to retain an attorney may be the last day you can bring a claim.
