Potential Impacts of Zofran
Edwards, Frickle & Culver, Montana Trial Attorneys is currently prosecuting and investigating cases against Glaxo Smith Kline and its product, Zofron, for causing serious and severe birth defects when Glaxo Smith Kline marketed and sold its product, Zofron, "off label" to pregnant women who were suffering serious nausea sickness. Glaxo Smith Kline had done studies in the early 1980's on animals that resulted in malformations in offspring that also showed Zofran transferred through the placental barrier and impacted the mammal fetuses. Later, Glaxo further conducted studies that confirmed that ingested or injected Zofran readily crossed the female placenta and exposed fetuses to substantial concentrations, Glaxo did or should have known about these risks and failed to inform expecting mothers of the information it had and knew or should have known.
Our firm has seen the difficulties this "off label" marketing campaign has created on children and their families - with no fault of their own. If you believe your family may be suffering as a result of Glaxo misleading you or your family about the potential impacts of Zofran, please call us.

Our firm is proud to represent clients who have suffered injuries while working on oil rigs, oil drilling platforms or while performing any task associated with the oil fields in Montana or North Dakota.
