San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 29, 2014
Resource4thePeople announced today that its national network of attorneys will continue to offer free consultations in 2014 to consumers who are seeking compensation over claims contained in lawsuits* alleging that birth defects have been caused by the use of Zoloft and other known as SSRIs.
These claims are contained in the court files of hundreds of federal lawsuits from across the country alleging women who used selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors such as Zoloft before or during their pregnancies gave birth to infants suffering serious health defects.
Many of these cases* have been consolidated before a federal judge in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
“We are also announcing that we will continue to provide consumers with updates involving this litigation in which the judge is now presiding over pre-trial evidence-gathering involving lawsuits against the manufacturers of Zoloft and other SSRIs,” said Resource4thePeople.
The announcement of the continuation of the no-cost consultations was made after numerous inquiries were received from consumers about whether Resource4thePeople’s national network of attorneys would, after 2013, continue to offer them in connection with SSRI birth defect allegations.
The increase in the number of consumers inquiring about issues raised in the SSRI federal multidistrict litigation and other lawsuits demonstrates that many consumers are seeking experienced, aggressive legal help, said Resource4thePeople.
Resource4thePeople said that eligible consumers will be provided information about legal options to seek compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering and other costs in connection with expenses incurred in connection with the allegations.
“However, each case is different and there may be legal time limits involved and consumers are advised to contact us as soon as possible in order to preserve all of their legal options,” said Resource4thePeople.
The SSRI lawsuits that have been assigned to U.S. District Court Judge Cynthia Rufe in Pennsylvania include allegations of at least one life-threatening birth defect. Here is a detailed list of some of the defects that have been identified in the federal lawsuits now consolidated before Judge Rufe:
