Appeals Court Upholds Birth Injury Verdict

According to reports, an appeals court has just upheld a $3 million jury verdict against Johnson & Johnson in a birth injury lawsuit. The claim was filed by parents of a child who was born with severe birth injuries. The family asserted that the birth injuries were the result of the mother's taking Topamax during pregnancy. The child was born with a cleft palate and lift. According to the lawsuit, the manufacturer was liable for failing to warn doctors about the increased risk of birth injuries when taken during the first trimester. The jury found the manufacturer responsible and the appeals court agreed, noting that the company had a duty to warn physicians, and labeling issues with the FDA were a separate matter that didn't alter Johnson & Johnson's duty.

If your child has suffered a birth injury, it's important to consult with a dedicated California birth injury law firm right away. A knowledgeable birth injury lawyer can begin an investigation into all of the factors that may have led to an injury, whether it's the result of the actions of a hospital or physician, or caused by a chemical or drug. Many times, it may be possible to recover compensation.
