It is possible that the antiepileptic drugs that you took during pregnancy had an impact on your baby’s development. A recent study suggested that children who were exposed to antiepileptic drugs in the womb had a greater chance of suffering developmental delays.
However, the study does not provide definitive evidence about what happened to your child. In order to recover damages, and hold the pharmaceutical company that manufactured the drugs, accountable you will need to prove that it is more likely than not that the drug negatively impacted your child’s development.
An Iowa class action attorney can help you determine if there is a link between what happened to your child and the drugs that you took during pregnancy. If your child has been hurt, and other children have been similarly hurt, by the same drugs then you may be able to join (or start) a class action lawsuit and recover damages for the harm done by the unsafe drug.
For more information, we encourage you to contact an experienced Iowa class action lawyer today via this website or by phone at 515-984-0091 or 888-807-2752 to schedule an initial consultation. Together, we hope to help your child and protect her future.
