Skilled Drug Lawyers
Much of our drug litigation practice has been focused on the Paxil, which is a SSRI-class antidepressant. Paxil is used primarily to treat depression and anxiety. However, studies have shown that Paxil can have potentially devastating side effects, including suicidal and homicidal tendencies. In June 2001, a jury in our Tobin case found that Paxil can cause some people to become homicidal and/or suicidal. It is the only Paxil case to go to trial in this country. In 2005, GSK warned that women using Paxil during the first trimester of pregnancy are at double risk to give birth to an infant with a congenital heart malformation.
If you have been affected by an unsafe or defective pharmaceutical, you may be entitled to recover compensation for physical, emotional, and financial damages. Call (866) 76-PAXIL for more information.
Experienced Paxil Drug Litigation Attorneys
Vickery & Waldner garnered national media attention in 2001 when a jury ruled in favor of our client, Tim Tobin, who filed a lawsuit against Paxil manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline. Mr. Tobin’s wife, daughter and mother-in-law were killed by his father-in-law, who went on a Paxil-induced rampage just two days after being prescribed the antidepressant. The case remains the only instance in which a plaintiff won a lawsuit against an SSRI manufacturer.
