What’s the problem?

According to the lawsuit, plaintiffs’ son was born in 2006 and subsequently diagnosed with a bilateral cleft lip and cleft palate. As a result of these problems, the boy has been forced to undergo numerous surgeries and countless visits with various physicians and specialists in 3 different states.

He underwent his first medical intervention within weeks of being born and had has first surgery before the age of one year, according to the complaint. Despite the extensive treatment, plaintiffs allege that the boy continues to have difficulty eating, speaking and hearing, and that the defects have impaired his development and significantly affected his quality of life.

“We are deeply grateful for the excellent medical care our son has received,” stated Robin Zgurski, the boy’s father. “But it has been a long struggle to address the injuries to our son that we believe Zofran caused. We hope our lawsuit helps raise the awareness of the dangers of the drug.”

The lawsuit was filed November 6 in federal court in San Francisco, alleging claims of:

  • Negligence
  • Strict products liability
  • Intentional misrepresentation
  • Concealment
  • Breach warranty
  • Violations of California law

Plaintiffs are seeking compensatory and punitive damages from GSK.
