Skilled and Caring Personal Injury Representation

Numerous studies have linked Celexa to a variety of birth defects, including congenital heart defects, persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN), cleft lip and cleft palate, clubfoot, cranial defects and others. While some of these defects can be corrected, others can threaten the lives of infants.

If you took Celexa during pregnancy and your child was born with a birth defect, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your child's medical costs, financial losses, and pain and suffering. Call Galligan Reid PC at 800-217-9312 for a free consultation.
