December 30, 2015 — San Diego, CA. Protecting the Right of the People against Big Pharma’s bad drugs and defective medical devices across the U.S. is what we do best. We are the voice for people who’ve been harmed by large corporations who tend to put “Profits over People”.
Mothers Devastated by Zofran Birth Defects: (Warning may cause tears)
These are the toughest cases for us to deal with emotionally. We’ve literally been contacted by thousands of women over the last 12 months who’ve told us about the terrible birth defects that may be linked to Zofran use.
The mother of the baby was beside herself. She was crying every day and night. She always wondered if the Zofran was linked to her babies heart defect because nobody in her family had any type of heart issues. When she saw our ad, she starred at the computer screen crying for an hour.
After mustering enough bravery to call our office, she spoke staff member Phil Jackson. She poured her heart out to Phil and they cried together, laughed together and eventually we were able to get her the help she needed. She wanted her baby to have a voice. Even though it was terribly painful to relive the tragedy, she did not want to go quietly in the night.
After the call, she said she felt so much better and about a week later, we checked in her and she was seeking therapy for her sadness and said she is doing much better now knowing that we are going to make these greedy drug companies pay for what they didn’t tell her.
Mothers sad story of losing a baby daughter – Was Zofran the cause?
This story highlights the fact that many doctors weren’t told of the dangers of prescribing Zofran for pregnant mothers.
I took Ondanestron (Zofran) my whole first pregnancy. My daughter ended up stillborn at 39.5 weeks with no warnings. We waited 8 years for this little miracle and just like that she was gone.
The autopsy, from what we were told was her heart but, may have been repairable if it would have been diagnosed by a children’s cardiologist, but it was too late.
I was pregnant again 7 months later and very worried during my pregnancy it would happen with her as well so my OB set up a ultrasound with the specialist.
I lived in fear my whole pregnancy with our second daughter. There is not a moment that doesn’t go by that I am not still sad and grieving for our first daughter. She would have been 4 this year. I still go to bed and cry, inside I am screaming, crying. My heart aches not only for her, but now for her sister who asks to hold her.
Back in March a young woman filed a Zofran lawsuit claim with us, read her story here: https://www.nationalinjuryhelp.com/dangerous-drugs/mothers-story-zofran-birth-defects/
Bad Risperdal Drug Leads to Embarrassing Male Breast Growth:
The most prominently alleged Risperdal side effect is called gynecomastia, a condition whereby adolescent boys begin to develop breasts much like any girl of that general age would do. This and other related side effects of Risperdal leads to more than just physical problems, but emotional problems as well.
Earlier this month one of the Risperdal victims won his case against Johnson & Johnson for $500,000 verdict. Read about this story here: https://www.nationalinjuryhelp.com/dangerous-drugs/boy-hurt-risperdal-drug-case/
We have been seeing many medical device problems over the last couple years.
We feel that many manufacturers have been rushing testing in order to get to the market faster, and thus gain more profits. We recommend that anyone getting a medical device do research about the device before undergoing any procedure.
Woman Needs Emergency Surgery from Defective IVC Filter:
Once again it seems that proper testing of medical devices goes unchecked by the FDA, when will this madness stop?
A woman was suffering from nausea and severe sweating when she arrived at the ER. When doctors examined her, they discovered a rapid heartbeat with elevated blood pressure. Her medical records showed that she had been implanted with an IVC filter four years prior to her arrival at the ER.
Researchers have found that IVC filters have a potentially dangerous side effect. The small, cage-like devices are inserted into the vena cava vein, which takes deoxygenated blood from the lower legs back to the heart. It’s this specific vein that can carry serious blood clots, potentially causing a pulmonary embolism.

While these stories are indeed sad, we hold hope that change at the Federal level, both congress and the F.D.A. work to make tougher drug laws and testing more complete so that every day citizens can have faith that these companies are doing the right thing, that is testing and making sure that drugs and devices are safe for use. Until that happens Hood National Law Group is here to fight for the people’s right to sue these corporations for the pain and undue suffering inflicted on many individuals.
Wishing you all a safe and happy 2016!
