DID YOU TAKE TERBUTALINE OR BRETHINE IN THE LAST
15 YEARS WHILE PREGNANT?
YOUR CHILDREN MAY BE ELIGIBLE FOR COMPENSATION.
Terbutaline in California
Did you take Brethine or Terbutaline during pregnancy between 1998 and 2011? If so, your children could be entitled to compensation. If your child suffers from autism, and you had twins, your case is even more vital to holding those responsible accountable.
Our attorneys recently obtained a very significant decision from the California Supreme Court that allows victims — specifically fraternal twins with brain damage and severe autism — to sue the brand-name manufacturer (Novartis) for injuries they suffered in utero when their mother was prescribed a generic drug called Terbutaline.
Brethine (brand name)/Terbutaline (generic) was an asthma drug that was prescribed off-label to women to prevent pre-term labor. The dirty little secret of the drug is that Novartis (brand-name manufacturer who later sold off the drug) knew that it could cause damage to fetuses in utero but did not adequately warn doctors or patients.
The problem — for thousands of families — is that their children may have suffered severe complications as a result.
They knew of the risk and they buried it.
TBM is the first firm in America to obtain a standing state supreme court ruling that a brand-name manufacturer can be held liable for injuries to someone who took a generic drug. Considering over 80% of prescription drugs taken in America are generic, the implications of this case cannot be understated.
Contact us today and fill out the following fields, our team will be in touch to discuss how you can win back from this historic ruling.
Even if your child is not autistic or does not suffer from learning/social difficulties, we still want to hear from you.
