What does a win for Pfizer mean when it comes to it’s Zoloft lawsuits? A win for anyone, no matter the context is usually a good thing. It would be difficult for anyone at Pfizer to think this is a bad sign. However, there are still at least 1000 cases or so pending, and not every jury will see the defense’s argument in the same light.
Time is the only factor that will be able to shed light on what actually occurs with the rest of the trials. Zoloft isn’t the only SSRI that’s been brought to the examination table, Paxil, famously saw a billion dollar settlement by Glaxo Smith Kline. Researchers claim that there are links between Zoloft and certain birth defects, similar to other SSRI drugs. Mothers who took Zoloft and saw birth defects in their children will now have to wait and see the next verdicts in the fight against Pfizer’s Zoloft.
For now, Pfizer has a win under it’s belt but that doesn’t mean it’s a bad sign plaintiffs. Prempro, Viox and Paxil all had their fair share of losses and wins on their way to large settlement arrangements. Plaintiffs will now have to hold tight as the next few cases go to jury, perhaps Pfizer will see cases go out of it’s favor and settle but that will take time, years most likely.
