The law firm of Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman is investigating the link between antidepressants and autism and is representing hundreds of families across the United States.

SSRI antidepressants (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) have been linked to an increased risk of autism.  A report published in the Archives of General Psychiatry in 2011, reveals research that links the use of SSRI antidepressants during pregnancy with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) in children.  Researchers discovered mothers that took SSRI antidepressants during the first trimester of their pregnancy were found to have about a 3-fold increased risk giving birth to a child with ASD.  Children born to mothers who took the antidepressant during the 2nd and 3rd trimesters were found to have a 2-fold risk of ASD.

Baum Hedlund has the longest track record in the United States handling antidepressant personal injury and wrongful death cases.  Baum Hedlund is listed in Martindale-Hubbell’s Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers, The Best Lawyers in America® for 2014-16 and Top Ranked Law Firms™ for 2014-16.
