Filing a Depakote Lawsuit

We are currently screening cases involving claims of injuries sustained by pregnant woman who were prescribed and took the prescription drug Depakote. Woman who took Depakote have given birth to infants suffering severe birth defects, including:

  • Spinal Biffida
  • Brain or Cardiovascular Defects
  • Facial or Skull Deformities

Depakote use by pregnant woman has also been linked to fetal valproate syndrome. This is a serious medical condition that can cause children to develop facial deformities over their lifetime.

The FDA has recently announced that Depakote should not be taken by pregnant woman as a treatment for migraine headaches. The FDA found that there was evidence that this medication can cause a decrease in the child's IQ.
