Abnormal Digits

The drug Depakote, which is used to treat seizures, migraine headaches, and bipolar disorder, has been linked to severe birth defects, some of which are treatable and some of which are much more difficult to remedy. Children whose mothers took Depakote during pregnancy may be susceptible to developing abnormal digits. It can be difficult for medical professionals to resolve these defects and treatment may require painful and costly surgery to address the abnormally developed fingers or toes. This can lead to some serious complications throughout life, so it is important to treat the condition early if it is possible.

If your child was born with abnormal digits after you took Depakote while pregnant, you should consult with an experienced attorney right away about your legal options as financial compensation may be available to you. Contact the Depakote birth injury lawyers of Williams Hart at 800-761-3187 for a free consultation.

Finger and Toe Defects

Finger and toe defects can interfere with a child’s ability to play, socialize, and eventually to perform essential work tasks. There are numerous digital abnormalities that may affect a child who has been prenatally exposed to Depakote, including the following:

  • Fused digits
  • Missing digits
  • Extra digits
  • Short digits
  • Weak or nonfunctional tendons

These defects may be difficult to treat, so it is important to contact a birth defect lawyer immediately following the birth of your child to ensure that you are able to seek the financial resources that will be necessary to secure treatment.
