Impaired Cognitive Development

The valproate-based drug Depakote, which is used to treat epileptic seizures, migraine headaches, and bipolar disorder, has been linked to many serious birth and developmental defects in children whose mothers took the drug during pregnancy. One of these developmental defects is impaired cognitive development, affecting a child’s cognitive abilities. This birth defect can have devastating effects on a child’s future and his or her family.

If you or someone you love has suffered because of the dangerous drug Depakote, don’t hesitate to contact the Depakote birth injury lawyers of Williams Hart at 800-761-3187 and schedule an initial consultation to discuss your legal rights and options.

Common Developmental Problems

Children with impaired cognitive development and their family members can be greatly affected by this condition. A child with impaired cognitive development will face many challenges, including impairments in:

  • Information processing
  • Perceptual skill
  • Conceptual resources
  • Language development
  • Problem solving
  • Social skills development

Problems such as these are likely to be very difficult for a child and his or her family to cope with. There are likely to be many expenses associated with impaired cognitive development, including speech therapy, special tutoring, special care services, and many others. If your child was born with this birth defect and you took Depakote while pregnant, financial compensation may be available to help cover many of these expenses.
