Treacher Collins Syndrome and Depakote

The side effects of Depakote can cause some severe facial deformities in children born to a mother using the drug. In particular, a child may be born with a devastating facial deformity known as Treacher Collins syndrome. This condition leaves a person without many of the major distinguishing features of a face. As a result of this deformity, a child may be born with some serious health concerns as well as a difficult social life ahead of them.

If your child has suffered because of the side effects of the anti-seizure medication Depakote, you may be entitled to pursue financial compensation. For more information about your legal options, contact a Depakote attorney with Williams Hart today by calling 800-761-3187.

Signs of Treacher Collins Syndrome

Children born with Treacher Collins syndrome may exhibit a range of distinguishing characteristics. These often include the following:

  • An abnormally small jaw
  • Downward-cast eyes
  • Small, unformed, or missing ears
  • Loss of hearing
  • Undeveloped cheek bones
  • Malformed eyelids
  • Cleft palate

This facial deformity usually requires extensive management and treatment, which in some cases can prove a serious financial burden for a family. If your child’s facial deformity was caused by a dangerous pharmaceutical product, you should not be left shouldering the financial burden associated with his or her treatment on your own.
