What is Spina Bifida?

Spina Bifida is a birth defect that occurs when the bones of the spine are not around the baby’s spinal cord correctly. This disorder can affect the skin on the back and can even affect the way a person walks and moves around.

There are mild versions of Spina Bifida and then there are two severe types. Symptoms of the mild version are a dimple, hairy patch or birthmark on the child’s back. In severe cases, you may see nerve ending coming out of the child’s back. The child may also have no feeling in their feet, legs or arms and may not be able to move those body parts.

Recenlty, many lawsuits have been filed after women were prescribed the epilepsy medication, Depakote, while pregnant. While taking Depakote, many women claim that their children suffered serious birth defects as a result.

If you or a loved one was prescribed Depakote while you were pregnant and you child suffered from Spina Bifida or another birth injury, contact the Depakote birth defect lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187.
