The Effects of Spina Bifida

Spina Bifida is a painful and life long condition that occurs when a child is in the womb. Recently, there have been claims that the anti-convulsion drug Depakote, which is used to treat depression, bipolar disorder and seizures, has caused children to be born with birth defects such as Spina Bifida if their mothers took it while pregnant.

Neural tube disorders, such as Spina Bifida, are some of the most serious birth defects that can occur. Spina Bifida, specifically, occurs when there is a defect in the spine, which can result in the spinal cord sticking out through the vertebrae.

A person that suffers from this defect can experience difficulty walking, limb defects, chronic pain, fluid in the brain, incontinence, and other related brain disorders.

If your child has suffered from a birth defect because you took Depakote while pregnant, contact the Depakote Spina Bifida lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187.
