Risk of club hands linked to Depakote use

The use of Depakote during pregnancy has been linked to the increased risk of giving birth to a child with birth defects. These can include club hands and fingers, abnormal digits, aortic stenosis, spina bifida, and cleft lips and palates.

All of these defects can result in extra care for children, pain and suffering, and expensive medical treatment. Doctors can usually diagnose this defect at birth because the arm bends in a strange direction. This usually occurs at the wrist.

If clubbing occurs at the fingers and thumbs, it may be more difficult to diagnose. Some of the costs that are associated with the clubbed fingers and hands include extended hospital stays, prescription medication, surgical procedures, and doctor visits.

If you took Depakote while pregnant and you gave birth to a child with club hands, you need experienced representation on your side to help you fight for compensation for your child’s pain and suffering. Contact the Depakote club hands lawyers of Williams Hart today by calling 800-761-3187.
