Abbott facing more lawsuits involving marketing

Abbott Laboratories is currently facing more lawsuits that claim that the antiseizure medication, Depakote, was marketed incorrectly and they violated consumer-protection laws by doing so.

Eight lawsuits haveĀ  been filed against executives of Abbott claiming breaches in “fiduciary duty” involving the sales of Depakote. The drug was approved to treat migraine headaches, epilepsy, manic episodes associated with bipolar disorder and epilepsy.

The company is currently being investigated in order to determine if it violated civil and criminal laws for marketing Depakote in order to treat aggression and agitation in women. Depakote was one of the top selling drugs for Abbott Laboratories with more than $1.6 billion in sales in 2007.

Depakote has also been facing legal troubles revolving around claims that the use of the drug during pregnancy has been linked to an increased risk of birth defects. Contact the Depakote lawsuit lawyers of Williams Hart today by calling 800-761-3187.
