West Virginia to receive $1 million in Depakote settlement

The state of West Virginia has been scheduled to receive nearly $1 million in the Depakote marketing settlement after Abbott Laboratories was ordered to pay nearly $1.5 billion to resolve claims that Depakote was marketed illegally to treat disorders that it was not approved to do so.

In the case, Depakote was ordered to give $700 million to the federal government and this will be split between multiple states. Depakote is an antiseizure medication that was approved by the FDA to treat bipolar disorder, migraine and epileptic seizures.

Depakote is also facing legal issues for its link to increased risk of birth defects when taken during pregnancy. Lawsuits against the drug maker regarding this type of case are also being discussed at this time.

If this has happened to you orĀ  a loved one, contact the DepakoteĀ  lawsuit lawyers of Williams Hart today by calling 800-761-3187.
