Frequently asked questions about cleft lip and palate

Cleft lips and palates are the most common birth defects in the U.S. because they occur in one in every 1,000 births. These orofacial palate defects occur when baby’s upper lip and roof of their mouth, fail to fuse together.

The severity of this birth defect can vary from a small notch in the child’s upper lip to the child’s whole palate. Difficulties that arise from this defect can include feeding issues, breathing issues, speech issues, and ear infections.

A cause for why these defects occur has not yet been pinpointed, but family inheritance has been linked to it. Also, certain drug use during pregnancy, such as the use of anti-convulsants, has also been tied to the product.

If you or a loved one was prescribed an anti-convulsant, such as Depakote, during pregnancy, contact the Depakote lawsuit lawyers of Williams Hart today by calling 800-761-3187 today.
