Man with Birth Defect Allegedgely Associated with Depakote Drug Sues Abbott

21-year-old Jasper James of South Carolina filed charges against drug giant Abbott Laboratories on the claim that he suffered birth defects when he was born.

Jasper said in a complaint that he suffered birth defects when he was born because his mother took Depakote while she was still pregnant with him. James allegedly has spina bifida, a neural tube defect that adversely affected his spinal cord and its coverings. Due to this birth defect James has supposedly lost a normal life and earnings, in addition to suffering pain throughout his life. In his claim, James is seeking $75,000 in damages.

Women expecting to get pregnant or who are currently pregnant should be warned by doctors not to take Depakote, and Abbott should have a full knowledge of it, according to James’ complaint.

Depakote has been shown to cause serious health problems for those who mothers took it while pregnant. As such, victims of Abbott’s negligence in releasing warnings about this drug’s hazards should be financially compensated for their losses.
