Children born with congenital defects likely to experience abuse

Researchers at the University of Texas recently discovered evidence that children are at higher risk of experiencing abuse if they are born with congenital defects like spina bifida or cleft lip/palate.

The University of Texas Health Science Center revealed that children who are born with spina bifida are 58% more likely to face abuse than children without. Children who are born with cleft palates or lips also saw an increased likelihood of abuse by 40% when compared to children with out birth defects. Researchers also found that such abuse rates are particularly pertinent within the child’s first year of life.

Unfortunately spina bifida and cleft palates and lips are some of the common birth defects caused by mothers taking Depakote during pregnancy. If you think your child’s birth defect was caused by this dangerous anti-seizure drug, the legal team of Williams Hart may be able to help you take legal action.
