Depakote Congenital Hip Dislocation Lawyers

The prescription drug Depakote can have a drastic impact on a child’s early development in the womb, possibly contributing to serious health problems that require treatment at birth. While parents may hope to enjoy their new life with their child, they may also face a future of additional medical treatments to help that child maintain a high standard of living. In particular, Depakote has been linked to congenital hip dislocation, which can hinder a child’s ability to eventually walk.

If your family has been shaken by a birth defect caused by Depakote’s dangerous side effects, you may be wondering about what next steps you can take to fight for compensation from the drug’s manufacturer. For more information about your legal options, contact the Depakote congenital hip dislocation attorneys of Williams Hart at 800-761-3187.

Treatment for Congenital Hip Dislocation

Depakote’s dangerous side effects can lead to a change in a child’s hip joint development. Instead of developing normally, a child’s leg may be dislocated from the actual socket of the hip. This means that the connection between the leg and hip does not develop correctly, possibly causing problems with mobility and even some bone complications in the future.

However, this problem is usually treatable. The following treatment options may be available:

  • Surgically readjusting the leg into the hip socket
  • Attaching a Pavlik harness, which works to bring the bone back into the socket
  • Readjusting the leg through a procedure known as a closed reduction

After these treatments, a child may need to go through significant rehabilitation and physical therapy. The costs of this rehabilitation and treatment can prove significant for the family, placing an unexpected financial burden on the household.
