Depakote Syndactyly Lawyers

The prescription drug Depakote has been linked to a variety of very serious birth defects for children of mothers using this drug for psychological and neurological treatments. Many of the defects result in some sort of unusual change in appearance or physical development. In some cases, this means the development of two or more fingers or toes fusing together. This defect is more commonly known as syndactyly, and can be difficult for children to cope with as they grow older.

If your child was born afflicted with syndactyly after the mother took Depakote during pregnancy, a civil lawsuit may be appropriate in order to seek financial compensation. For additional information regarding your full range of legal options as a concerned parent of a suffering child, contact the Depakote syndactyly attorneys of Williams Hart at 800-761-3187.

Treating Syndactyly

When a child is born with two or more fingers or toes fused into each other, the parents may decide to pursue a course of treatment for this birth defect. However, this treatment can prove expensive and may have several complications that need to be dealt with in the future.

The treatment for syndactyly can include the following options and complications:

  • Surgically dividing the fingers or toes
  • Using skin grafts after dividing the areas
  • Fingers may grow unusually, which can require follow-up surgery
  • Skin grafts may show discoloration over time

These treatments and any follow-ups can prove expensive for the parents of a child with syndactyly. However, financial compensation may be available through a successful civil lawsuit against the maker of Depakote.
