Williams Hart Investigating Link Between Depakote Use and Birth Defects

Williams Hart, a nationwide mass tort firm is investigating claims made by individuals who took the prescription drug Depakote. This pharmaceutical was commonly prescribed to treat mental health conditions, but recently has been linked to a number of severe and potentially fatal birth defects.

Over the past several years, thousands of people across the country have taken Depakote or one of its generic knock-offs. This medication was approved by the FDA to treat conditions such as bipolar disorder and chronic depression. Recently, however, scientific studies have suggested that there may be a link between Depakote’s active ingredient valproate and increased instances of birth defects.

Women who took or currently take Depakote have a greater risk of bearing children with the following conditions:

  • Impaired cognitive development
  • Anencephaly
  • Spina Bifida
  • Hydranencephaly
  • Aortic stenosis
  • Ventricular septal defect
  • Tetralogy of Fallot
  • Cleft lip and palate
  • Facial dysmorphism
  • Hydrocephaly
  • Craniostenosis
  • Club foot
  • Club hands/fingers
  • Abnormal digits
  • Scoliosis

If your child has been diagnosed with any of these disorders, and you took Depakote before pregnancy or while you were pregnant, you may be able to take legal action. The attorneys of Williams Hart are standing with families who have suffered the side effects of Depakote, and are prepared to help explain their legal options during this difficult time.
