5 Common Digit Abnormalities

Millions of Americans have been prescribed Depakote or a derivative of Depakote for a variety of medical conditions, including bipolar disorder, migraine headaches, and seizures. Unfortunately, recent studies have linked this drug to serious birth defects in babies born to women who took Depakote while they were pregnant. One of these defects is commonly referred to as “abnormal digits,” in which a child’s fingers or toes have some abnormality. Abnormal digits are fortunately one of the less serious birth defects caused by Depakote, but they can still have a dramatic impact on a child’s well-being and development.

If your child was born with abnormal digits and you took Depakote while you were pregnant, contact a knowledgeable Depakote lawsuit attorney of Williams Hart at 800-761-3187 for an evaluation of your case.

Types of Abnormal Digits

While finger and toe abnormalities are not life-threatening defects, they can still have a huge impact on a child’s self-esteem and ability to socialize and perform essential tasks and activities. The following five abnormalities are common in children who were born to women who took Depakote while pregnant:

  1. Missing digits
  2. Fused digits
  3. Weak or nonfunctional digits
  4. Extra digits
  5. Stunted digits

Treatment is possible for some of these defects, but treatment options can be expensive, painful, and stressful for both the affected child and his or her family. Therefore, if your child was born with abnormal digits and you believe Depakote is responsible, you should seek financial compensation.
