Depakote Cleft Lip and Palate Attorneys

Cleft lip and cleft palate are among the most common kinds of birth defects. The palate is the top part of the mouth, while the cleft separates the lip or palate into two parts. The cleft occurs when these parts of the mouth fail to come together while a child is in the womb. At least 1 in 700 children worldwide is born with a cleft lip, cleft palate, or both. Mothers who took the prescription drug Depakote have a higher risk of bearing a child with a cleft lip and palate.

If you took Depakote and your child was born with symptoms of cleft lip and palate, contact a Depakote cleft lip and palate attorney today. Share your story with the law offices of Williams Hart at 800-761-3187 to learn more about your legal options.

Cleft Lip and Palate Treatment

Children born with cleft lip and palate often live normal lives, aside from medical procedures to correct or control the problem. The exact medical treatment varies based on the extent of the cleft. Treatment often begins while a child is still an infant and continues through adolescence and even into adulthood. Some of the medical interventions your doctor may recommend include:

  • Surgeries to close the cleft
  • Special dental treatments
  • Speech therapy

Unfortunately, the costs of treating this birth defect often strain a family’s budget. If Depakote was responsible for your child’s development of cleft lip and palate, filing a lawsuit could help you cover the costs of medical care.
