Depakote Hydranencephaly Lawyers

Hydranencephaly is a rare and often fatal condition that affects the brain of a developing fetus. For those with this condition, fluid builds up in the cranium in place of brain matter. The side effects are extremely serious, but hydranencephaly can go undetected for weeks or months. The causes are unclear, but the mental health drug Depakote has been shown to increase the likelihood of this devastating birth defect.

If you took Depakote and gave birth to a child who developed hydranencephaly, it’s important that you stand up for your family‚Äôs legal rights. Speaking with a Depakote hydranencephaly lawyer is the first step in seeking justice. Tell us about your case by calling the law office of Williams Hart at 800-761-3187 today.

Symptoms of Hydranencephaly

It may not be immediately clear when a child is born with hydranencephaly. Early symptoms usually appear within weeks or months of birth, and can include:

  • Irritability
  • Impaired hearing and vision
  • Impaired muscular control
  • Seizures

Sadly, hydranencephaly almost always results in death. The damage to the brain is usually extensive, and most hydranencephalic infants die within their first two years of life. Some patients can live years with the disorder, but their quality of life is often impaired by learning problems and physical disabilities.
