alleging their children suffered birth defects after the mothers took Depakote during the first trimester of pregnancy
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 19, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Nathanael Rymsza. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on August 3rd, 2012, lead plaintiff Nathanael Rymsza and 6 others filed a Depakote Lawsuit in St. Clair County Circuit Court (case no. 12-L-403) alleging their children suffered birth defects after the mothers took Depakote during the first trimester of pregnancy. Depakote is a drug, manufactured by Abbott Laboratories, most commonly prescribed for psychiatric conditions like manic depressive disorder (bipolar disorder) and to prevent migraine headaches. Because of their mothers' ingestion of Depakote, plaintiffs claim that their children have suffered from various birth defects, including spina bifida, heart defects, cleft palate, cleft lip, limb and digital deformities, mental developmental delays, genitourinary malformations and facial dysmorphism.
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, can provide helpful advice and simple solutions including how to get in contact with legal counsel so that, in case of severe adverse events from Depakote, someone can easily and inexpensively deal with it. As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that alleged threat from Depakote remains. For that reason, our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
In June 2011, the US FDA informed that study results indicated that children born to mothers who took valproate sodium or related products (including Depakote) throughout their pregnancy tend to score lower on IQ and other cognitive tests than children born to mothers who took other anti-seizure medications during pregnancy.
