San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and is now actively providing expert opinion in view of the recent news on Depakote Side Effects lawsuits.
According to court data, on April 29, 2013, several plaintiffs filed a lawsuit in Illinois Southern District Court (case no. 3:2013cv00414) alleging serious birth defects caused by their mothers’ ingestion of Depakote during pregnancy. Depakote (valproate) is a drug, manufactured by Abbott Laboratories, most commonly prescribed for psychiatric conditions like manic depressive disorder (bipolar disorder), epilepsy and to prevent migraine headaches. Plaintiffs claim that they were born with “spina bifida, heart defects and neural tube defects, among other congenital malformations and birth defects” because of their mothers’ ingestion of Depakote.
A new study published on March 6th, 2013, in the international neuroscience journal Acta Neurologica Scandinavica revealed that valproate (Depakote) is linked with birth defects. The results of the study revealed that there were statistically significant associations between valproate exposure and spina bifida, malformations of the heart and great vessels, digits, and skull bones, among others.
Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com updated the website and, now, can actively provide an expert opinion including how to get in contact with legal counsel easily and inexpensively in case of alleged Depakote severe complications. As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations at AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that the alleged threat from Depakote remains. For that reason," he continues, "our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
Another study, published online on January 31st, 2013, in the journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry revealed that prenatal exposure to valproate (Depakote) is linked with neurodevelopmental disorders.
