San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 07, 2014

AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and they are now actively providing expert opinion, taking into consideration the recent news on Depakote Lawsuit.

According to court documents, on December 16, 2013 a US Magistrate Judge ordered Abbott to produce “long overdue” documents in Depakote lawsuits alleging birth defects (US District Court for the Southern District of Illinois, case no. 13-cv-324-SCW, and 13-cv-326-SCW). 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.

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. The 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.

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 cases of severe complications, allegedly from Depakote. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations at AttorneyOne.com, adds that the relevant information illustrates that people continue to file Depakote lawsuits. For that reason," he continues, "our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”

As The Wall Street Journal published on August 22, 2013 Dr. Reddy's launched a generic version of Depakote ER with a warning for life-threatening adverse reactions. The serious adverse reactions include hepatotoxicity (and fatalities), fetal risk, and pancreatitis among others.
