AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and now, can actively provide an expert opinion in view of the recent news on Topamax lawsuits and potential Topamax Recall lawsuit.
Last week a Philadelphia jury awarded $3 million in damages to the family of a 5 year-old who suffered birth defects allegedly caused by the mother's ingestion of Topamax during pregnancy (case no. 111201405, Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas). Topamax, by Johnson & Johnson's Jannsen Pharmaceuticals, is approved by the FDA to treat patients with epilepsy who have certain types of seizures. In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs claim that the child was born with a cleft lip after the mother took Topamax to treat migraine while she was pregnant.
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 Topamax. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations at AttorneyOne.com, adds that the relevant information illustrates that people continue to file Topamax 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.”
According to Bloomberg (11/19/13), a Philadelphia jury ordered J&J's Janssen to pay $11 million in a case alleging that Topamax caused birth defects (case no. 110502251, Court of Common Pleas, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania). In the lawsuit, the plaintiff claimed that her son was born with cleft lip and, according to the jurors, Janssen failed to adequately warn doctors for the plaintiff of the risks of Topamax.
