If you or anyone you know has been injured by the prescription drug Depakote, you may have grounds to bring a Depakote lawsuit. Many pregnant women who took Depakote suffered serious birth defects as a result of taking the drug. The FDA later warned about serious birth injuries, including spina bifida and neural tube defects.
In a Depakote lawsuit, you would sue the manufacturer of the drug for failing to warn prescribing physicians of the dangers. The lawsuit would claim that the manufacturer knew, or should have known, that Depakote could cause such serious side effects.
If the lawyers at the Drug Injury Legal Group review your case and decide to file a Depakote lawsuit on your behalf, it would either be filed in state or federal court depending on a number of factors. If you would like a quick and free case evaluation performed by one of the Drug Injury Legal Group attorneys in order to decide if a Depakote lawsuit could potentially result in compensation for the injuries that were suffered as a result of your Depakote use, please contact us today.
