A team of class action attorneys and personal injury birth defect lawyers has launched an investigation into various anticonvulsant drugs, anti-seizure drugs or antiepileptic (AED) drugs that may be associated with an increased risk of certain birth defects, including cleft lip and/or cleft palate birth defects.
Cleft palate and cleft lip birth defect injury lawsuit claims potentially being investigated include claims by women and mothers who were treated with anticonvulsant drugs, anti-seizure drugs or antiepileptic (AED) drugs while pregnant and during pregnancy and gave birth to children born with birth defects including oral cleft birth defects such as cleft lip or cleft palate.
Recent FDA reports suggest an increased risk for the development of cleft lip and/or cleft palate (oral clefts) in infants born to women treated with certain anticonvulsant drugs, anti-seizure drugs or antiepileptic (AED) drugs during their first trimester of pregnancy.
Cleft lip or cleft palate birth defect injuries may affect the formation and visual appearance of the upper lip or roof of the mouth of a child or baby and can lead to issues with the child’s feeding or eating, talking and speech issues and ear infections. Children and babies born with cleft lip or cleft palate also may require revision surgery to correct and treat the birth defect.
If you or someone you love took an anticonvulsant drug, anti-seizure medication or antiepileptic (AED) medicine while pregnant or during pregnancy and gave birth to a child born with a birth defect, such as a cleft lip and/or cleft palate, you may be entitled to compensation.
