There are medicines or prescription drugs to treat different illnesses and sometimes they come with side-effects. Topamax is an anti-convulsant used to treat epileptic seizures in children and adults, and is also prescribed to prevent migraine headaches. Studies conducted have shown that Topamax can result in cleft lip or cleft palate – birth defects that occur when the lip or palate fail to completely fuse together. The defect can result in a small, notched lip or in extreme cases, an open groove that extends from the roof of the mouth to the nose.
At O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath, their attorneys understand that your child’s injuries may not be your fault – instead, possibly a dangerous side effect of Topamax. Their expertise and experience, combined with their highly trained staff, make them uniquely well-equipped to handle any Topamax class action lawsuit and even the most complex products liability claims.
