Topamax is a leading brand that is known to cure migraine and seizures. While more and more users found its effectiveness in bringing relief to the said illnesses, one side effect was discovered– Topamax can be a cause for cleft palate or cleft palate, a deformity that usually in born. Cleft palate is an opening in the lip and/or palate (roof of the mouth) that is caused by incomplete development during early fetal formation. It is one of the most common deformities in children, with 1 to 2 out of 1,000 American kids having this deformity. It is more common among Asian and Latino children.
If it is proven that Topamax has indeed been the main cause for a child’s cleft palate, they could file a Topamax lawsuit with the help of trained lawyers who specialize in this field. The victim is entitled to a disability claim which would be enough for an operation and the medical expenses and the medical expenses that entails with it.
