It seems ironic that such a good medication used to treat or even just control epileptic seizures in children and adults has been linked to a birth defect in the lips and palate of children, whose mothers were prescribed with Topamax while pregnant. Of course, there are many degrees of severity and I don’t think all cases were caused by Topamax.
However, it is not surprising that some of the victims have jointly filed ad Topamax lawsuit to seek compensation from the company. I am not sure of the chances of them winning the case, hence I feel that they should look for a reputable and experienced attorney to handle their case, particularly someone who is an expert in personal injury law.
