Three years ago, my cousin was 2 months pregnant. She went to her doctor for the regular check up for her condition. my cousin is unique because she has been fighting her epileptic seizures attacks ever since. Because of her condition, she was advised to take Topamax to prevent the attacks. Since it was prescribed to her, she used the drug.

It was near her date of delivery, she was advised to have a 3d image view of her baby. This kind of visual is an upgrade version of the ultrasound that is widely offered by many hospitals. Happy to see the baby's image, my cousin decided to have it recorded. Upon viewing, my cousin saw some unwanted features in her baby. She found out that her baby has a cleft palate. Immediately, she consulted another doctor. She was asked if she was using topamax drug because this drug has some serious side effects when the person taking it is a pregnant. Immediately, my cousin called some lawyer friends asked for legal advice. She wanted to prepare a Topamax lawsuit because there was injustice done to her and to her baby. The legal team immediately acted on the case. The judge gave the verdict of the case favoring my cousin. It was a difficult situation knowing that your baby has a birth defect because of the wrong information of the medicine that you were advised to take. Thanks to the right legal counsels who handled the case. To all topamax victims, visit O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath – Personal Injury Lawyers – 808 West Avenue, Austin, TX. 78701 – 512-494-9949 now.
