Our Many Years Of Experience Helps Your Drug Injury Case

 

Experienced drug injury lawyer

Attorney Tom Lamb

We have been representing patients and their families in drug injury lawsuits for the past fifteen years and it is our main practice area.

Drug injury legal compensation cases usually involve personal injury claims or wrongful death claims filed on behalf of people who unfortunately experienced serious side effects or an adverse drug reaction while using a prescription medication.

Some unsafe drugs have been the subject of a safety alert or an FDA drug recall, while other drugs remain on the market with a so-called ” black-box” warning.

If you, relatives, or friends need legal advice or legal representation for a personal injury lawsuit or a wrongful death lawsuit involving a drug side effect, the Law Offices of Thomas J. Lamb is here to help.

We encourage you to submit a Drug Injury Law Case Review — it is free, confidential, and there is no obligation.  Or, if you prefer, call our toll-free number, (800) 426-9535, to speak directly to attorney Tom Lamb about a possible drug injury case.  Either way, you will get Mr. Lamb’s impressions — not an intake person, a paralegal, nor some other lawyer — about your case based on his many years of experience.

While based in Wilmington, North Carolina, we have successfully handled drug injury lawsuits for people all over the United States.

It is important to note that we do not put our clients into large class actions. Rather we favor an individual lawsuit approach, which allows us to give personal attention to each of our clients, from start to finish.

Significantly Increased Risk Of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) In Children Whose Mothers Used Depacon / Depakene / Depakote During Their Pregnancy

August 2014 Label Change By AbbVie Inc. (formerly Abbott) For These Valproate Migraine, Epilepsy/Seizure, And Bipolar Medications Was Done Rather Quietly

SUMMARY: In August 2014 the Prescribing Information, or drug labels, for Depakote, Depakote CP, and Depakote ER (divalproex sodium), Depacon (valproate sodium), and Depakene (valproic acid) were updated by the drug company AbbVie Inc. (formerly Abbott) to add a warning about the potential risk for autism spectrum disorders (ASD).

In the label approved by the FDA on August 20, 2014 for Depakote (accessed 9/25/14), this new warning about autism spectrum disorders can be found at Section 8.1 Pregnancy.

The medical study referenced in this new “valproate drugs used during pregnancy – risk of autism spectrum disorders” warning seems to be the subject of this article, “Prenatal Valproate Exposure and Risk of Autism Spectrum Disorders and Childhood Autism”, which was published by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) in April 2013.
