Topamax Claims

Topamax lawsuits may be “what’s next?” in terms of significant mass tort cases. The gist of the allegations in the Topamax lawsuits are that Ortho-McNeil, which – surprise – is owned by Johnson & Johnson should have (1) never put Topamax on the market because of the risk of birth injuries in children whose moms were on Topamax, and (2) issued a recall for Topamax as the evidence accumulated that Topamax was causing cleft lip/cleft palate birth injuries. Even if you don’t think there should have been a recall, it is hard to argue that the risks of these injuries were adequately laid out for potential mothers and their doctors.
