Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) October 20, 2011
The law office of Glen J. Lerner & Associates is assisting personal injury victims with many dangerous drug claims, including consumers who have suffered side effects from using Accutane.
Accutane (Isotretinoin) is a drug created by Hoffmann-La Roche to treat mild to severe acne in adults. Hoffmann-La Roche has included warnings that the medication has caused severe side effects in some cases, most commonly inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, but also depression and severe birth defects.
Some patients have developed inflammatory bowel diseases to such an extreme, that they have had sections of their intestines surgically removed. This was discussed in the case of Andrew McCarrell v. Hoffman-La Roche Inc., et al., No. ATL-L-1951-03 MT, New Jersey Superior Court (Atlantic County), where a jury ordered the company to pay over $25 million to a single plaintiff due to their negligence.
