Accutane Linked to Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s, IBS, IBD. Accutane Lawyers. How to File an Accutane Lawsuit

While Accutane, a synthetic form of Vitamin A, frequently prescribed to treat acne disease, is highly effective, it’s also linked to severe side effects and even death — these are the reasons that made many injured think of contacting an Accutane lawyer to protect their legal rights. Almost every Accutane lawsuit against its manufacturer is based on several frequent side effects ranging from light to health-threatening, which include:

  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Suicidal tendencies
  • Birth defects
  • Miscarriages
  • Heart attacks
  • Strokes
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Liver damage
  • Vision problems

Many suffering from the above mentioned Accutane problems and complications decided to discuss their cases with an Accutane lawyer and eventually filed Accutane lawsuits against Hoffman La Roche, which they say failed to warn them about health problems they may face when taking these drugs. Moreover, not only Hoffman La Roche was accused of violating their clients’ legal rights. Numerous Accutane cases were filed against health care providers and even ordinary doctors, because people considered them responsible for their health problems, caused by taking Accutane.

Recently, three plaintiffs who had filed an Accutane lawsuit against Roche managed to win their cases and got financial compensations. They claimed that taking Accutane led to serious Inflammatory Bowel Disease. They proved that IBD affected negatively their lifestyle as well as their state of health and that they have suffered greatly from its consequences. In fact, IBD, which may include Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease, is really life-threatening and requires prolonged medical treatment.

The main symptoms of this disease are: abdominal pain and spasms, diarrhea, intestinal and rectal bleeding, weight loss, fever, etc. Ulcerative colitis basically causes large intestine’s inflammation and even ulcers. Crohn’s disease typically injures small intestine, but may be found in stomach, colon and mouth as well.
