AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Though Accutane was taken off the market in 2009, plaintiffs continue to file lawsuits against Hoffman – La Roche, alleging they suffer serious injury due to the use of Accutane. The United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida continues to receive lawsuits transferred to the Multidistrict Litigation against Accutane.

The most current cases include an Arizona man who developed serious and severe gastrointestinal injuries after using Accutane in 1993-1994 for three to six months. His complain states that, “[t]he unreasonably dangerous side effects of the medication were not known to Plaintiff John Patrick Carter, who relied on the duty of the Defendants [manufacturer Hoffman-La Roche]…to manufacture a medication safe for public use or to properly warn the consumers of the side effects of taking the mediation.” His lawsuit alleges negligence, liability, breach of warranties, and fraud, and is seeking compensatory and punitive damages.

The most common complaints against Accutane include that the drug causes inflammatory bowel disease, like ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s Disease.
