Accutane Legal Funding
If you were prescribed with Accutane prior to 2009, you may be eligible for filing an Accutane lawsuit if you develop any of the diseases or medical conditions associated with taking the drug. Children who were born with birth defects because their mothers were prescribed with Accutane during pregnancy may also have a personal injury claim.
Accutane is the brand name for isotretinoin, a drug that was originally developed as a form of chemotherapy, but was observed to be a good treatment protocol for severe acne. Developed by Roche Pharmaceuticals, it hasn’t until around 1992, ten years after the drug was introduced into the market, that serious side effects began to be associated with the drug. Chief among these side-effects are birth defects and inflammatory bowel disorders such as Cronh’s disease or ulcerative colitis. It is also associated with depression and suicide.To date, the manufacturer has been besieged with personal injury claims in excess of 7,000. This is a low figure considering that approximately 16 million people have been prescribed with Accutane before it was recalled from the US market in 2009. More cases are pending. Roche Pharmaceuticals has paid out $53 million to patients as of 2012, the majority of which went to three plaintiffs.
