Even though many people have experienced similar problems, the effect on each person’s life has been very personal and goes beyond any immediate financial loss. Given the increasing number of people who have had their lives changed after suffering from bowel problems including inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis after using Accutane, attorneys and courts have looked to multidistrict litigation (MDL) to more efficiently handle the growing number of consumers coming forward making claims rather than forming an Accutane class action. Multi-district litigation is different from a class action in that each individual is able to bring their own claim rather than having one person who sues on behalf of all people making claims.
Patients and families nationwide have looked at filing an Accutane lawsuit based on the serious side effects of this acne medication. The Accutane lawsuits claim that the manufacturer was negligent in several ways including:
- marketing and selling Accutane as safe and effective for use in the treatment of acne
- failing to adequately warn consumers of unreasonable and dangerous side effects some of which are permanent
- failing to conduct adequate pre-clinical testing and post-marketing studies to determine the safety and side effects of Accutane
- failing to use ordinary care in designing, testing and manufacturing Accutane
- failing to exercise due care when advertising and promoting Accutane.
