New Jersey Accutane Injury Attorney – Sugarman Law

Accutane Recall

On June 26, 2009, Hoffmann-La Roche, the manufacturer of Accutane, announced it was recalling the product from the market. The move came after multiple reports throughout the United States of serious gastrointestinal injuries to Accutane users including: ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, and other serious injuries.  This dangerous drug was finally recalled, as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was finding serious potential dangers associated with drug, and Hoffman-LaRoche did not adequately warn prescribing doctors or the people taking this powerful acne medication.

Accutane, also known by the generic name Isotretinoin, was developed by Hoffmann-La Roche Inc. for the treatment of severe cystic (nodular) acne. It has also been sold by other drug companies under the names Roaccutane, Amnesteem, Claravis, and Sotret. Accutane was approved by the FDA in 1982.

New Jersey Accutane Litigation – The Jurisdiction to File Your Accutane Injury Case

Hoffman La-Roche is a New Jersey based company with facilities in Clifton, New Jersey.  For this reason, the company is properly sued for your injuries in New Jersey Courts.  Due to the large number of people claiming Accutane-related injuries, Accutane has been designated a Mass Tort and assigned to a special courtroom and judge for complete handling. Whether you live in New Jersey, California or anywhere in between, your Accutane case should be filed in the New Jersey court.

More than 7,500 lawsuits have been filed in New Jersey on behalf of people who have sustained serious and catastrophic injuries caused by the use of Accutane, including, but not limited to: ulcerative colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, organ damage, and suicide. New Jersey juries have consistently returned verdicts in favor of Accutane victims with one of the recent verdicts for $12,900,000 in damages on behalf of one severely injured Accutane user.
