As a Fort Worth Accutane Inflammatory bowel disease attorney, I am writing about the upcoming trial in New Jersey state court. These trials have been anticipated for a long time and will inject Hollywood into the proceedings, as one of the plaintiffs is a film actor.
Trial will began this week in New Jersey state court, for three plaintiffs who allege that they suffered severe bowel disease from Accutane.
Roche faces 3,000 Accutane bowel lawsuits, which all involve allegations that the drug maker failed to adequately warn users about the potential risk of injury associated with the acne medication. The plaintiffs claim there is an increased risk of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) from Accutane (isotretinoin), which could lead to ulcerative colitis, and Crohn’s disease.
Roche has lost all six Accutane trials that have previously reached a jury.
The number of Accutane complaints filed in New Jersey continues to increase as former users discover that there may be a connection between their bowel problems and Accutane.
The next Accutane trial is scheduled in May 2011, and involves a case filed by Kamie Kendall. The earlier verdict was reversed on appeal because Roche was denied introducing evidence about the number of individuals who have used the acne medication over the years.
