Accutane Settlements

If you had acne in the 90’s, you may be familiar with a drug called Accutane. While the drug had a warning label that noted it is “associated with” chronic bowel problems, the Plaintiff’s argued that Roche (the company which manufactures Accutane) did not accurately warn users of the risk of Chronic Bowel Disorder. Roch was ordered to pay $13 million to the three Plaintiffs.

Three patients claimed they developed a chronic bowel disorder as a result of using this drug: one will have to have his colon surgically removed and the other two will require long-term drug therapy.
