Accutane Lawyer Washington, DC

Accutane Lawyer Washington, DCIf you have suffered any of the serious and oftentimes debilitating side effects of taking Accutane, it may be in your best interest to discuss your situation with a good Accutane lawyer in Washington, DC. They may be able to help you seek compensation for any injuries or illnesses that Accutane may have caused. 

Accutane (generic, isotretinoin) was originally intended as chemotherapy for brain, pancreatic, and other forms of cancer. In 1982 it was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration as a treatment for acne. Accutane was used by over 13 million patients from 1982 to 2009 when Roche USA pulled Accutane off the market for “business reasons”. One of these reasons is likely because of declining sales. Isotretinoin is now available in multiple brand and generic versions, and only 5% of sales of these come from the brand name Accutane.

Another big reason that Roche USA stopped manufacturing Accutane, that they are not as quick to tout as a reason for stopping their manufacture of it, is because of the many, many personal injury lawsuits that they have been named as the defendant in. 

If you too have been injured or become ill as the result of taking Accutane, an Accutane lawyer that is licensed to protect Accutane victims in Washington, DC may be able to help you file a personal injury lawsuit to get you compensation for expenses related to your illness or injury as well as for your pain and suffering.

While Accutane is very effective at treating severe, cystic acne it has been linked to a long list of serious medical problems in thousands of patients who had taken the drug. 

Some of the more common of the serious side effects of Accutane include:

Inflammatory Bowel Disease

  • Ulcerative colitis 
  • Crohn’s disease

Mental Health Problem

  • Depression
  • Psychosis
  • Suicide

Birth Problems and Defects

  • Miscarriage
  • Central nervous system malformations
  • Cleft palate
  • Cognitive and intellectual disabilities
  • Ear abnormalities
  • Eye abnormalities
  • Facial dysmorphism
  • Heart defects
  • Hydrocephaly

If you or a loved one have suffered from the severe side effects of Accutane a compassionate and experienced Accutane lawyer in Washington, DC may be able to help you to feel less alone in this difficult time, along with trying to protect your and your family’s financial future.

More common and much less harmful yet unpleasant, side effects of taking Accutane include:

  • Back pain
  • Changes in fingernails and/or toenails 
  • Cracked and/or peeling skin 
  • Cracks in the corners of the mouth/lips
  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Dry skin, eyes, nose, mouth, and/or lips
  • Itching
  • Inflammation of the whites of the eyes
  • Joint pain
  • Nervousness
  • Nosebleeds

These more common side effects that patients were sufficiently warned about are not likely to merit the need for a Washington, DC Accutane lawyer that can try to hold Roche USA accountable for its failure to warn patients about the harmful side effects of Accutane.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
