Three Florida plaintiffs took on pharmaceutical giant, Hoffman-La Roche, for bowel injuries suffered as a result of their use of the drug Accutane. Each of the plaintiffs alleged that they contracted ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease as a result of using the acne medicine.
The injured plaintiffs alleged that the drug was a defective product in that the manufacturer failed to adequately warn of the possibility of severe bowel injuries as a side effect of the medication. The jury agreed with the plaintiffs and awarded them $13,000,000.00.
