- Accutane Believed to Cause Crohn’s Disease
Acne is a problem that has affected millions of people. Despite a common and inaccurate belief that acne simply disappears with time, the fact is that acne is a serious skin condition that can be extremely painful and leave behind a lifetime of scarring. In response to the need by people to fight their serious cases of acne, Hoffman-LaRoche obtained approval from the FDA to market, sell and distribute a drug called Accutane in 1982. Unfortunately for many people, reports of Accutane side effects soon began to surface, creating the need for help from Accutane side effects lawyers. Below are brief descriptions of two Accutane side effects – Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis.

Accutane Side Effect – Crohn’s Disease
Crohn’s Disease is a serious condition in which the patient’s intestinal wall comes under attack. Specifically, ulcers form inside the intestinal wall, and over time these ulcers spread. In addition to spreading, these ulcers release toxins inside the intestinal tract and can ultimately lead to permanent damage to the wall of the bowels. Patients tend to experience pain, discomfort, regular if not chronic diarrhea and other symptoms that make daily life miserable and that can lead to permanent disability.
Accutane Side Effect – Ulcerative Colitis
Another common Accutane side effect is a condition known as ulcerative colitis. Ulcerative colitis is somewhat similar to Crohn’s Disease, although its location is limited to the wall of the large intestine. When someone suffers from ulcerative colitis, the patient will experience intense pain because of the inflammation that occurs inside the large intestine. Those who suffer from the long-term effects of ulcerative colitis may be enforced to endure permanent damage to the intestinal wall and to the rectum.
Ultimately, Accutane was recalled in 2009 after coming under intense scrutiny from the FDA.

Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
Sophia H is a pleasure to work with! Thanks for all you do.
Definitely recommend! Awesome
A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
