If you or someone you love has used Accutane® as a treatment for acne and have been injured due to the use of this drug, you may be entitled to substantial financial compensation through an ongoing class action lawsuit against the makers of Accutane.
A consumer class action is a lawsuit brought by a few people on behalf of a larger group of individuals, who have all been damaged by the same actions or conduct of the defendant. These cases often involve thousands of people and are filed to remedy various wrongs, including defective products, deceptive and unfair business practices, and unfair contracts. Class action lawsuits can be very effective when it is impractical or too expensive for each individual to hire an attorney to file a lawsuit. The class action procedure allows larger groups of consumers to bring these claims against large corporations that possess much greater legal and financial resources.
