Accutane Loss of Pregnancy – Fetal Birth Defect Lawsuit


Accutane Loss of Pregnancy – Fetal Birth Defect LawsuitAccutane contains the active ingredient Isotretinoin. According to numerous conducted studies the use of  Isotretinoin can result in severe side effects including the loss of a fetus by pregnant woman.  As reported by The Guide to Best Practices in the Prescription of Accutane, woman who are pregnant should not use the drug. More so, practicing medical doctors should provide for routine pregnancy tests and monitored birth control medication for women who wish to use the drug before it is prescribed. The failure to provide for proper pregnancy testing for women who are prescribed the acne medication can establish a basis for medical malpractice if the fetus is lost. Legal Assistance: Our law firm is dedicated to providing legal representation for individuals who have suffered harm due to the negligent or wrongful actions of at fault parties including practicing physicians who’s act of medical negligence result in significant harm. FDA Guidelines for the Use of Accutane by Females: The United States Food and Drug Administration has labeled medications with containing the active ingredient Isotretinoin a contraindication in females of childbearing potential unless the patients meets pre-qualification and conditions during the use of the drug.

MILLIONS RECOVERED FOR OUR CLIENTS

DTLA Client Review

“I honestly cannot say enough good things about Farid. I never even truly became his client, as in I never paid him a single cent, and he helped me get my case settled with my current lawyer. I had accidentally contacted Farid’s firm in an attempt to contact my lawyer, who had ignored me for months. Farid contacted me himself within minutes of me talking to a live representative of theirs online (and this was really late at night, too).”
