$25.16 Million Verdict Against Drug Maker In Accutane Case

Andrew McCarrell won a $25.16 million verdict against Roche Holding AG, a Swiss drug maker, after proving that the company’s acne medicine led to inflammatory bowel disease. This was the second trial of the man’s case. He testified he got sick after taking Accutane in 1995. He has had five surgeries, including one to remove his colon. In addition to this verdict, six former Accutane users have won verdicts worth $56 million. Roche stopped selling Accutane last year. Currently, Roche faces almost 1,000 other cases.
