Stevens-Johnson Syndrome Lawsuit

Work with Our Trusted and Committed Trial Lawyers

Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, also known as SJS or Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN), is known to be caused by a number of different drugs, and classes of medications. If the warnings that accompany your medications do not provide the proper cautions about SJS or TEN, and you had Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, you may be able to get compensation through a legal claim.

What is Stevens-Johnson Syndrome?

In most cases, Stevens-Johnson Syndrome is a very serious allergic reaction to drugs that affects your skin and mucous membranes. SJS can lead to Toxic Epidural Necrolysis (TEN) another skin disorder characterized by the blistering, discoloration, and exfoliation of the skin, shedding of hair and nails, hives and burns over the body, and in some instances loss of eyesight and damage to internal organs.

Flu like symptoms usually heralds the start of Stevens-Johnson syndrome. Next a painful red or purplish rash can appear and spread–sometimes rapidly. The rash blisters and may eventually cause your top layers of skin to die and shed. Seek immediate medical attention if you have any question about your condition. Stevens-Johnson syndrome is an emergency condition requiring immediate medical attention and usually hospitalization.

Once your symptoms are under control, you will need to make sure you know the underlying cause of this severe reaction. It is important to also minimize any complications as some can be life threatening.
