The condition often starts with vague symptoms of fever, sore throat, headache, joint pains, and gastroenteritis. These symptoms can last from 1 to 14 days. A widespread red rash then forms, which often (but not always) has typical spots known as “target” lesions. These are concentric rings of different shades of red, which may blister in the center, and they are often clearly seen on the palms. Similar blistering lesions then form in the mucous membranes such as the mouth, the airway, the gastrointestinal tract, the conjunctivae of the eye and the genital tract.
- Rash, blisters, or red splotches on skin
- Persistent fever
- Blisters in mouth, eyes, ears, nose, and genital area
- Swelling of eyelids and red eyes
- Flu-like symptoms
- Recent history of having taken a prescription or over-the-counter medication
Can I File A Stevens-Johnson Syndrome Lawsuit?
We can help you file a Stevens-Johnson syndrome lawsuit if you’ve been diagnosed with SJS or TENS after taking a medication which did not warn about the risk of developing SJS or TENS on the label at the time you purchased the medication.
California law holds drug manufacturers financially liable for injuries their drugs cause when they fail to warn about the risk of those injuries. Companies are responsible for injuries their drugs cause when:
- They manufacture, distribute or sell a drug
- The drug has potential risks that are known or knowable considering the generally accepted scientific and medical knowledge at the time of manufacture, distribution or sale
- The potential risks pose a substantial danger when the drug is used in an intended or reasonably foreseeable manner
- Ordinary consumers won’t recognize the potential risks
- The company fails to adequately warn about the potential risks
- A consumer is harmed
- The lack of warning is a substantial factor in causing the consumer to be harmed
