National Attorney for Steven Johnson Syndrome Cases Helping Clients All Over The United States
*video transcript below
Steven Johnson Syndrome (otherwise known as SJS) is a dangerous skin condition that is often the result of a bad allergic reaction to medicine. This skin disease is extremely painful and, in some cases, has been known to lead to blindness and death. Another form of SJS, known as toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), is ever more painful and dangerous.
Several common prescription and non-prescription drugs have been linked to victims of SJS, including some antibiotics and some non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (like ibuprofen and acetaminophen). If the makers of the drug fail to foresee or warn about the risk of SJS or TEN, the company may be liable for causing pain and suffering. It is important to identify which drug is causing the condition, stop taking the drug in question, and find a personal injury lawyer with experience handling cases for clients with Steven Johnson Syndrome. Call Greg Jones Law today at (855)566-3752 to schedule a free consultation.

What is Steven Johnson Syndrome?
The early warning signs of SJS include fevers and flu-like symptoms, along with painful skin irritation or rashes. Patients may also experience a sore throat, nausea, headache, fatigue, cough, and aching eyes. As the disease progresses, patients may experience blisters on their skin, eyes, mouth, and throat. Blood vessel irritation can cause swelling, blood infections, and, eventually, skin shedding. If treated in a hospital, patients with Steven Johnson Syndrome are often put in the burn and intensive care units. 10% of SJS patients go blind. If the disease comes to affect the patient’s lungs, it may cause breathing issues. SJS kills an estimated 15% of those who suffer from it.
There is no cure, but pain can be managed, and care can be provided. It is important to identify the drug that is causing SJS and stop taking it without delay. Then, with the right medical care, the patient suffering from SJS can get some relief from pain and the dangerous symptoms of the disease.

Many brand name and off-brand drugs have been investigated for possible links to SJS, including:
- Children’s Advil
- Children’s Tylenol
- Children’s Motrin
- Various NSAIDs, sulfonamides, anticonvulsants, and antimalarial drugs.
Latest News & Insights
Can a Lawyer Help?
If a pharmaceutical company failed to properly warn of the risk of SJS or TEN for users of their medication, they could be held accountable for the pain and suffering caused via a product liability claim. However, these companies are part of one of the most financially powerful industries globally and have legal teams dedicated to protecting their interests.
If you or a loved one has contracted Steven Johnson Syndrome or Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis because of using over-the-counter or prescription medications, you could have legal options. If the makers of the drug did not responsibly share the risks of their product, they might be liable. A drug injury lawyer with experience in SJS and TEN cases can review your claim and could help you recover compensation for expensive medical bills and pain and suffering caused.
Know Your Rights
Steven Johnson Syndrome may be rare, but it is an incredibly painful disease. While there is currently no known cure, medical care can help those with SJS live more comfortably. However, that medical attention can be very expensive, and if you don’t have the right insurance, you could be paying for much of it yourself. If the pharmaceutical manufacturers of the drug that caused the SJS did not properly warn you of the risks and side effects, they could be held liable. Legal representation may be able to help you recover compensation and help with medical bills and other comforts of living with SJS.
Greg Jones Law works with a network of other law firms throughout the United States to provide legal help to victims of SJS and TEN. If you believe you have SJS, the first things you must do are stop taking the meds that caused it and talk to your doctor. With that done, you should then contact a drug injury lawyer. Greg Jones Law can review your claim and help explain your legal options. Call Greg Jones Law today at (855)566-3752 to schedule a free consultation.
