Causes of Stevens-Johnson Syndrome
SJS is a dermatological emergency and can result from an infection or a medication allergy, though it is most often the latter. SJS, along with its more severe form, Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN), have been linked to several different anti-gout medications, penicillin, and anticonvulsants. In some cases, SJS has been known to develop following physical stimuli such as exposure to ultraviolet light or radiation therapy. According to a study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology in 2008, popular anti-drug medication Allopurinol was the most common cause of SJS throughout Europe and Israel and was linked to 18 percent of all SJS and TEN cases.
The following medications have all been associated with SJS:
- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS)
- Sulfonamides and penicillins
If you developed SJS or TEN after being given a certain type of medication, our firm can represent your interests and fight to recover maximum compensation on your behalf. Depending on the circumstances, you may have grounds to file a legal claim against the hospital, your doctor, the drug manufacturer, or a combination of all three. Whatever the case may be, our firm is prepared to stand by your side and pursue every available opportunity to help you secure the financial recovery you deserve.

I can’t thank David Rash enough for everything he has done for me! Not only did he go out of his way to make sure I got everything I deserved, David was very caring and polite. He went out of his way to keep me informed and just to check in on my health. He’s a good guy and very very good at what he does! A+! If you want someone that actually cares, go with Rash Mueller. Thanks again David.- Jordan
When I say..you’ve reached the right people..ur lucky to be in contact with them!! Although they couldn’t help me with my case..Leading up to the decision lori kept in contact, showed empathy, was straight forward with all detail! Lori told me more than my own drs or the hospital did..I have closure because of HER! So I still won! My case was complicated to move forward due to other reasons..but she ain’t never let me down when speaking to her! She speaks to you as if she knew you forever! I appreciate this firm so much because before they say NO..they try, the listen and the put work in!!! Thank you guys so much for everything!- Adrian B.
From the first phone conversation with Lori, to the first time meeting with David and Jeff, all the way through and to the conclusion of my case, I felt as if these people truly cared about what happened to me. They didn’t just see a potential “case”. They were upset with my situation. They wanted to help. Through the years that this whole process takes, I have gotten to know them a bit better, and they have gotten to know me. I now consider them less “my legal team”, and more a part of my extended family, whether they realize it, or like it, or not. I so appreciate their kindness, genuine compassion, and “got my back” attitude. I hope you are never in a situation to need these folks, but if you ever are, I highly recommend talking to them and seeing if it’s a right fit for all.- Joel F.
