NH woman's loss of $21M judgement on appeal highlights need for change

Karen Bartlett had no idea what hit her when a Stevens Johnson Syndrome rash turned into a nightmarish health scare that left her disfigured and nearly blind from SJS. The latter is a rare, but nonetheless debilitating reaction to medication akin to suffering serious burns. The New Hampshire woman won a $21 million judgement that was later set aside on appeal because Bartlett has been prescribed a generic version of Clinoril.
