Actos Lawsuit SETTLEMENT
Actos was once the most popular medication available to treat type-2 diabetes. However, health experts have found that using the drug for long periods of time may cause as much as an 83 percent increase in the risk of developing bladder cancer. Regulators have banned Actos in France and Germany; and the FDA has added strict warnings in the United States.
In recent years, more than 8,000 patients diagnosed with bladder cancer filed lawsuits against the maker of the drug, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, for failing to warn of the risks. Now, the company has agreed to pay as much as $2.4 billion to settle these claims.
Lawyers are helping complete this settlement, as well as filing new claims for those who have not yet received compensation. They can discuss your case at no cost to see if it qualifies and explain the litigation process. The time to file an Actos lawsuit is limited however by a statute of limitations, so it is important to get help soon.
