The diabetes drug, Actos (pioglitazone), is one of the top selling drugs in the U.S. due to its ability to effectively treat individuals suffering from Type 2 diabetes. However, in recent news, Actos is becoming quite popular, due to the multiple class action lawsuits being filed on behalf of individuals who were diagnosed with bladder cancer after taking the prescription drug.
The manufacturer of Actos, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, knew that taking the drug left a possible risk of patients being diagnosed with bladder cancer, however, failed to warn individuals of the defective and dangerous nature of the drug. Therefore, the pharmaceutical company may face liability for lawsuits filed from those injured.
We are accepting Actos cases for individuals who have been diagnosed with bladder cancer while taking Actos or within five years of their Actos usage.
Filing An Actos Class Action Lawsuit
At the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. our dangerous drug lawyers represent patients diagnosed with bladder cancer or suffering from severe injury or harm after taking Actos. For this type of lawsuit, a class action lawsuit may be filed. A class action lawsuit is when a large number of individualized claims are represented by one lawsuit. Filing this type of lawsuit may be beneficial in some scenarios because often times due to the large number of claims within the lawsuit, the efficiency of the legal process can increase, as well as costs of litigation could become lower.
However, class action lawsuits can be detrimental in one’s case, and filing an individual claim may be more beneficial to a victim. It becomes common with class action lawsuits that many class members are forced into a lower settlement, due to the fact that they are “grouped” in with everyone else, and their specific injuries may not stand out in the crowd.
