Florida Actos Attorney

 

Diabetes patients who have taken Actos face a heightened risk of developing bladder cancer. Actos (Pioglitazone) is manufactured by Takeda Pharmaceuticals for the treatment of Type II Diabetes, and has been on the market since 1999. Because of Japanese pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly’s involvement in marketing Actos on Takeda’s behalf, lawsuits have been filed against both companies for injuries related to the prescription drug. Possible Actos side effects include:

  • Blood in urine
  • Pain during urination
  • Frequent urination
  • Feeling of a need to urinate without results
  • Bladder Cancer
  • Heart Attack
  • Death
  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • Bone Fractures
  • Lactic Acidosis

Some medical experts believe that Actos is dangerous enough that the FDA should issue a full recall of the medication completely. The danger was great enough to prompt the FDA to mandate a label change for Actos to warn of the bladder cancer risk in August 2011. Unfortunately, this safety label change came 12 years after Actos hit the market, meaning millions of people had already been unknowingly exposed to the potential of bladder cancer. Both France and Germany have already pulled the drug from their markets.

Given the unique nature of these cases and the specialized knowledge involved, you should ask your attorney if he or she has experience handling these types of cases.
 

If you or a loved one developed bladder cancer after taking Actos, you deserve compensation for the physical, financial and emotional tolls of this disease. If taking Actos has resulted in death, then you may be able to file a wrongful death claim. Our experienced and aggressive Actos attorneys will fight to get you compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Future treatment
  • Lost income
  • Physical and emotional suffering
  • Loss of companionship
  • Decreased quality of life

The largest concentration of Actos users to develop bladder cancer had been taking the medication between 2-5 years, while the next largest group had only been taking it for 1-6 months. No matter how long you have been taking Actos, if you have side effects, you should go see your doctor immediately.

We believe that Takeda's failure to adequately warn consumers of the increased risk of bladder cancer and other potential medical problems makes them potentially liable for your injuries and damages. The Florida Actos attorneys at The Trial Professionals want to hold all parties at fault fully accountable for the pain and suffering they have caused. By going after dangerous drug manufactures such as Takeda, you can help ensure that no one else gets hurt due to their future gross negligence, as well as making them pay for their actions. If you are a non-smoker who has contracted bladder cancer after taking Actos, contact a Florida Actos attorney at The Trial Professionals now for a free case evaluation.
