Patients who used the diabetes drug Actos and were diagnosed with bladder cancer may be eligible to file a lawsuit and receive a settlement for their injuries. Speaking with an attorney is the first step to filing a lawsuit and finding out whether you may be eligible for an Actos settlement.
The first Actos bladder cancer lawsuit was filed in August 2011 by a Pennsylvania woman who was diagnosed with the disease after being treated with Actos for over a decade. Studies have shown that patients who use Actos for more than one year are more likely to develop bladder cancer than the general population.
Attorneys involved in similar cases have predicted that as many as 10,000 Actos lawsuits may eventually be filed by patients who have taken the drug. At least 54 lawsuits regarding bladder cancer have already been filed by individual Actos users, as well as one class action lawsuit.
If you or a loved one used Actos and were diagnosed with bladder cancer, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the manufacturers of the drug and receive a settlement.
