The Food and Drug Administration has the responsibility to make sure that all medications are safe for consumers to use, but occasionally issues arise with warning labels or side effects of prescriptions that cause injury or illness to patients.
Recently, prescription drugs have faced legal issues such as mislabeling potential dangers including possible side effects, symptoms from withdrawal, issues with long term use, and complications that could arise when mixing with other medication.
One example is this is the type 2 diabetes medication, Actos, that has recently been linked to the development of bladder cancer when used for an extended period of time. Actos is made by Japan’s largest drugmaker, Takeda Pharmaceuticals and has been recalled in France and Germany. At this time, the lawsuits against Actos have been centralized in Louisiana.
If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of using Actos, you need experienced representation on your side that may be able to help you fight for the justice you deserve. Contact the Actos lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-641-9810.
