A man from Houma has filed a lawsuit claiming that his diabetes medication caused him to develop bladder cancer.
The man is now seeking compensation from the drug maker, Takeda Pharmaceuticals after he contracted bladder cancer from the Type II diabetes medication, Actos.
The lawsuit stated that the man used Actos for over a year without knowing the possible complications that could occur from doing so. The man is seeking damages for what he described as severe and permanent injuries.
Actos has been on the shelves since 1999, but in Summer 2011, the increased risk of bladder cancer was discovered and a warning was added to the drug’s label and web site.
If you have been diagnosed with bladder cancer as a result of using Actos, you need representation on your side. Contact the Actos bladder cancer lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-641-9810 today in order to discuss your legal options.
