First Actos Lawsuit Heads to Court

Posted on February 26th, 2013 No Comments

Actos, the popular diabetes medication which was first released in the United States in the late 1990s, has become the subject of many different lawsuits in recent years, with the first trial relating to the drug’s side effects about to begin in California. The plaintiff, Jack Cooper, who was diagnosed with bladder cancer is 2011, has sued the manufacturers of Actos, Takeda Pharmaceutical Company, for damages sustained as a result of his use of the medication.

According to some sources, the discovery period of the trial process turned up documents indicating that Takeda was aware of potential health dangers relating to the use of Actos as early as 2003, but chose not to place warning labels on its products due to sales considerations. If true, this would substantially bolster the claims of Mr. Cooper and the thousands of other individuals who have filed suits for injuries and health problems sustained from using Actos.

Unfortunately, Actos has caused numerous Americans to suffer serious health problems and side effects after they used the drug. Because Takeda was responsible for ensuring that the product was relatively safe to use and that consumers were warned of any potential issues that could result from using the drug, the manufacturer may be held liable for the repercussions these innocent parties have sustained.
