Am I eligible for compensation?
When you have been negatively affected by a pharmaceutical product, you may be wondering whether or not you are eligible to pursue financial compensation. Many people take prescription drugs to treat a variety of illnesses. Actos was marketed as a safe alternative to Avandia to treat Type 2 diabetes, a condition that affects peoples’ insulin production and use. However, Actos has recently been connected to an increased risk of bladder cancer, and many patients who took the drug were not aware of these serious dangers when they filled their prescriptions.
If you or someone you know has taken Actos to treat their Type 2 diabetes and developed bladder cancer as a result, you may be eligible for financial compensation for:
- Treatment costs
- Recovery costs
- Emotional distress
- Physical distress
