Why Can a Lawyer Help?
Sometimes, people who have fallen victim to defective or dangerous products do not realize that it is within their legal rights to pursue compensation for the wrongs that have been done to them. However, under the area of law known as product liability, companies are responsible for the goods that they manufacture and can be held liable if they manufacture a dangerous or defective product that causes people to be hurt by it. A lawyer can use their in-depth knowledge of this field to help a person procure the compensation they need.
Actos is a Type-2 diabetes drug that was marketed as a safe alternative to Avandia, which was shown to greatly increase a person’s risk of heart attacks. Actos, however, has been shown to increase a person’s chances of developing bladder cancer. Regrettably, consumers of Actos did not receive information about this risk and were exposed to this potentially life-threatening danger. Thus, consumers of Actos may be able to pursue a product liability case against the manufacturer of Actos.
