Actos Bladder Cancer Attorneys
At The Law Offices of Regis Mullen & Shane Mullen, Inc., our Actos drug recall lawyers are skilled and ready to help those who have developed bladder cancer after taking the drug for treatment of type 2 diabetes. While the drug is effective for managing blood glucose levels in type 2 diabetics, it has been shown to substantially increase the risk of bladder cancer in those who have used Actos for longer than one year. Our Actos attorneys are dedicated to securing the compensation those who have developed bladder cancer deserve for their injuries.
Actos, or prioglitazone, was first linked to an increased risk of bladder cancer by the French Agency for the Safety of Health Products. Soon after, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration reviewed ongoing studies regarding the risks of the drug, and found that patients who were prescribed Actos were exposed to serious health issues. As concerned Actos drug recall attorneys, we believe that patients who have developed bladder cancer are entitled to compensation of costs associated with their injuries. You may be eligible for compensation for:
- Present and future medical expenses
- Lost income (and future lost income)
- Loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life and emotional anguish
- Wrongful death (in the event that a loved one has died due to taking Actos)
Takeda Pharmaceuticals, makers of Actos, conducted a 5-year study involving patients who used the drug for treating type 2 diabetes symptoms. In this study, it was determined that patients who had taken the drug for longer than 12 months were at a greater risk for developing bladder cancer than individuals who had never taken the drug. If you or a loved one have developed the disease after taking Actos, it is important the you seek legal guidance from a competent Actos attorney with the experience necessary to secure a favorable outcome.
While no Actos drug recalls have been issued in the United States, the FDA did issue a strong warning in June of 2011 regarding the risks associated with prolonged use of the drug. If you have bladder cancer, or have developed symptoms which may include bloody or pink/red tinged urine, painful urination, intense back/abdominal pain or frequent urination, consult with your doctor right away.
