ACTOS is a popular prescription medication prescribed to diabetics in order to control blood sugar levels. It is manufactured by Takeda Pharmaceuticals for treatment of Type II Diabetes, and has been on the market since 1999. We believe that Takeda's failure to adequately warn consumers of the increased risk of bladder cancer, and failure to warn about other potential medical problems, makes them liable for your injuries and damages.
If you have suffered bladder cancer, a heart attack, or a loved one has died as a result of taking Actos, we can help you.
The largest concentration of Actos users to develop bladder cancer had been taking the medication between 2-5 years, but the next largest group had only been taking Actos for 1-6 months.
Recent research studies have associated Actos with a possible increased risk of bladder cancer, an aggressive form of cancer. As a result, Actos has been subject to recalls in Europe. No recall has been issued in the U.S., although the Food and Drug Administration communicated the potential bladder cancer risk to the public and required updated Actos drug label safety warnings.
We believe that Takeda Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of Actos, should be held accountable for any harm that they have caused, and that the people who have suffered injuries from taking Actos should be treated fairly and compensated for their losses.
We represent all clients suffering from Actos related bladder cancer on a contingency basis which means that there are never any legal fees unless we win compensation in your case.
