More than 10,000 were filed lawsuits alleging Actos injuries in state and federal courts across the United States, and a large number of plaintiffs will collect damages from drug maker Takeda Pharmaceuticals Co.
The Japanese manufacturer lost five of the first eight bellwether trials that linked its best-selling Type 2 diabetes medication to bladder cancer, although two verdicts later were overturned on appeal. The momentum of the litigation led Takeda to settle approximately 9,000 claims nationwide for between $2.37 billion and $2.7 billion.
If you or a loved one has been injured by Actos, you may also be eligible for compensation through a settlement or a jury verdict. But your claim will likely be vigorously contested by the drugmaker, so you should consider seeking help from an experienced Actos lawyer.
