Ever since the news broke that Avandia, a prescription drug used to manage the symptoms of diabetes, was causing heart attacks, those injured by the drug have been asking what they can do get compensated for their losses.
Though medical bills, loss of earning potential and pain and suffering can be part of a pharmaceutical class action lawsuit, there is more to be gained. For too long big pharma has put profits over people. They care more about making money then actually healing and treating their consumers. They allow drugs and medical devices to stay on the market, even when it is clear that they are doing harm.
Avandia was causing heart attacks and other heart events as far back as 1999, yet the drug was left on the market, causing 83,000 heart attacks between 1999 and 2007. Why? How could this happen? How can the pharmaceutical industry continue to cause harm?
Class action lawsuits are often the only way to get big pharma to pay for their mistakes and, beyond that, take responsibility for their actions.
If you have suffered a heart attack while taking Avandia contact your Milwaukee pharmaceutical class action lawyer at Hupy & Abraham for your free consultation. One voice won't effect change. But together we will be heard.
