Several studies have confirmed a strong link between the type 2 diabetes drug Actos and increased bladder cancer risk. The risk of bladder cancer increases when Actos is used for more than a year. In 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration revised the label on Actos to warn of this risk.
Victims of Actos bladder cancer are entitled to file a lawsuit against Takeda Pharmaceuticals, the maker of Actos. If there is a link between your mother’s bladder cancer and her use of Actos, your mother may qualify for monetary compensation for her injury including payment of medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Your mother may be able to join an Actos class action lawsuit against Takeda Pharmaceuticals. Or your mother may file her own Wisconsin legal claims against Takeda. In Wisconsin, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is three years. Your Wisconsin personal injury attorney will be able to advise your mother on the best option for her and on the best time to file an Actos injury claim.
To get started, you or your mother should contact the Wisconsin personal injury attorneys at Hupy and Abraham. Call 800-800-5678 to schedule an appointment with a Milwaukee Actos injury lawyer. The initial consultation is always free and most cases are taken on a contingency basis. This means that you don’t pay unless we win.
