The Consumer Justice Foundation, a for-profit corporation whose team of professional consumer advocates provide free online informational resources that deal with the potential dangers of using certain prescription medications, hereby alerts the public that an Actos bladder cancer lawsuit has been filed in Louisiana by a woman who alleges that her use of this diabetes medication led to her contracting bladder cancer.
Specifically, the case has been assigned a case number of 6:12-cv-1701 and it names several defendants in the action. These defendants include Takeda Pharmaceuticals America, Inc., Takeda Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc., Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America, Inc., Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited and Eli Lilly and Co. The case was filed on June 14th in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana and is assigned to Judge Rebecca Doherty.
This Actos bladder cancer lawsuit alleges that the plaintiff used Actos between the years of 2004 and 2007. The plaintiff was diagnosed with bladder cancer in 2006, and she alleges that the prolonged use of Actos is what led to this diagnosis. As a result of this diagnosis, the plaintiff alleges that she has incurred damages that include past and future medical costs, past and future pain and suffering, past and future emotional distress and the loss of companionship with her spouse.
Actos is a diabetes medication that is prescribed for people to help them treat their symptoms associated with type 2 diabetes, and in recent years the medication has been banned in both France and Germany and the United States Food and Drug Administration has required warnings to be published on the labels of this medication that alert its users of the potential risks involving bladder cancer for those who use it for a prolonged period of time.
