Actos Caused Bladder Cancer and Wrongful Death of New York Woman, Alleges Lawsuit Filed by Parker Waichman LLP
Date:7/9/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) July 09, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by defective drugs, has filed a lawsuit alleging that Actos is to blame for the bladder cancer and subsequent wrongful death of a New York woman.

The lawsuit alleges that the Decedent suffered from extensive pain and suffering and severe emotional distress as a result of using Actos.

Some research studies support the notion of a link between Actos and bladder cancer. The British Medical Journal published a study on May 31, 2012, that revealed Actos users were twice as likely to develop bl
