Lipitor Lawsuits Continue to Be Filed in South Carolina Litigation, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:7/20/2014

(PRWEB) July 20, 2014

Lipitor lawsuits (http://www.thelipitorlawsuit.com/) alleging similar injuries caused by the cholesterol-lowering statin are being filed by the dozens in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in the U.S. District Court, District of South Carolina, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports.

According to documents published on July 15th, a total of 959 claims are now pending in the federal proceeding, which was established for Lipitor claims that similarly allege new-onset Type 2 diabetes caused by the cholesterol medication. Plaintiffs in these cases accuse Pfizer, Inc. of failing to adequately warn about this side effect in its marketing of Lipitor. (In re Lipitor (Atorvastatin) Litigation, MDL No. 2502)

“On a regular basis, our Firm hears from individuals who allegedly developed Type 2 diabetes after taking Lipitor. We are pleased to see this litigation continuing to move forward,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free and confidential case evaluations to individuals who may have sustained injuries caused by Lipitor.

Lipitor Lawsuits
Court records indicate that concerns about the alleged association between Lipitor and diabetes have grown steadily since February 2012, when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned that all statin manufacturers, including Pfizer, update their product labeling to include information about the risk for this disease. Preceding the FDA alert were the findings of a January 2012 study in JAMA: Internal Medicine that women taking Lipitor or another stain may run an increased risk for Type 2 diabetes.*

Lipitor lawsuits now filed in South Carolina federal court allege that Pfizer’s adjusted Lipitor labeling in February 2012 did not suffice, and that patients were still not properly warned about its potential to cause diabetes. They also accuse the company of knowing about this risk prior to February 2012, and withholding it from the public to protect market share.

Alleged victims of Lipitor and diabetes may be entitled to compensation from Pfizer, Inc. for their injury-related damages. To learn more about the possible association between Lipitor and diabetes, please visit Bernstein Liebhard LLP’s website, or call 800-511-5092 to obtain a free legal review.
