Lipitor Lawsuits Continue to Mount, as Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Filing of New Claim Alleging an Association Between Lipitor and Diabetes
Date:11/13/2013

p>

According to court documents, the October petition marked plaintiffs’ second request for the establishment of a multidistrict litigation for Lipitor lawsuits. Their first petition, which was filed in April, was rejected by the JPML on the grounds that there were too few filings to warrant a consolidated proceeding. However, at that time, just around a dozen Lipitor lawsuits had been filed in federal courts.

Court records filed in U.S. District Court, Southern District of Illinois also indicate that a number of similar lawsuits involving Lipitor and diabetes have also been consolidated in that jurisdiction for the purposes of discovery and other pretrial proceedings. (Hines v.Pfizer Inc., No. 13-404, S.D. Ill.)

In January 2012, a study that appeared in JAMA: Internal Medicine reported that post-menopausal women treated with drugs like Lipitor were at increased risk of developing new-onset Type 2 diabetes.* A month later, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) ordered Pfizer, Inc. to add new warnings to the Lipitor label regarding its possible association with an increased risk of diabetes.

In May 2013, the British Medical Journal also reported an association between Lipitor and diabetes, finding that patients who took the drug had a 22 percent increased risk of new-onset diabetes.**

Alleged victims of Lipitor and diabetes may be eligible for compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and more. Learn more about Lipitor lawsuits at Bernstein Liebhard LLP’s website. To arrange for a free legal review, please call 800-511-5092.
