According to the complaint, the Plaintiff took Actos from 2004 and 2007; she developed bladder cancer around April 2006.

As a result of their negligent and/or fraudulent actions, the lawsuit is alleging severe mental and physical pain and suffering, past and future permanent injuries and emotional distress, economic loss due to medical expenses and living related expenses as a result of a new lifestyle. The suit also claims loss of consortium on behalf of the Plaintiff’s husband.
