National Law Firm Baron and Budd Helping Women with Alleged Injuries from Lipitor Use Understand the Lipitor Lawsuit
Date:8/31/2013

ST. LOUIS (PRWEB) August 31, 2013

The national law firm Baron and Budd has begun outreach to help women allegedly injured by statin drugs, such as Lipitor, understand their legal options. Prescribed to lower cholesterol, Lipitor has recently come into question because of the drug's alleged risk of developing type 2 diabetes in female patients. (In re: Lipitor (Atorvastatin) Litigation, MDL No. 2459 (JPML)).

"Type 2 diabetes is a dangerous and life-long condition that increases the patient's risk for blindness, strokes, heart attacks and kidney disease,” said Russell Budd of Baron and Budd. “What's most concerning is that, according to court documents, some healthy women who begin taking Lipitor as part of a preventative measure to decrease their odds of developing heart disease are allegedly developing type 2 diabetes - a condition that puts patients at an increased risk for many serious issues."

In addition to the increased risk of blindness, stroke, heart attack and heart disease that comes with type 2 diabetes, patients who find themselves diagnosed with type 2 diabetes must also commit themselves to a strict diet and must routinely keep track of their blood sugar levels.

By educating women who allegedly developed diabetes as a result of Lipitor use, Baron and Budd hopes to assist those harmed get back on their feet.

At this time, the Lipitor lawyers at Baron and Budd are reviewing claims involving women with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 35 or under who developed diabetes while taking Lipitor. Anyone who is concerned may contact Baron and Budd for a free and confidential evaluation of their potential case. Please call the Lipitor lawsuit lawyers at 1.866.844.4556 or email them at info(at)baronbudd(dot)com.
