Parker Waichman LLP Represents Pennsylvania Man in Lawsuit Alleging Actos Caused his Bladder Cancer
Date:6/7/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) June 07, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the victims of defective drugs, has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a Pennsylvania man who allegedly developed bladder cancer after taking the diabetes drug Actos (pioglitazone). The suit was filed on May 23rd in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana (Case No. 6:13-cv-1170) as part of the multidistrict litigation entitled In Re: Actos (Pioglitazone) Products Liability Litigation (6:11-md-2299).

Furthermore, the suit alleges that the Defendants knew about the risk of bladder cancer but failed to disclose this information to consumers in order to protect financial interests. The Plaintiff is alleging that Actos caused pain and suffering, emotional distress and economic damages in the form of medical expenses and lost wages. The suit is also seeking damages for loss of consortium on behalf of the Plaintiff’s spouse.

In June 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned that taking Actos for more than a year could significantly increase the risk of bladder cancer. The safety label on Actos was updated to address this risk*. Additional research supports the link between Actos and bladder cancer. Last May, a study in the British Medical Journal** found that Actos users were twice as likely to develop bladder cancer after two years.
