It seems that every few years a new “miracle drug” is released to help cure a certain ailment, only to prove more dangerous later on. The cycle continues with Actos.
Actos is a drug released by Takeda Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd. to help treat Type 2 diabetes. It has been linked to heart failure and other serious side effects, including bladder cancer. Thousands of people who have taken the drug may now be facing life-threatening diseases in addition to their Type 2 diabetes.
The personal injury lawyers of Snyder & Wenner, P.C. in Phoenix, Arizona, have been representing victims of defective products for more than 25 years. If you or someone you love has suffered serious side effects from Actos or another dangerous medication, we can help you recover the compensation you deserve.
Why Did the Drug Company Release Actos If It Is Defective?
Unfortunately, we will never know the full answer to this question. New drugs should pass through a series of trials prior to being released to the public. Often, however, the full and long-term effects of the drug are not known until it is too late. Pharmaceutical companies place warnings on the drugs, but only after many people have suffered life-threatening, and even fatal, side effects.
We believe that companies should be held responsible for releasing unsafe medication, such as Actos. We will devote extensive time and resources into building your case and fighting for the financial recovery you need to compensate for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. As experienced trial lawyers, we are not intimidated by large pharmaceutical companies, and will do everything possible to obtain the best possible outcome on your behalf.
