Dr. Joel J. Nobel once said, “The purpose of medicine is to prevent significant disease, to decrease pain and to postpone death…Technology has to support these goals-if not, it may even be counterproductive.”
Indeed, Dr. Nobel was right. However, with regards to Actos (pioglitazone), which is an oral medicine for Type 2 diabetes, instead of helping the patient with type 2 diabetes, it brings them another sickness known as Bladder cancer, heart failure, rhabdomyolysis, liver damage or bone fracture. Although, there is a contraindication that if patients have a history with bladder cancer or of heart attack, it should not be taken without consulting the physician first; still they are liable because they released such medicine knowing that its negative side effects can cause injury or death.The fact that patients take this medicine to prolong their life is ground enough to file charges against the makers of the said medicine.
In case you have a family member or loved one who suffered from the adverse side effects of Actos, now is the right time to get back at the company responsible for the making of Actos. The Pharmacuetical company has violated the patient’s right to enjoy life; thus, it is just legal that you will have them compensate for the loss that you suffered. You should act now because Actos lawsuit is under the statute of limitations, which means that there is a time limitation until when you can file a legal action against pharmacuetical company. If you will wait long enough, once the lawsuit reached its time limit, even if you have a strong case against the Pharmaceutical company, you will lose your legal right to compensation.
If one of the members of the family suffered from the negative side effects of taking Actos, you might be entitled to compensation such as Medical expenses, Loss of Consortium,Lost income,Lost earning capacity, Future medical expenses,Future lost income, Pain and suffering, Emotional anguish, Wrongful death, and Loss of enjoyment of life.
In case you have decided to file an Actos lawsuit, find the best attorney that you can get. Look for those reputable law firms who have specialization in medical law or who have won cases against pharmaceutical corporations. Show your loved that you care. Speak for him or her by exercising your right to compensation. The pharmaceutical company is civilly and criminally liable for causing your loved one such pain and anguish.
In conclusion, while Actos is a wallet friendly medicine for Type B diabetes, you should first determine both the positive and negative effects that are brought by taking Actos, or else you will end up in bad health and filing an Actos Lawsuit.
