If you took Actos – a drug used to treat type 2 diabetes – and developed bladder cancer, you may be eligible to file an Actos lawsuit. While Actos is a commonly prescribed diabetes medication in the United States and elsewhere, recent research has shown that consumers who use Actos face an increased likelihood of developing bladder cancer or other serious health risks. If you took Actos or pioglitazone for diabetes, and you have suffered severe side effects, such as bladder cancer or heart problems, you may be eligible to file an Actos lawsuit, which seeks compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other injuries.

Actos Bladder Cancer

Recent studies have shown that patients who take Actos seem to have a 22 percent increased risk for developing bladder cancer. Further, the study looked at the dosage of patients and the risk of bladder cancer and found that the higher the dosage the risk of bladder cancer increases significantly, up to 50 percent. If you developed bladder cancer as a result of Actos use, you may be entitled to pursue compensation by filing an Actos lawsuit.

Individuals may file an Actos lawsuit against Takeda Pharmaceuticals, the drug’s manufacturer, for their injuries. Takeda Pharmaceuticals may be liable in an Actos lawsuit for failing to warn users of the drug’s serious side effects and for misrepresenting the true safety of the drug. Should the manufacturer be found liable in an Actos lawsuit, the company will have to pay compensation to the injured victim.
