Were You Hurt by the Drug Actos?

Columbia Actos Claim Lawyer

Filing an Injury Claim for Injuries from Actos

Have you or someone you love taken the medication Actos and later suffered bladder cancer? If so, you need to contact our firm's personal injury lawyer in Columbia today. This prescription drug, manufactured to treat Type 2 diabetes, has been linked to bladder cancer in some patients who took the drug. The Law Office of James R. Snell, Jr., LLC is very knowledgeable in litigating claims for clients who were injured as a result of taking Accutane and other dangerous drugs. When the manufacturers are found to be negligent in making a drug, the injured party should be fully compensated.

Common errors include:

  • Not thoroughly testing the drug before releasing it
  • Errors in the manufacturing process
  • Hiding negative facts about the drug

The evidence linking Actos with bladder cancer is strong enough that both France and Germany banned the use of the medication in 2011. The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has also issued a warning, stating that there is an increased chance of bladder cancer if used for a year or more.

In addition, there are other negative side effects linked with Actos, including:

  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Swelling of the face & extremities
