Actos is a drug often prescribed for Type 2 diabetes. Long-term use has prompted agencies in Canada, Great Britain, Germany, France and the United States to issue warnings, alerts and bans because of the drug’s link to bladder cancer. The manufacturer of Actos, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, is facing thousands of lawsuits from patients who developed bladder cancer as a result of taking Actos.
At the Girardi | Keese law firm in California, when our lawyers hear about a drug like Actos (pioglitazone) that has been advertised and sold despite evidence of its dangers, we are not shocked. We have seen cases like this before. Our reaction is to investigate, litigate and hold yet another drug company accountable for the damage it has done.
As trial lawyers, we have a reputation for making drug companies and other big corporations publicly face the truth about themselves and compensate their victims. Other lawyers know that we have the resources, passion, experience, knowledge and determination to fight against companies that knew they were putting people in danger, but made a conscious decision to put profits first.
