What Doctors Do Not Tell You About Using Actos

Actos, also known as pioglitazone, received FDA approved for the treatment of diabetes in 1999. Since then, countless patients have reported experiencing adverse side effects from Actos that includes thiazolidinediones. In some instances, these reports have prompted the Food and Drug Administration to require manufacturers to include black box warnings regarding the dangers.

At Herren and Adams LLP, our attorneys have handled cases where patients experience mild to life-changing side effects from defective pharmaceuticals. Our three decades of experience have taught us that, while every case involving Actos is different, our dedication to helping victims remains the same. We understand how frustrating and painful it can be to experience these side effects, and it is simply unfair that you have to do so.

Use Of Actos Can Wreak Havoc On The Body

Some of the reported negative side effects include:

  • Congestive heart failure
  • Bladder cancer
  • Liver disease (rare)
  • Vision loss
  • Kidney disease
  • Macular edema (damage to the retina)

If you have experienced any of these side effects after using Actos, our Kentucky attorneys want to hear from you.

What Types Of Compensation Can Be Recovered In Products Liability Lawsuits?

You may have a long road to recovery ahead of you. As such, compensation can help you make it through the financial and emotional challenges you face.

Our lawyers can fight for compensation such as:

  • Current and future wage loss
  • Medical bills
  • Rehabilitation services
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Out-of-pocket expenses

We want to prevent an insurance company from offering you a lowball settlement that can leave you in a compromising position. Accepting a settlement for less than you are entitled to receive can leave you footing the bill and paying the price for a drug manufacturer's mistake for years to come.

As our client, we will fight insurance companies to help you obtain maximum compensation.
