Louisiana Plaintiffs Claim Causal Link Between Actos and Bladder Cancer
A new complaint filed by an Actos lawyer in the United States District Court, District of Louisiana, alleges that several plaintiffs sustained severe complications after taking Actos for type II diabetes. Actos side effects include Actos bladder cancer and Actos heart failure. Plaintiffs allege that drug maker Takeda Pharmaceuticals knew of the risks associated with the drug but failed to disclose them, causing the plaintiffs severe physical injury, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and severe pain and suffering. At the federal court level, Actos cases have been combined and are being heard under the same judge as part of a multi-district litigation.
