Nevada Man Files Lawsuit Over Actos, Which he Claims Caused his Bladder Cancer

Filed April 19th, 2013 Laurie

A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of a man who alleges the Type 2 diabetes drug Actos caused him to develop bladder cancer. The complaint was filed on April 2 in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana where it is pending alongside numerous other lawsuits in the Actos multidistrict litigation (MDL).

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he began taking Actos in October 2005; he only stopped taking the drug in October 2008, when he was diagnosed with bladder cancer. He claims the defendant, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, knew about the risks associated with Actos but failed to warn him, his doctor, or the public.

The plaintiff is seeking compensation for severe mental and physical pain and suffering, permanent injuries and emotional distress, economic loss due to medical expenses and expenses due to a new lifestyle caused by cancer. His wife is also suing for loss of consortium. They are represented by Parker Waichman LLP, where Jerrold S. Parker, founding partner of the national law firm, serves on the plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the MDL.
