Actos Lawyers


Lawyer Represent People Harmed by Actos

The FDA warns that long-term use of Actos may be associated with bladder cancer. A clinical study revealed that patients taking the drug for longer than a year have an increased risk of bladder cancer.

The safety information has led Germany and France to ban the sale of the drug, while U.S. regulators continue to assess the drug's safety. The FDA has closely monitored Actos since at least September 2010.


Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation Considers Actos MDL

December 1, 2011—Members of the Judicial Panel on Multi-District Litigation convened a hearing in Savannah, Georgia to consider consolidation of all federal lawsuits alleging injuries from Actos. The intent of an Actos MDL is to streamline discovery, including voluminous document exchange, and to avoid duplicative efforts and inconsistent rulings. If an MDL is created, every Actos lawsuit proceeding in federal court will be consolidated before a single judge.
