Now that an MDL has been established, Actos victims must be kept aware of this preliminary litigation phase, as it will affect their claim.
Texas (PRWEB) January 04, 2012
The Texas Actos attorneys at Grossman Law Offices continue to brief victims about the potential ramifications of their prescription drug injury. With the legal climate changing daily, those who have experienced an injury from the diabetes Type-2 drug need current information regarding a potential personal injury claim.
For example, prior to December 29, 2011, a drug injury claim against the manufacturer of Actos, Takeda Pharmaceuticals America Inc. was an individual motion. However on Thursday December 29, according to the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation, case MDL No. 2299 was established, combining eleven original Actos lawsuits from around the country into the Western District of Louisiana.
Multidistrict litigation (MDL) is used when civil actions in more than one court involve one or more common questions of fact. An MDL is then established to efficiently guide pretrial proceedings and a discovery phase for like-claimants.
Texas Actos injury attorney Michael Grossman comments, "Now that an MDL has been established, Actos victims must be kept aware of this preliminary litigation phase, as it will affect their claim. Precedent is being set in the Western District of Louisiana, and our site aims to provide clients and other Actos victims with relevant and current information about possible compensation for their injuries."
