Lipitor Lawsuits

According to court documents, hundreds of Lipitor lawsuits are moving forward in the federal multidistrict litigation underway in the U.S. District Court, District of South Carolina. As of December 15th, a total of 1,478 claims alleging Lipitor diabetes complications had been filed in the proceeding by plaintiffs who accuse Pfizer Inc. of failing to adequately warn about side effects associated with its product. The filing of these claims follows a federal mandate from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that in February 2012 required statin manufacturers to adjust the labeling on their products to reflect new information about a possible link to Type 2 diabetes. The FDA notice followed the results of a study published in JAMA: Internal Medicine that showed an increased risk of the disease in post-menopausal women on statins.*

Individuals who were diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes after taking Lipitor may be eligible to seek compensation for lost wages, out-of-pocket medical expenses and other injury-related damages that allegedly resulted from its use.
