Los Angeles, Calif. (PRWEB) April 29, 2013
The Rottenstein Law Group, which represents clients in Actos lawsuits, is encouraged by a California state court jury’s $6.5 award to a victim of Actos injuries.
On April 26 a Los Angeles Superior Court jury awarded $6.5 million to 79-year-old Jack Cooper, a man who took the diabetes drug Actos for more than four years before being diagnosed with bladder cancer in 2011, and his wife, according to The Japan Times.* (Jack Cooper v. Takeda Pharmaceuticals America Inc., case number CGC-12-518535). The jury found that the Japanese drugmaker Takeda Pharmaceutical didn’t provide adequate bladder-cancer warnings to Cooper and his doctors.
Cooper’s suit was the first of 3,000 cases against Takeda for injuries allegedly caused by Actos to go to trial. Those cases are pending in Los Angeles Superior Court, where Cooper’s case was tried, and in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana, where more than 1,200 of them have been consolidated into a multidistrict litigation action (MDL No. 2299)*.
The Rottenstein Law Group urges anyone who has suffered adverse side effects from Actos or any other prescription medication to speak to a qualified personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. The firm maintains an Actos Lawsuit Information Center at http://www.rotlaw.com/takeda-actos/ that features information about how to file a lawsuit.
