How Do Contingency Fees Work for Benicar Injury Attorneys?



UPDATE: On August 1, 2017, a $300 million Benicar settlement was reached with the drug makers to resolve certain claims for injuries stemming from use of Benicar, Benicar HCT, Azor or Tribenzor prior to May 2015.

Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. is longer reviewing new cases. The content on this page is provided for informational purposes only.

The product liability attorneys at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. handled all Benicar injury lawsuits, Azor injury lawsuits and Tribenzor injury lawsuits under a contingency fee agreement, which means that there were never any out-of-pocket expenses paid by our clients, and we only received an attorney fee after a recovery was obtained for an injury caused by the blood pressure medication.

Studies have confirmed that side effects of Benicar (olmesartan medoxomil) may increase the risk of chronic diarrhea, sudden weight loss and other symptoms of a medical condition known as sprue-like enteropathy. Similar problems have been linked to all medications containing olmesartan, which also include Benicar HCT, Azor and Tribenzor.

As a result of the drug maker’s failure to adequately warn consumers and the medical community about these potential risks, our attorneys believe that financial compensation should be paid to former users who have experienced Benicar diarrhea problems for years, which often result in serious and permanent intestinal damage.

Daiichi Sankyo, the manufacturer of Benicar, is a global pharmaceutical company that generates billions of dollars in profits each year.

The hypertension drug is a significant part of Daiichi Sankyo’s business, and Benicar is the third best-selling drug in its class. As a result, it is expected that the pharmaceutical company will devote substantial resources to defending these cases, in an attempt to deter people from pursuing cases and minimize Benicar settlement costs.

Through the use of contingency fees, our Benicar attorneys help level the playing field, providing the highest quality of representation and access to the best experts available – regardless of an individual’s financial resources.
