How do I join the Class Action for Actos after Developing Bladder Cancer?

ANSWER

The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. were previously reviewing Actos bladder cancer lawsuits for individuals nationwide.

Following several years of litigation, a global settlement was reached to resolve more than 8,000 claims for $2.4 billion in 2015. However, many individuals may still have rights to pursue a recovery.

Actos Class Action vs MDL

With a substantial number of nearly identical claims being pursued nationwide, many people refer to the litigation as an Actos class action. However, each claim is being pursued individually and each plaintiff must establish that their bladder cancer diagnosis was caused by Actos side effects and the drug maker’s failure to warn.

Since December 2011, all cases filed throughout the federal court system have been consolidated as part of a Multidistrict Litigation (MDL), which is centralized before one judge in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana.

While this pre-trial consolidation is handled similar in many respects to how a class action for Actos would be managed, each claim remains an individual lawsuits. Because the impact of bladder cancer is going to be different for every user, it is not possible for a large number of claims to be aggregated into one class representative, as would be the case in an Actos bladder cancer class action.

After calling our office or requesting a free and confidential consultation on-line, you will be contacted to review the circumstances surrounding the use of Actos and the bladder cancer problems. After it is determined that we can connect the injury to the use of the medication, it is your decision whether to hire one of our Actos “class action” lawyers to pursue your claim.

All cases are handled by our Actos law firm on a contingency fee basis, which means that all fees and expenses are charged out of any recovery that is obtained. If no money is received for our client, we receive no attorney fees or expenses.

    My mom has been taking these pills for over seven or more years, and her heart doctor told her to get off of them immediately. So please consult with her about this lawsuit that is taking.

    Actos not only causes cancer. I developed macular edema and pancreatitis from this medication. My life is forever changed.

    If I have bladder cancer I don’t yet know it. I do have bone pain in my left foot and ongoing pain in my pancreas. I was on actos from 9/17/2005 until 4/8/2010. I also have a greatly enlarged Adrenal Gland that at this point is not causing anything but that can change at any time. I at this point am somewhat scared.
