How Long May It Take To Settle Invokana and Invokamet Cases?
Individuals who have suffered diabetic ketoacidosis, leg or foot amputations, kidney damage, heart attacks or other injuries caused by side effects of Invokana, Invokamet or similar diabetes drugs may be entitled to financial compensation as a result the drug makers’ failure to adequately warn patients and the medical community about the risks associated with these newer medications.
The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. represent individuals throughout the United States who are pursuing an injury lawsuit following use of a new generation of diabetes drugs, which include:
- Xigduo XR
Although it appears that the drug makers knew or should have known about the risk of serious and potentially life-threatening injuries associated with their medications, they decided to aggressively market these new diabetes treatments while withholding information about the potential risk of problems.
The first Invokana lawsuits were filed in mid-2015, and several hundred cases were ultimately brought nationwide involving individuals hospitalized due to ketoacidosis, who required leg or foot amputation, or suffered kidney failure.
In December 2016, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) established centralized pretrial proceedings in the federal court system, where the cases are being managed in a manner similar to an Invokana class action lawsuit.
Throughout 2017 and 2018, the parties prepared a small group of representative “bellwether” cases for early trial dates, which were designed to help gauge how juries may respond to certain allegations that will be repeated throughout the litigation. While the outcomes of these early trial dates will not be binding on other claims, they may influence eventual negotiations to resolve claims.
There have been reports of some Invokana settlements in select cases, but our injury attorneys are continuing to review and evaluate potential amputation claims.

Factors Considered in Settling Invokana Injury Lawsuits
If any individual cases do not settle and proceed to trial, a jury will weigh several factors in determining the amount of any Invokana damages award, including:
- The extent and duration of the Invokana injury, including the medical care or treatment required as a result of the injury.
- The amount of any lost wages, medical expenses or other economic damages.
- The effect that the injury from Invokana had on the overall physical and mental health or well-being of the plaintiff.
- The pain and mental anguish suffered in the past and which will likely be suffered in the future.
- Any long-term injuries that may affect the plaintiff’s future health or enjoyment of life.
