Types of Dangerous Drug Cases
Actos is an incredibly popular prescription diabetes drug that has been found to be associated with the development of bladder cancer in diabetes patients. While many countries have banned Actos, the United States has only warned patients of the potential side effects and has continued to allow the prescription of the drug. Many diabetes patients have turned to the legal system to hold the manufacturer of Actos accountable for the devastating side effects of the drug and to claim the compensation they deserve for their pain, suffering, and even death. If you or a loved one has experienced the side effects of Actos, contact Kuhlman & Lucas, LLC today for a free case evaluation.
GranuFlo is a dialysate that was used in thousands of dialysis centers across the country to treat patients with kidney disease or failure. However, after a pattern of complications occurred, the FDA issued a recall of GranuFlo, as it was found to be causing low blood pressure and cardiac arrhythmia in patients exposed to GranuFlo. Evidence suggests that the manufacturer of GranuFlo was aware of these dangerous side effects and did not properly warn consumers or pull GranuFlo off the market. If you believe you have been wrongfully injured by GranuFlo, contact Kuhlman & Lucas, LLC today for a free case consultation.
The anti-anxiety and depression drug, Lexapro, is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) that has been shown to cause birth defects when a woman takes the drug while pregnant. Research has shown that SSRIs can increase the risk of heart defects and is also linked to neural tube defects in newborns. Lexapro also carries a black box warning for suicidal thoughts and tendencies. If you or a loved one has experienced the potentially devastating side effects of Lexapro, contact Kuhlman & Lucas, LLC today for a free case evaluation.
Lipitor is prescribed to control high cholesterol levels to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke and is the world’s top-selling prescription drug of all time with total sales exceeding $130 billion. While Lipitor is a drug that can reduce cholesterol levels, it has also been found to have some serious side effects, including an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, muscle disease, and liver and kidney complications. If you believe you have been injured by Lipitor, contact Kuhlman & Lucas, LLC today for a case consultation.
When Pradaxa hit the market, it was seen as a major upgrade from the most commonly used prescription blood-thinner, warfarin. After being available for a few years, however, many patients who took Pradaxa were suffering and even dying from hemorrhaging and uncontrollable bleeding. These side effects could be just as serious as a stroke, which is what Pradaxa was manufactured to prevent. Many have taken legal action against the manufacturers of this drug to receive compensation for their injury or loss of a loved one. If you believe you have a Pradaxa case, do not hesitate to contact Kuhlman & Lucas, LLC today for a free case evaluation.
