A MDL product liability case involving a plaintiff diagnosed with bladder cancer after ingesting the drug Actos to treat his diabetes. Defendants had actual knowledge, based on numerous medical studies, of the dangers of long term use of the drug—leading to debilitating and horrific bladder cancer and eventually death.  The purveyors of Actos, Takeda Pharmaceutical, fraudulently concealed this information failing to disclose the dangerous risks to consumers, physicians, or anyone in the medical community. Instead, Takeda promoted the product as safe and effective, while earning billions of dollars in global sales per year. As a direct result of ingesting Actos—and the extreme greed and disregard for human life demonstrated by the defendants— our client has been permanently and severely injured and will require ongoing medical care and treatment for his cancer diagnosis throughout the remainder of his life.

How to Use Case Builder

Case Builder contains two helpful categories: cases we are working on now and our past results. Case Builder is a novel concept. Our web designer said we should have this information fixed in a web page. We disagreed—thinking that just like our practice is always changing the case builder should be an ever-changing description of where we are right now—not last month or a year ago.
