“The purpose of medicine is to prevent significant disease, to decrease pain and to postpone death…Technology has to support these goals-if not, it may even be counterproductive.”, Dr. Joel J. Nobel once said.

Indeed, Dr. Nobel was right. However, with regards to Actos (pioglitazone), which is an oral medicine for Type 2 diabetes, instead of helping the patient with type 2 diabetes, it brings them another sickness known as Bladder cancer, heart failure, rhabdomyolysis, liver damage or bone fracture. Although, there is a contraindication that if patients have a history with bladder cancer or of heart attack, it should not be taken without consulting the physician first; still they are liable because they released such medicine knowing that its negative side effects can cause injury or death.The fact that patients take this medicine to prolong their life is ground enough to file charges against the makers of the said medicine.

If a member of the family is suffering from the adverse side effects by taking Actos, now is the opportune time to sue the pharmaceutical corporation behind Actos. They have disregarded the patients and your right to enjoy life; therefore, it is just legally correct that they will be sued for the loss that you felt. You should not delay in filing the lawsuit because Actos lawsuit is under the statutes of limitation, which means that there is a prescribed time as to until when you can file a legal action against the accused. If you wait long enough before you file the case, even if you have a strong case against the person responsible for your loss.

If one of the members of the family suffered from the negative side effects of taking Actos, you might be entitled to compensation such as Medical expenses, Loss of Consortium,Lost income,Lost earning capacity, Future medical expenses,Future lost income, Pain and suffering, Emotional anguish, Wrongful death, and Loss of enjoyment of life.

If you have made a decision to file an Actos lawsuit, you should do some research for the best attorney that you can hire. Hire those reputable firms that are specializing in medical law or those who have won cases against pharmaceutical corporations. Let your loved one feel that you care. Exercise his or right by filing a lawsuit against the pharmaceutical corporation. They are liable in both civil and criminal laws for causing your loved one pain and suffering.

As a conclusion, though Actos is a cost effective Type 2 diabetes medicine, you should examine its positive and negative effects before taking it; otherwise, you will see yourself suffering and filing an Actos Lawsuit.
