Why Do Actos Victims File a Lawsuit?

Type 2 diabetes patients face an upheld battle to recover their health. Diet and exercise may help. Proper medication can mitigate effects, too. However, one Type 2 diabetes medication, Actos (pioglitazone), may do more harm than good.


In the last few years, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the health care community has increasingly realized that the side effects associated with Actos can be serious. For diabetes patients who take Actos for more than one year, the likelihood of developing bladder cancer or similar, related conditions can be as high as 40 percent.


Once they discover that their medication may have hurt rather than helped them, some Actos patients pursue legal remedies. Others do not. Whether to take action is an important issue. Why do some patients act? In most cases, it’s not greed. Rather, victims of insufficiently labeled, unnecessarily risky health products often take legal action in order to cover their medical expenses, protect future consumers, or make pharmaceudical companies face the consequences of careless decisions.
