This genital infection can result in permanent disfigurement and can also cause life-threatening side effects or death.
Are there diabetes drug infection lawsuit time limits that may apply to my case?
Most states do have diabetes drug infection lawsuit time limits; however, the majority of all claims related to a Type 2 diabetes drug infection will fall within those time limits if they contact an attorney in the near future. For specific time limits for your claim, please fill out the form at right and one of our attorneys will contact you as quickly as possible, usually within the hour.
We're not the type of people who sue; do we really need to file a lawsuit?
If a member of your family suffered a serious injury or health problem as a result of a defective product or dangerous drug, long-term, or even lifelong, medical care may be required. This could be incredibly expensive and since medical costs are continually rising may be largely unknown at the time of settlement or trial. If a member of your family died due to a defective product or dangerous drug, no amount of money can undo that wrong. It is our fervent hope that every defective products, drug or other medication lawsuit we file can serve to make the manufacturer take note of the loss and pain its product has caused. When that fails to make a company take action in the form of a product recall, greater warnings about its use and ultimately making safer products, we rely on their profit motivation to make them do the right thing. Unfortunately, in all too many cases it is only the fear of lawsuits and large settlements and verdicts that makes a company become a better corporate citizen.
Who is at risk for the severe genital infection known as Fournier's gangrene?
Any persons taking one of the thirteen drugs listed on the FDA Diabetes Drug Infection Warning may be at risk for developing a severe genital infection. The condition affects both men and women, and develops an average of nine months after the patient begins taking the drug. Persons experiencing pain, swelling, or redness in the perineal area who are taking SGLT2 inhibiting drugs should seek medical attention. The full list of diabetes drugs that cause Fournier's gangrene includes:
From Janssen / J&J: canagliflozin - Invokana, Invokamet, Invokamet XR
From Astra Zeneca: dapagliflozin - Farxiga, Xigduo XR, Qtern
From Merck: ertugliflozin - Steglatro, Segluromet, Stelujan
Aren't most drug and products liability lawsuits just class action lawsuits where the plaintiff receives very little money?
No, diabetes drug infections lawsuits will not become a class action. National diabetes drug infection lawsuit claims may eventually be consolidated as MDL, or Multi-District Litigation, where each plaintiff receives a settlement based upon the individual injuries and damages incurred by each plaintiff. This process is reserved for circumstances where a group of plaintiffs shares a common complaint that constitutes severe harm. MDL increases the efficiency of handling similar cases filed against one or more companies, in this case all related to severe diabetes drug infections of the genitals.
