HIRE A TRUSTED & DEDICATED ATLANTA INJURY ATTORNEY
Dangerous side effects have been reported against some of the most commonly prescribed Type 2 diabetes drugs. Many of the individuals who have been affected have already filed lawsuits against some of the major pharmaceutical companies, including Merck (Januvia and Janumet), Bristol-Meyers Squibb (Byetta), and Amylin due to the reported increased risk of developing pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer.
Complaints Allege Failure to Issue Warnings
The lawsuits allege that the manufacturers knew about the alleged increased risk but failed to send warnings to the public. This means that not only were patients misled about the safety of the drug, but the companies proliferated the secret for several years before the effects began coming to light. Millions of people have already filed across the entire nation, and if you would like additional information, contact our team of Atlanta personal injury lawyers.
