Lawsuit Filed In Car Accident Case

Attorney James Sabatini has filed a lawsuit on behalf of his client who was seriously injured in a car crash. The client sustained a herniated disc in the cervical spine that produces radiating pain.  The client initially attempted to handle the case on his own and deal with the insurance company’s claims adjuster.  His dealings with the insurance company became increasingly frustrating so he contacted Attorney Sabatini to takeover the case on his behalf. It is not uncommon for the firm to be retained by a client only after the client attempted to handle his case on own.  In cases involving significant injury, the injured person absolutely requires legal representation to ensure that he is properly and fully compensated for his injuries and losses.

Diabetes Medication Actos Linked To Bladder Cancer

The diabetes drug Actos has been linked to bladder cancer.  A lawsuit has already been filed in court against Takeda Pharmaceuticals claiming that its diabetes medication Actos caused the plaintiff’s bladder cancer.  In the lawsuit, the plaintiff alleges that Takeda failed to warn of the risks of bladder cancer connected with Actos and that had there been such a warning the plaintiff would have sought an alternative course of treatment. 

Recent studies have indicated a connection between Actos usage and an increased likelihood of bladder cancer.  The FDA studied data from the first five years of a 10 year Actos safety study begun in 2002 and concluded that risk of bladder cancer was 40 percent higher for patients taking Actos for at least one year.  Doctors in France and Germany have been advised to stop prescribing Actos. If you or a loved one has taken Actos for more than one year, you may have a claim for damages and should contact our attorneys today at 860-667-0839.
