Providing you with up-to-date news about Actos class action lawsuits around the country

It has been suggested that perhaps as many as 10,000 lawsuits could be filed against the manufacturers of Actos, a drug designed to treat Type 2 diabetes. U.S. courts have hundreds of these cases pending, and more are being filed every day. When this many people choose to file lawsuits against a company, it may be impractical to engage in individual litigation.

The advantages of filing Actos class action lawsuits

A class action suit involves multiple plaintiffs filing a suit against a single class of defendants. There are a number of advantages in filing a class action lawsuit as opposed to filing an individual claim. Those advantages may include:

  • More efficient litigation. Individual suits require their own individual hearings and court cases. Class action suits eliminate those extra cases, allowing your suit to be heard more quickly.
  • Lower costs to you. Every time you go to court you accrue additional court fees. In a class action case, those fees are divided among all of the plaintiffs.
  • Large compensatory amounts. You may be awarded less money if you file an individual suit. A class action lawsuit is likely to bring in larger amounts of compensation for you and your fellow claimants.

We believe that you should be given the option to pursue your case in the way that works best for you. We offer more than 65 combined years of experience in the personal injury field. Out attorneys keep you informed about changes regarding Actos and the FDA (and other government agencies) as well as additional lawsuits being filed around the country.
