When we are prescribed medication, the doctors, pharmacists, and even the drug bottle contain a myriad of warnings that serve as a legal disclaimer. If you take the medication and later develop an illness that was listed as a potential risk, you are considered to be adequately warned and typically cannot recover legally for your injuries. However, if you develop an illness or suffer an injury that was not listed as a potential risk, then you may seek compensation for your damages from the drug manufacturer. Actos is a drug used for the treatment of Type II Diabetes that was accompanied by a series of labeled risks. However, some patients who took Actos later developed certain heart, kidney, and bone disorders that may not have been listed as potential risks. If you took Actos and later developed a serious injury, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages. Contact an experienced Actos attorney to find out your legal options.
