Expert Actos Attorneys in Orlando, FL
Holding Major Pharmaceutical Companies Liable
Whether you live in Miami, Orlando, Ft. Myers, or Naples, The Trial Professionals P.A. handles actos claims across Florida. Diabetes patients who have taken Actos face a heightened risk of developing bladder cancer. Actos (Pioglitazone) is manufactured by Takeda Pharmaceuticals for the treatment of Type II Diabetes, and has been on the market since 1999. Because of Japanese pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly’s involvement in marketing Actos on Takeda’s behalf, lawsuits have been filed against both companies for injuries related to the prescription drug.

Dangers & Side Effects of Actos
Some medical experts believe that Actos is dangerous enough that the FDA should issue a full recall of the medication completely. The danger was great enough to prompt the FDA to mandate a label change for Actos to warn of the bladder cancer risk in August 2011. Unfortunately, this safety label change came 12 years after Actos hit the market, meaning millions of people had already been unknowingly exposed to the potential of bladder cancer. Both France and Germany have already pulled the drug from their markets.
Possible Actos side effects include:
- Blood in urine
- Pain during urination
- Frequent urination
- Feeling of a need to urinate without results
- Bladder cancer
- Heart attack
- Congestive heart failure
- Bone fractures
- Lactic acidosis
Fighting for Fair Compensation for Victims
If you or a loved one developed bladder cancer after taking Actos, you deserve compensation for the physical, financial and emotional tolls of this disease. If taking Actos has resulted in death, then you may be able to file a wrongful death claim.
Our experienced OrlandoActos attorneys will fight to get you compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Future treatment
- Lost income
- Physical and emotional suffering
- Loss of companionship
- Decreased quality of life
The largest concentration of Actos users to develop bladder cancer had been taking the medication between two to five years, while the next largest group had only been taking it for one to six months. No matter how long you have been taking Actos, if you have side effects, you should go see your doctor immediately.
