When a diabetes medication causes an innocent person bladder cancer, how much compensation is enough?
For the 8,000 individual lawsuits, Takeda Pharmaceutical has offered a total of $2.2 billion in compensation to resolve claims of “hiding its Actos diabetes medicine’s cancer risk.”
Some attorneys say the settlement isn’t enough.
In 2011, Actos sales peaked at $4.5 million. That’s 27% of Takeda’s revenue at the time. And since 1999, Actos has seen $16 billion in sales.
Whether it’s enough or not, the positive news is that offers to settle are just beginning to be made. That means it’s not too late for you to make a claim!
