Our skilled Avandia and Byetta lawyers are no strangers to meaningful defective drug litigation. Since 1977, we have held manufacturers of defective drugs accountable to those they have harmed.

In 2001, we filed the first lawsuit against pharmaceutical giant Merck. This case was settled six years later for $4.85 billion.

Avandia was approved 10 years ago to improve control of blood sugar levels for sufferers of Type 2 diabetes. This drug was later found to have serious and potentially deadly side effects such as:

  • Heart Attacks
  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • Heart Valve Problems
  • Stroke
  • Hip Fracture

Byetta is a similar medicine, given by injection, to combat Type 2 diabetes. Commonly reported side effects include vomiting, diarrhea and upper abdominal discomfort.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has urged Byetta’s manufacturer to strengthen warnings against the potential for acute hemorrhagic or necrotizing pancreatitis.

If you feel that your worsening illness or injury can be traced to the use of Avandia or Byetta, be reminded that the clock is ticking on the personal injury claim you may be considering.

Please contact our Owen, Patterson & Owen defective drug litigation attorneys immediately. You may qualify for money damages as compensation for mounting medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. Survivors of those who have died from defective prescription drug use are entitled to bring a wrongful death legal action.
