Pharmaceutical Lawsuits for Diabetes and Heart Failure Medications

Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR are frequently prescribed type 2 diabetes medications. They support people with diabetes by helping the pancreas produce more insulin and by preventing the liver from making excess glucose.

The FDA added a black box warning to these type 2 diabetes medications in 2016. The warning is related to the increased risk of heart failure and heart attack in patients who take these medications compared to similar patients who do not.

The Onglyza heart failure warning by the FDA cautions that patients who take it and experience symptoms of heart disease or heart attack should seek medical help. Onglyza heart failure symptoms include shortness of breath, weakness, fatigue, trouble breathing while lying down, heart palpitations, dizziness, faintness, and swelling in the ankles, feet, legs, or stomach.

Choosing a lawyer for your diabetes medication lawsuit can be a daunting task.

There are a few things that can help you make your decision to ensure that you’re getting the best attorney for the job.

One of the first things you’ll want to do is make sure the law firm has handled pharmaceutical lawsuits before. If you’re filing a lawsuit for diabetes medications and heart failure, you’ll want to make sure they have experience with those specific medications and side effects.

Another important consideration when choosing a lawyer is making sure they are empathetic listeners and that they understand your case. A good way to confirm this is through a free consultation. Look for a law firm that offers this no-fee consultation to potential clients.

Contingency fee law firms are a good option because they don’t require clients to pay any upfront costs. Instead, the client only pays the attorneys when compensation is recovered.

Ultimately, a good lawyer should do more than simply promise big payouts and file legal paperwork for clients.

They should also

  • evaluate your case and help you understand your options
  • start investigating your claims, gathering evidence to prove your case and identifying who was responsible for the injuries you suffered 
  • determine the compensation you might be entitled to
  • handle paperwork and negotiations on your behalf and keep track of important deadlines

How can we help you?

Large pharmaceutical companies have a responsibility to inform patients about potential risks associated with their medications. When they fail to do so, affected patients have the right to file a pharmaceutical lawsuit against them in order to recover compensation.

Type 2 diabetes medications Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR have been found to increase risk of heart failure and heart attack.

Patients who suffered these side effects due to these medications are entitled to receive compensation to help cover costs associated with their heart problems.

If you experienced a heart attack, heart failure, or other cardiovascular problems after taking Onglyza or Kombiglyze XR, you may be eligible to file a diabetes medication lawsuit. Filing a diabetes medication lawsuit holds pharmaceutical companies accountable and shows them it doesn’t pay to withhold information about risks from patients.

It also provides economic compensation to you so that you can make sure your medical costs are covered. Knowing your medical bills are covered can be a great source of relief for many people who understand that recovery from heart failure can be costly and lengthy.

How can we help you?

If you’ve experienced serious side effects after using type 2 diabetes medication, you may be entitled to compensation.

Many pharmaceutical companies didn’t adequately warn patients of the risks associated with their diabetes medications.

Complications like increased risk of heart failure or heart attack are serious and require extensive medical care. The average pharmaceutical lawsuit settlement can be hard to estimate, and the unique factors in your individual claim will determine the exact amount you receive.

Every case is unique, so the amount of money you may be able to recover depends on your circumstances. If you’ve suffered financial, emotional, and physical losses, you may be entitled to compensation and receive a settlement check for

  • past and future medical bills
  • loss of enjoyment of life
  • loss of consortium (loss of comfort, care, and society)
  • emotional distress
  • pain and suffering
  • property damage
  • lost wages
  • lost earning capacity
  • out-of-pocket expenses
  • psychological trauma

For them to have already have met for settlement talks in my case is quite impressive. I have never had any communication issues with them. They are quite thorough and have no problem updating you on your case, just give them a call. Be proactive in your communication with them and patient as they fight for us. I understand concerns regarding the time frame, I often daydream of being financially secure and providing a better life for my family, that day will come. I trust Onder Law.

I have nothing but confidence in Onder Law Firm. I’ve had the honor of meeting several of their staff at a social event and my fiance has since signed with them to handle a claim against a company. What alot of these people who have left bad reviews about them fail to realize is that their types of cases don’t get resolved overnight, they have a massive caseload on top of an already delayed court system, and they’re not going to call you just to say they have no update on your case They are going up against billion and trillion dollar companies who have an endless supply of resources. Be patient and let your attorneys do what they do…… THEY WILL WIN FOR YOU AND THEY WILL WIN BIG. They’ve never hidden the fact that the process will be long. But it WILL be worth it.

They are so friendly and caring. I trust them. They are doing the right thing for me and my family.
