Federal Jury Orders Drug Makers Takeda and Eli Lilly to Pay $9 Billion for Actos Cancer Risk And Our Actos Lawyers Are Filing Lawsuits

Good News For Actos Victims

A federal jury ordered Takeda Pharmaceutical Co. and its partner, Eli Lilly & Co, to pay a combined $9 billion in punitive damages because the  drug manufacturers  hid cancer risks associated with their Actos diabetic  medication from the public. Actos has been linked to the development of bladder cancer. This was the first federal trial in this litigation. The jury also awarded  $1.5 million in compensatory damages. The punitive damages are to be paid as follows: Takeda was ordered to pay $6 billion, while Lilly will pay $3 billion.   Thousands of people have developed  bladder cancer  because these drug companies failed to warn of the dangers of Actos.

Actos Is Now Consolidated As a Centralized Multi District Litigation

  Actos lawsuits have been consolidated for nationwide litigation under Judge Doherty in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana. Actos lawsuits claim Takeda and Eli Lilly misrepresented and omitted information it held about Actos and “actively concealed its risks.” The lawsuits also claim Plaintiffs were not adequately warned about Actos risks and could have taken several safer alternative drugs had they known about the health risks posed by Actos.
