Januvia® & Janumet® Lawsuit
Our personal injury lawyers are investigating legal claims on behalf of type 2 diabetes patients who believe they have been harmed by a sitagliptin based drug such as Januvia® or Janumet®. If you or a loved one suffered any serious side effects associated with one of these medications, you may qualify for compensation by filing a defective drug lawsuit.
On September 2009, the FDA mandated that Merck & Co. update the warning labels on all Januvia® and Janumet® packaging to warn patients about the potential risk of developing acute pancreatitis. From October 2006 through February 2009, 88 cases of acute pancreatitis had been reported to the FDA.
Januvia® and Janumet® are both suspected of being linked to serious health conditions, including:
- Acute pancreatitis
- Hemorrhagic pancreatitis
- Necrotizing pancreatitis
- Severe allergic reaction
Patients who suffered injuries may recover compensation through a settlement for damages such as:
- Medical bills
- Treatment costs
- Lost wages during recovery
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral and burial costs (in a case involving fatal effects)
