The safety of drugs has been a major issue for years, not only with patients but in the legal arena as medical malpractice attorneys fight for justice for victims.
A Kentucky woman filed a lawsuit against three drug manufacturers alleging that she suffered heart failure and cardiovascular injury from a popular type 2 diabetic medication. According to the lawsuit, the woman had taken the medication for approximately two years before being diagnosed with signs and symptoms. As a result of her injuries, the woman says she can no longer work as she had before, substantially reducing her earning capacity. The complaint also states that neither she or her doctor were properly informed about the risk of heart failure linked to the medication and alleges that they were purposefully deceived by the manufacturers.
