Pharmaceutical lawsuits are some of the most complex litigation there is. Currently, the lawsuit involving Invokana has been consolidated in federal court into a Multidistrict Litigation (MDL), and there are Bellwether trials set for September 2018. There are state law cases currently pending in New York, Pennsylvania, California, and others. Whether or not you wish to file in federal or state courts will depend on a multitude of factors which should be discussed thoroughly with a qualified pharmaceutical litigator. Drug companies keep experienced and aggressive lawyers on their payroll to defend against product liability lawsuits. They have vast resources and experience, and the company has a nearly unlimited budget to fight the lawsuit. It is crucial for patients who have suffered injuries from taking a drug to find a qualified lawyer to fight for their rights. In most cases, personal injury and mass tort litigators will accept cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that if they do not win the case, then you will not have to pay anything.
If you were prescribed Invokana and suffered an amputation prior to August of 2017, you might still be eligible to file your own lawsuit in either federal or state court. Contact the law offices of Paul Schiffer at 713-269-6828
