Brent Coon is investigating lawsuits for women who were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes while taking the Cholesterol level lowering drug Lipitor. Lipitor lawsuits are being filed across to the United States over the fact that Pfizer failed to warn patients that Lipitor can possibly elevate blood sugar levels and increase the risk of Type 2 diabetes in patients. In Feb of 2012, the FDA requested a label change which many believe is still not adequate enough to warn Lipitor patients of these dangerous side effects. In a JAMA study, released in 2012, the study indicated that people over 50 who took Lipitor were nearly 50% more likely to suffer from Type 2 diabetes. Currently, there is no lipitor class action lawsuit. These lawsuits have been filed on an individual basis to recover compensation from side effects suffered while under the use of Lipitor.
Lipitor MDL (Multi District Litigation)
In March of 2014 a Litpitor MDL or Multi District Litigation was approved and centralized in South Carolina under MDL No. 2502, In Re: Lipitor (Atorvastatin Calcium) Marketing, Sales Practices and Products Liability Litigation (No. II). The benefit of a Lipitor MDL is that all cases will be in one central location limiting multi discovery costs, expenses, etc. A Lipitor Statute of limitations may apply to your case. So it is important to contact a Lipitor Lawyer as soon as possible to begin the investigation of your Lipitor Claim. Lipitor was approved by the FDA in 1996 and is a highly used medication with millions of sales. The Statute of limitations varies by state which an experienced Lipitor lawyer can advise you on the best course of action based on your specific situation.
