Pre-Settlement Funding for Invokana Lawsuits

Invokana Lawsuits: Pre-Settlement Funding

 

“Kevin” (not a real person) was diagnosed with type-2 diabetes in his mid-20s. He did his best to keep his weight down and carefully monitored his insulin levels, but it wasn’t always enough to keep his symptoms in check. He regularly suffered from fatigue and uncomfortably high levels of hunger and thirst.

During one of his routine checkups, Kevin’s doctor suggested a new drug from a leading pharmaceutical company that would help him manage his symptoms. Desperate for relief, Kevin immediately embarked on a regimen with Invokana, which was supposed to help control his blood sugar levels by helping his kidneys remove glucose from his bloodstream.

For a while, the medication seemed effective; his symptoms markedly decreased, and he found he had more energy for everyday activities. He even hauled an old bicycle out of his garage and went on long rides in the evenings. In just over a month, he’d lost 10 pounds and felt better than ever.

Then the trouble began. On one of his rides, Kevin suddenly found himself short of breath and his stomach began to ache. He barely made it back home before bolting to the bathroom and vomiting. The next day, he was so tired he didn’t even feel like going for a ride. The fatigue was back, and it came with other symptoms, worse than before.

At his next checkup, Kevin received stunning news: he had developed diabetic ketoacidosis, a potentially deadly disease that is caused when the body produces too many acids, called ketones. In May 2015, the FDA warned that the type-2 diabetes medicines  dapagliflozin, empagliflozin, as well as canagliflozin (the active ingredient in Invokana), may lead to ketoacidosis. In December 2015, the FDA revised labels on Invokana and the other type-2 diabetes drugs to include warnings about ketoacidosis and other risks.

Kevin stopped using Invokana and sought a personal injury attorney to file a lawsuit against its manufacturer, Janssen, which is a division of Johnson & Johnson. As the lawsuit worked its way through the system, Kevin’s diabetes symptoms returned, sapping his energy and making everyday life a challenge. That was when his lawyer suggested he contact USClaims.

Construction Worker Safety Risks During Winter Months

With the shorter days, darker evenings, and colder weather come additional risks for drivers. But for construction workers, who already face a higher risk of injury, the winter months mean more safety hazards.

Can You Negotiate a Car Accident Settlement?

Navigating a car accident’s aftermath is challenging, especially with mounting financial pressures. While insurance companies often propose settlements that undervalue your claim, you can take control. By

Daylight Saving Time a Factor in Fatal Car Crashes

It’s this time of year when we start to think about the changing days due to daylight savings time. It stays darker later in the morning and becomes darker outside earlier in the evening. Most states participate in daylight saving time twice per year, with the second Sunday in March taking an hour of daylight away from the morning and giving it to the evening. This remains until the first Sunday in November, when the clock falls back into place. And while most are happy to gain an extra hour in their day on the day that it occurs in the fall, or gain another hour of sunlight in the spring, it also contributes to some rather unhappy statistics.
