Diabetes Drug Lawsuits – Taking New Cases
The Stevenson Klotz Injury Lawyers are filing new lawsuits against diabetes drug makers. You may receive financial compensation for the losses and suffering you endure because of medical complications from diabetes medication.
We are taking new claims involving the following drugs:
- Ozempic (semaglutide injection)
- Rybelsus (semaglutide tablets)
- Trulicity (dulaglutide)
- Saxenda (liraglutide)
- Wegovy (semaglutide injection)
Although originally approved for diabetes, today, these drugs are commonly used as weight-loss medication. Consumers may have taken these drugs unaware that they pose an increased risk of serious health issues.
Diabetes drugs for weight loss have been linked to gasteoparesis and gall bladder issues. Lawsuits seek compensation for victims who have suffered adverse health conditions after taking the drugs. The basis of their claims is that the drug companies failed to adequately warn of risks associated with the medication.
Who Can Join the Diabetes Drug Lawsuits?
- Take a weight loss drug, like Ozempic or Trulicity?
- Suffer serious medical complications, like gastrointestinal problems?
- Have increased medical bills, physical suffering or lifestyle changes?
You may qualify to join a diabetes drug lawsuit. Our lawyers are currently offering consultations and accepting new cases for people who took diabetes medication for weight loss. Contact us for a consultation to see if you can begin a claim for compensation.
Taking Diabetes Drugs for Weight Loss – About GLP-1 Agonists
Diabetes drugs for weight loss are a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) antagonists.
Most drugs are taken by injection, daily or weekly. The drug simulates a hormone to produce insulin, lowering blood sugar levels. Although scientists aren’t sure why the drugs help with weight loss, they may curb hunger.
In 2005, the Food and Drug Administration approved the first GLP-1 receptor medication for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Since that time, use of the medications has skyrocketed, with up to 1.7% of the U.S. population having a prescription for a semaglutide medication.
While approved for type 2 diabetes management, GLP-1 agonists have been prescribed in large numbers for weight loss. Today, as many as 1/3 of prescriptions for GLP-1 receptor medications are not for diabetes management. In some locations, off-brand use may be as high as 50%.
Complications and health problems
Medical complications and health problems from the use of GLP-1 agonists may include:
- Biliary disease – including cholecystitis, cholelithiasis and choledocholithiasis
- Pancreatitis, gallstone pancreatitis
- Bowel obstruction, blocked intestines
- Other severe stomach problems
Studies show an elevated risk of these health problems for people taking GLP-1 agonists for weight loss.
Lawsuits for Diabetes Drugs – You Have Rights!
Lawsuits are ongoing, and new claims are being filed. Pharmaceutical companies, including Novo Nordisk and Eli Lilly, are answering allegations that they failed to warn consumers about serious health risks.
Cases are in the early stages, and new cases are beginning now.
As a consumer, you have a right to necessary information to determine whether to take a drug. Without appropriate warnings, these drugs may be dangerous. Consumers who suffer severe medical complications may claim compensation. The process to receive monetary compensation is a legal claim.
You may have representation from an experienced personal injury attorney.
