Studies Show Invokana Increases Risk of Amputations by 50 Percent
Parker Waichman is actively involved in litigation against Janssen Pharmaceuticals and Johnson & Johnson, the manufacturers of Invokana. These corporations placed people at risk for horrific injuries, and our firm is helping victims and their families recover the damages they need and deserve.
The National News Reports on Two Important Invokana Lawsuits Filed Recently by Parker Waichman LLP
Our attorneys made national news recently when we filed two Invokana lawsuits in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Middlesex County. We alleged in these lawsuits that Janssen and Johnson & Johnson were negligent and engaged in egregious conduct that caused our clients to lose their legs after taking Invokana.
Lawsuits have also been filed in the Invokana Multidistrict Litigation (MDL). An MDL is a consolidation of many cases that involve the same product. The cases are all transferred to one federal court where one judge will oversee all the claims throughout the discovery process and will preside over the first trials in the litigation. The Invokana MDL is located in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey under the direction of U.S. District Judge Brian R. Martinotti.
In all of our Invokana lawsuits, Parker Waichman is including the following allegations against Janssen and Johnson & Johnson:
- Defective Design
- Defective Manufacturing
- Failure to Warn
Because of the actions and inactions of these manufacturers, diabetic patients have experienced life-altering injuries. If you have or someone you love has been affected by Invokana injuries, contact our offices today to receive a free case consultation regarding your potential claims.
Why Do I Need an Attorney for My Canagliflozin Amputation Lawsuit?
Our legal professional would never recommend that you try to navigate any legal claim by yourself. The risks of a “pro se” (without legal counsel) litigation are almost always too high. But especially in the circumstances of product liability litigation, you need an experienced attorney to represent you to make sure you have the greatest chance of success.
When you file an Invokana lawsuit, you are going up against major pharmaceutical corporations with career corporate lawyers who have been hired to diminish or eliminate your options for legal relief. The MDL process is particularly complicated, as well, and you need someone you can trust to guide you through the processes.
Throughout the course of your case investigation, your attorney will need to complete all of the following tasks:
- Develop a prescription history and Invokana usage timeline;
- Obtain pharmacy records that establish “proof of use,” meaning that you, in fact, took brand-name Invokana;
- Obtain medical records showing your medical complications related to Invokana, including your amputation consults, operative reports, and follow-up notes;
- Hire experts to review your medical records and case facts to provide objective opinions as to the viability of your claims;
- Calculate the statute of limitations on your claims, or the state-imposed deadline to file your claims in court;
- Determine the most appropriate venue for filing your claim;
- Draft and file a Petition for Damages against Janssen and Johnson & Johnson.
As you can see, a lot of work needs to be completed even before the case is filed. Upon filing, your attorney will begin the discovery process, which can vary depending on where the case is filed. Throughout every step of your case, it is important to have skilled attorneys you can count on to know the law, understand the issues, and fight for your rights.
What Should I Look for in a Canagliflozin Amputation Claims Attorney?
With so many attorneys listed online, it can be difficult to decide who you should select to represent you in your Invokana claim. You should contact the offices you’re considering and ask one of the firm’s attorney a number of questions to help you evaluate the firm’s ability to take on your case effectively. Questions we would recommend you ask are:
- How much experience do you have with drug product cases?
- Are you currently working on other Invokana cases?
- Are you familiar with the Invokana MDL?
- Have you filed other cases in MDLs?
- How many cases have you litigated against corporations the size of Johnson & Johnson?
- What is your system for updating clients on their cases?
- How many people in your office work on mass torts?
These questions will give you an idea of how much experience the firm and its attorneys have and how prepared they are to handle your Invokana claim. It is very important that you only work with lawyers who know what they’re doing. There is too much on the line for you and your family to hire an inexperienced lawyer.
