Jury Awards $155,000 to Actos Victim

An injured plaintiff was awarded $155,000 in West Virginia for his Actos-related bladder cancer. The jury was only out three hours before it rendered its verdict. This verdict followed right on the heels of a Philadelphia jury verdict of $2 million to another former Actos user. In the recent trial the judge allowed the lawyer for the plaintiff to argue that defendant, Takeda, intentionally destroyed many of its Actos development and marketing files. The US spokesperson for Takeda said that the company is considering its options, which would include an appeal. There are more than 8,000 Actos cases filed around the country, with over 3,500 filed in federal court (which is where Locks Law Firm LLC files its Actos cases).

Locks Law Firm only provides legal advice after having entered into an attorney client relationship, which our website specifically does not create. Conversations that originate from website messaging, chat or other two way web based engagement  do not create an attorney client relationship. It is imperative that any action taken be done on the advice of counsel. Because every case is different, the description of awards and cases previously handled do not guarantee a similar outcome in current or future cases. The firm practices law in Pennsylvania, New Jersey & New York as Locks Law Firm. Super Lawyers, Best Lawyers in America and other organizations that rate attorneys are not designations that have been approved by the State Supreme Courts or the American Bar Association.
