GlaxoSmithKline PLC: Avandia
MURRAY, FRANK & SAILER represents victims who have suffered injury from the use of the diabetic drug Avandia. The complaint alleges that Avandia, the drug developed, marketed and distributed to treat Type II diabetes mellitus, caused serious side effects, notably cardiovascular problems, including heart attack, heart failure, and primary pulmonary hypertension ("HPP"). Moreover, women taking Avandia may be exposed to a higher risk of bone fracture.
On June 14, 2007, the New England Journal of Medicine released a study which found that there was an increased risk of heart attacks by 43%. On November 14, 2007, the Food & Drug Administration required GlaxoSmithKline to add a "black box" to the label warning consumers of s cardiovascular risk.
If you or your loved one has sustained injuries arising from use of Avandia, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your pain, suffering, medical bills, etc. We invite you to contact us by telephone at (212) 682-1818 or toll free at (800) 497-8076, by email at [email protected], or by clicking on the "Avandia Intake Form" link below, to discuss your rights as an Avandia injury victim.
