Januvia Lawsuit Information
Patients diagnosed with pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer or thyroid cancer after taking Januvia to treat their Type 2 diabetes are pursuing legal claims against Merck, alleging that the drug maker manufactured and distributed a defective and unreasonably dangerous drug. In August 2013, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) centralized all federal cases involving Januvia and other diabetes drugs belonging to the same class, including Victoza, Byetta and Janumet, in the Southern District of California, for coordinated pretrial proceedings as part of a multidistrict litigation (MDL). Additional lawsuits are expected to be filed in federal and state courts across the country, on behalf of individuals and families who believe they have been harmed by side effects of medications like Januvia.
Type 2 diabetes patients who took Januvia to help control their blood sugar levels and have since been diagnosed with pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer, thyroid cancer or another serious side effect may be entitled to compensation for their injuries and medical expenses.
