Product Liability Attorneys Representing South Carolina Clients in Invokana and Invokamet Lawsuits
Defending you after prescribed drugs cause you harm
Millions of people suffer from type 2 diabetes, a serious and sometimes debilitating medical condition. It requires specific medication to control. You trust that the medicine your doctor prescribes will make you better, not worse. However, common type 2 diabetes drugs Invokana and Invokamet have caused serious problems for some users.
When your prescription drug causes dangerous side effects, you have the right to pursue justice. If you or a loved one has been harmed by Invokana or Invokamet, turn to an experienced attorney at McGowan, Hood & Felder, LLC. Our South Carolina drug liability lawyers have the experience and skill to get you the compensation you need and deserve.
What are the common dangerous side effects of Invokana and Invokamet?
Invokana, or canagliflozin, is a drug used to treat type 2 diabetes by helping your kidneys eliminate glucose from your bloodstream and lowering blood sugar levels. Invokamet is a combination of Invokana and metformin.
There are many possible side effects of both of these drugs, including:
- Diabetic ketoacidosis
- Lactic acidosis
- Heart attack
- Kidney failure
- Kidney stones
- Urinary tract infections
In May of 2015, the FDA issued a warning about the possible negative side effects of Invokana and Invokamet. If you or a loved one has suffered any of these afflictions due to these drugs, you need to take action immediately. Our South Carolina product liability attorneys are prepared to help you file a claim.
What you have to prove in your lawsuit
In order to be successful in your defective drug lawsuit in South Carolina, you must be able to prove the following:
- You were injured or harmed
- The drug was either defective or improperly marketed
- The defect or improper marketing was the cause of your injury
Often, just suffering from dangerous side effects is not enough proof for a claim, as long as you were adequately warned of said side effects before taking the drug. However, because the most dangerous side effects of Invokana and Invokamet, such as ketoacidosis, were not discovered until after the drug was already administered, you can file a potentially successful lawsuit. With the help of a South Carolina drug liability attorney at our firm, you can gather the evidence you need to file a claim.
