Invokana Lawsuit Lawyer

Why Are Invokana Lawsuits Being Filed?

Thousands of people who suffer from type 2 diabetes have filed lawsuits against the pharmaceutical companies that manufacture Invokana. Many of these consumers suffered kidney damage, ketoacidosis or amputations after taking the drug, and they may not have been properly warned about the side-effects.

Our team’s position is this:

  • Invokana is a defective and dangerous drug
  • Manufacturers did not properly test this medication
  • Drug makers failed to warn consumers of the increased risks (see below)
  • The safety of this drug was misrepresented in commercials and other advertisements

About Invokana

Only available with a prescription, Invokana is used to improve a patient’s control of their type 2 diabetes. According to the manufacturer, Invokana can help lower blood sugar by boosting the effectiveness of a patient’s kidneys.

Since Invokana directly impacts the kidneys, these organs are often impacted by the drug’s potentially severe side effects.

Invokana Side Effects & Injuries

Some of the drug’s most serious side effects and injuries include:

  • Kidney Failure – when the kidneys stop functioning, fluids and chemicals can build-up in the body, causing a variety of sudden and painful conditions, and it can result in death if left untreated.
  • Amputations – patients taking Invokana are twice as likely to require a leg or foot amputation than those who not taking this medication.
  • Ketoacidosis – this condition can put a patient in a diabetic coma, and it is caused by very low levels of insulin.
  • Heart Attacks – when there is a blockage in an artery, blood may be unable to reach parts of the heart, causing that tissue to lose oxygen and vital nutrients needed to function properly.

I am very thankful and appreciative for the wonderful job that The Barnes Firm has done for me with my auto accident. I think I was lucky to have Landon and Ali worked on my case. They were always available for me.

I was in a car accident and contacted, The Barnes Firm. I was transferred to an attorney right away. The attorney was very pleasant and helpful. He answered all my questions. He set up an appointment that same week. The attorney himself, came over to my home. He went over the paperwork and explained the procedure very thoroughly. The attorney’s paralegal contacted me right away. The office has been in touch with me and genuinely concerned about my injuries. This firm was on top of my case. I highly recommend them. Please call The Barnes Firm.

My attorney and his Assistant helped me through my injury case. It was a real pleasure having their legal advice available to me in a time when I couldn’t think straight or even figure out what to do after my accident injury.
