Januvia Lawsuits

If you were prescribed Januvia for Type 2 diabetes and have been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, you may be eligible to seek compensation by filing a lawsuit against Merck & Co. Studies have shown that Januvia and other similar drugs may be linked to an increased risk of pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer — two dangerous and potentially fatal conditions.

Pancreatic cancer is believed to be one of the most dangerous forms of cancer because it usually isn't detected until the cancer has reached an advanced stage and is difficult to treat. Signs of the cancer usually don't show up until the cancer has spread. When they do appear, they include pain in the upper abdomen that spreads to the back, jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes), weight loss and loss of appetite.

Patients taking Januvia should seek medical attention right away if they experience any of these symptoms, especially severe abdominal pain that radiates to the back.

How a Lawsuit Can Help You

If you are diagnosed with cancer and are suffering from its symptoms, we understand the last thing you want to do is undergo a long drawn out legal battle. But, that's where our attorneys come in. We are currently investigating possible lawsuits on behalf of Januvia and Byetta users who were diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Our lawyers serve as advocates for our clients so they can focus on medical treatment and learning to cope with the challenges ahead.

A Januvia lawsuit can help you recover the compensation you need so you can focus on your health and get the best medical treatment possible. Compensation can help alleviate some of the stress you may be feeling over how you are going to meet your financial responsibilities and how you are going to continue to support your family while you are sick.

Find Out If You Qualify for a Lawsuit

To find out if you qualify for a Januvia lawsuit, it is simple. Contact our lawyers for a consultation — we will evaluate your circumstances to determine if you qualify and will let you know how we can help. Questions we may ask include:

  • When were you prescribed Januvia?
  • How long did you take the medication?

  • How are you feeling now? What treatments have you had?

Another important factor is if you had any other risk factors such as a history of smoking or alcohol abuse. After we determine if you are eligible to file a claim, we will explain all your rights and options and will guide you through the legal process as quickly as possible.
