What is Invokana?
Invokana is an SGLT2 inhibitor, a prescription medication for the management of diabetes that is used to regulate blood sugar levels in adults who suffer from Type 2 diabetes. Invokana works by instructing the kidneys to move sugar out of the body and into the urine stream. In this way, it is doing the job of insulin, which is the natural product that helps your body to remove sugar and that also regulates the amount of glucose in your blood. It is not approved for or meant to treat patients who have Type 1 diabetes or children who have diabetes.
What are the Risks and Side Effects I Should Discuss with My Arizona Invokana Attorney?
If you were the victim of significant side effects and complications resulting from the use of Invokana, it is important that you discuss all of the side effects you experience with your Arizona Invokana attorney. Although they may not seem relevant to you, every change that you experienced that impacted your quality of life is important to you, your attorney, and to your legal case. Some of the risks associated with use of Invokana include ketoacidosis, dehydration, low blood sugar levels if combined with other medications for the management and control of diabetes, high cholesterol, kidney complications, and more. Additionally, some patients may experience additional risks including coma or death related to ketoacidosis, cardiovascular problems, increased risk of breaking or fracturing bones, decreased levels of mineral density in the bones, and increased risk of damage to the kidneys or kidney failure.
Who is Responsible for My Injuries and Complications in My Arizona Invokana Lawsuit?
Drug makers and their distributors have a legal duty to keep the public and medical professionals well-informed about the risks and complications associated with use of their medical products, and if you did not receive appropriate information regarding the risks associated with taking Invokana, these groups may be responsible for your complications and the resulting injuries and damages. Working with a qualified Arizona product liability attorney is the best way to determine who is responsible for your injuries. Johnson & Johnson had a responsibility to inform the public and medical professionals about issues and complications with Invokana and may be responsible for your injuries and complications.
What Compensation Can I Receive for My Invokana Injuries in Arizona?
Working with the right Arizona attorney is the best way to determine what kind of compensation you may be able to receive for your Invokana complications and injuries. Every case is different and the outcome, including settlements and compensation, will be different for every qualified case and victim. For most victims, there is compensation available for medical expenses, personal pain and suffering, pain and suffering felt by your family, loss of income and employment, inability to hold down a job at a future time, and more. In most cases, victims can expect to settle with the manufacturer within one to two years, although the timeline may be longer and it is important to be prepared for whatever timeline it takes to get a result.
