Individuals who were injured by Janumet (sitagliptin / metformin) may qualify for a Janumet class action lawsuit or an individual personal injury lawsuit. The Clark Firm, LLP is currently evaluating potential lawsuits from people who suffered pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer, thyroid cancer, and more. We are concerned because the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has published multiple warnings about the sitagliptin in Janumet, but many people may have been unaware of these risks.

Janumet Class Action Lawsuit
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm. However, we have decided against pursuing a Janumet class action lawsuit in Texas.

Our lawyers can help you maximize your individual recovery by fighting for your right to compensation, including:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages or decreased income
- Future medical care
- Decreased quality of life
- Wrongful death of your family member
What is a Class Action Lawsuit?
There are some advantages to filing or joining a Janumet class action lawsuit, but there can also be disadvantages. When you join a class action, your claim is consolidated with claims from many other people with similar injuries. One person is chosen to be the “class representative,” and the merits of his or her case determines the value of any potential settlement. The settlement is usually split evenly among the class members. Unfortunately, one major disadvantage is that you may receive compensation that is significantly lower than your actual damages. Once you agree to a class action lawsuit settlement, you may have limited options for seeking additional compensation in an individual personal injury lawsuit.
Individual Janumet Lawsuits or a Janumet Class Action Lawsuit?
When most people think about a large, complex drug injury litigation, the first thing they think of is a Janumet class action lawsuit. However, in the United States, when hundreds or thousands of people are injured by a medication, the litigation is usually resolved in a Multi-District Litigation (MDL). An MDL centralizes class action lawsuits and personal injury lawsuits from many state courts into one federal court, under one judge. Unlike a class action, individual lawsuits remain independent. If the plaintiff does not agree to a settlement, the case can be remanded back to the state court where it was originally filed.
