Jardiance and Diabetic Ketoacidosis
Jardiance, also known as empagliflozin, is a new treatment for type-2 diabetes that controls blood-sugar levels by helping the kidneys remove excess sugar through urine.
Jardiance is a sodium glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor. All drugs in the SGLT2 inhibitor class were linked to a risk of diabetic ketoacidosis in an FDA Safety Communication published in May 2015.
The FDA warns patients on Jardiance to seek emergency medical attention if they experience symptoms of ketoacidosis, such as:
- Difficulty breathing
- Nausea and vomiting
- Abdominal pain
- Unusual fatigue or sleepiness
What is the problem?
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but our Texas trial attorneys are not filing a Jardiance class action. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits and seeking justice on behalf of people who developed severe side effects, such as:
About Class Actions
There can be advantages to class actions in certain circumstances, such as seeking reimbursement after a product is falsely marketed. It wouldn’t make financial sense for everyone to file an individual lawsuit. By consolidating lawsuits into one legal claim, members of a class action can collectively seek a jury award or settlement.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Jardiance Class Action
Class actions can have disadvantages for plaintiffs with very serious injuries. Their case might be lumped together with other cases involving less-serious injuries. Members might have to accept “low-ball” settlements with high attorneys’ fees.
Our lawyers file individual lawsuits because we believe in holding drug-makers accountable for selling defective medications. We provide personal legal representation to each of our clients and focus on seeking justice on their behalf. By filing a lawsuit, you could receive compensation for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost income, permanent injuries or disability, and more.
