Pharmaceutical Settlements Cases
Pharmaceutical giants, as financially able as they are, are not stronger than the legal system. Time and time again stories surface where pharmaceutical companies knowingly withheld crucial information about adverse reactions from medical trials. It is no surprise that juries award plaintiffs with pharmaceutical settlements after having experienced unmeasurable injuries.
You might feel that you are out of your depth, but know that the law is on your side. Here are some examples that led to big pharmaceutical settlement payouts:
Breast Growth Caused by Risperdal
Risperdal causes gynecomastia, which is breast growth or swelling in young adult men. It is a side effect that has been associated with the antipsychotic drug Risperdal. Johnson & Johnson Inc. did not warn Risperdal users of this. Breast growth in young men, even in a mild form, can have severe psychological consequences.
Nicholas Murray started taking Risperdal when he was 9 years old because he suffered from autism. Having developed breasts 10 years later in 2013, he started a pharmaceutical lawsuit against Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. After a lengthy trial, a jury awarded a pharmaceutical settlement of $8 billion in October 2019, which was reduced to $6.8 million in January 2020.
Compulsive-Behaviour Caused by Antipsychotic Medication
Abilify treats schizophrenia and mania, for many of the innocent Abilify takers, this will also cause psychological side-effects. Giving people compulsive-behavior, leading them to gamble, overeat, spend money, compulsive use of video games, and pornography. And sadly even causing Abilify users to commit suicide. It is to no surprise that the manufacturers Bristol-Myers Squibb Company and Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co. faced over 2,600 lawsuits, in relation to their schizophrenia and mania medication drug Abilify. Confidential settlements were awarded to thousands of victims that sued for Abilify side effects in various mass litigations across the country.
Birth Control Pills Causing Strokes and Blood Clots
Birth control pills are known to cause blood clots, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism strokes, and even heart attacks. Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals Inc. has already faced 18,000 pharmaceutical lawsuits for side effects of their birth control pills, Yaz and Yasmin. They agreed on pharmaceutical settlements of $2 billion for blood clot injuries, $21.5 million to settle 7,200 gallbladder injury cases, $56.9 million to settle 1,200 heart attack and stroke cases.
Essure Coil Puncture Organs
Essure, a permanent type of birth control, is a coil that is implanted into the fallopian tubes. They are known to dislodge, causing severe pain and bleeding in the surrounding tissue, and as a consequence piercing organs.
A notable case is of Stephanie Bailey, she experienced numbness in her extremities, severe migraines, and pain in her pelvic area, caused by the Essure device. To remove the device she had to undergo a hysterectomy and subsequently died.
In 2018, Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals Inc faced over 1 6,000 lawsuits for Essure, as a direct consequence, decided to phase out the permanent birth control device.
Death by Blood-Thinners
The victims of the blood-thinning drug Xarelto suffered catastrophic injuries. Xarelto caused permanent bleeding leading to severe injuries and as a direct consequence lead many plaintiffs to lose their lives. Joint-owners Bayer AG and Johnson & Johnson faced over 25,000 lawsuits and agreed on a $775 million pharmaceutical settlement. Regardless of this Johnson & Johson believe Xarelto to be safe and thus the drug remains in circulation. Xarelto sales were $6.54 billion for the two companies in 2018.
Stroke & Heart Attack Twice as Likely with Vioxx
Clinical trials show that strokes and heart attacks are twice as likely to happen in people who take Vioxx. It is therefore no surprise that Vioxx, a painkiller for arthritis, was withdrawn from the market. As Merck’s 2nd best selling product, Voixx made $2.5 billion a year. Merck accepted to pay $4.85 billion to approximately 27,000 pharmaceutical lawsuits.
Many studies show links with increased cardiac events and testosterone therapy products. One trial was forced to even stop as the cardiovascular events increased significantly in the treatment group with older men. Testosterone gel users not only have a higher risk of heart attacks, but also strokes, blood clots, and embolisms. Nevertheless, this did not motivate the manufacturers to inform the users.
Alongside this, they have even been accused of illegal off-label marketing of their product for low sex drive or fatigue, both not approved by the FDA. There are over 25,000 lawsuits against Pfizer Inc., Eli Lilly & Co., and AbbVie Inc. In 2018, Endo Pharmaceuticals and GlaxoSmithKline agreed to settle all remaining Testosterone lawsuits with $200 million over 1,300 cases.
Diabetes Drug Causes Cardiac Death
Avandia is a type 2 Diabetic drug that adversely also causes increased heart attacks, liver failure, and cardiac death. GlaxoSmithKline withheld this information and has reserved $3,4 billion for pharmaceutical settlements over the Avandia type 2 Diabetes drug.
Reglan Causes Involuntary Movements
Reglan, Maxolon, and Octamide are brand names for Metoclopramide, a prescription drug for gastrointestinal disorders and nausea. The drug causes tardive dyskinesia, which is an involuntary neurological movement disorder.
Tardive dyskinesia symptoms:
- Lip-smacking, puckering and or pursing
- Involuntary movements of the fingers, arms, and legs
- Rapid eye blinking
In 2017 the two manufacturers of Reglan, Watson Laboratories, and Teva Pharmaceuticals agreed to resolve over 1,000 cases with a global settlement, the amount remains undisclosed.
Do not let these pharmaceutical companies get away with their injustices, you are entitled to get damages for the pain and suffering you endured. Many good-faith citizens have trusted these pharmaceutical products for years and even household name products like Johnson & Johnson’s Talcum Powder have adverse effects and failed to warn consumers of the higher risk of ovarian cancer.
