The drug Multaq, produced by Sanofi-Aventis, was approved in 2009 to treat patients suffering from abnormal heart rhythms. It carried a warning of an increased risk of causing heart failure.
About a half million prescriptions were filled and additionally consumers were not warned of the overall health risks. Many Multaq users suffered from medical problems such as liver failure, liver damage, heart attack, a heart beat lower than 50 beats per minute and stroke.
If you used Multaq and experienced any of these health issues you may have a case against the drugmaker and may join a class action lawsuit.
Yes. It is in your best interest to protect your rights. You should consult with an attorney specializing in Multaq cases. Law firms handling Multaq cases have over time built a body of information that may be beneficial to your case.
An attorney consultation will determine if you have a valid case. Most attorneys provide their consultation for free and many attorneys will work on a contingency basis. This means that they are paid a percentage of the monetary damages you are awarded, if any.
Do not delay. You have a limited amount of time beginning from the time you were harmed to file your lawsuit because of the statute of limitations. At the consultation, your attorney will tell you how much time you have to file a lawsuit before the statute of limitations prevents you from suing.
Your attorney will build your case by:
Your attorney will write your complaint and file it with the court clerk. As your case progresses, your attorney will develop evidence, take depositions under oath from witnesses, make certain motions, respond to motions filed by the drugmaker, and defend against the drugmaker from introducing particular evidence trial.
According to statistics about 95 percent of cases are settled without trial. This results from your attorney aggressively negotiating with the opposition for a defined amount of money. Once an offer is made, it is your choice to accept the deal, negotiate for more money, or go to a jury trial that determines your damage award.
