Mounting Lawsuits Against the Makers of Avandia

What is Avandia? Avandia (Rosiglitazone) is an anti-diabetic drug in the thiazolidinedione class of drugs. It works as an insulin sensitizer, by binding to the PPAR receptors in fat cells and making the cells more responsive to insulin.

If you have suffered from side effects after taking Avandia, then you definitely need to find and talk to an Avandia attorney. With an average settlement of 50,000 per case being paid out on these types of lawsuits, you may be entitled to some serious compensation. The percentage of cases that are being settled is extremely high, so you shouldn't worry about wasting your time in a needless lawsuit. The odds are in your favor. So, if you actually have experienced negative health as a result of taking Avandia, then you stand a very good chance of being compensated for your suffering if you choose to take action.

“The Guardian” has estimated that the total payout that results from Avandia related lawsuits could get as high as 6 billion dollars by the time the fallout from this drug's prescription are concluded. There is a long list of Avandia side effects which could qualify you for joining a lawsuit against GlaxoSmithKline. Heart failure and heart attacks, strokes, deep vein thrombosis, allergic reactions, hypoglycemia, breathing problems, anemia, lung infections, pulmonary embolism, and liver failure are all symptoms which can qualify you for a lawsuit based on side effects you've suffered as a result of your Avandia prescription.

The best advice that you can get about this kind of lawsuit is to find a lawyer that works on a contingency basis. Anyone that has needed legal aid for any reason knows just how expensive a lawyer's help can be. Many people don't pursue these types of cases because they are afraid of how much the required legal help could end up costing them. However, the truth is that many legal offices won't charge you any money up front for this type of case. Personal injury lawyers often work on this basis, especially when they have larger ongoing suits that they want people to join, like those existing against Avandia. They won't charge you a penny until your case is won.
