Designed by Sanofi-Aventis and approved by the FDA in 2009, Multaq (dronedarone) is prescribed to stabilize heart beating in those who suffer from irregular heart rhythm.
The drug has been the recipient of multiple FDA safety communications as well as two active black box warnings as formerly undisclosed side effects have been discovered in hundreds of users. Of these now known side effects, the most prominent include:
- Acute liver failure
- Interstitial lung disease (ILD)
- Sudden cardiac death
- Blood vessel inflammation
- Systemic embolism (blood clot)
- Hospitalization for heart failure
- Pulmonary toxicity
Are Multaq Class Action Lawsuits Currently Active?
As of May 2016, a class action lawsuit against Sanofi-Aventis on behalf of those who have suffered health complications stemming from a prescription to Multaq has yet to be formed.
Looking to past dangerous drug cases in which lawsuits were brought against large pharmaceutical companies for similar undisclosed side effects, it is highly likely that a class action lawsuit will be created in the future.
A class action lawsuit against Sanofi-Aventis has not yet been created due to the nature of the information that has been provided to the public.
While reports of dangerous side effects were active prior to 2011, it wasn’t until the FDA issued their first Multaq black box warning that lawsuits were filed in notable numbers.
Since 2011, there has been a steady stream of information regarding Multaq and its relation to health complications. With recent information finally providing the public with a full picture of Multaq’s dangers, lawsuits are just now beginning to near numbers where a class action lawsuit could be considered.
In the event that a class action lawsuit against Sanofi-Aventis goes active, those bringing cases against the drug manufacturer will have greater flexibility in determining what legal action best serves their unique needs.
How Can I Join A Multaq Class Action Lawsuit?
If you intend to pursue a class action lawsuit against Sanofi-Aventis once one is formed, it is suggested that you begin the lawsuit filing process as soon as possible.
There is strict criteria that must be met in order to be deemed eligible to file a Multaq dangerous drug lawsuit. The most basic of this criteria includes:
- Severe liver failure or injury, requiring hospitalization
- Liver transplant
- Death with liver failure — identified as primary or secondary cause of death
- No pre-exisiting history of severe liver injury or hepatic dysfunction
- Concurrent use of Multaq at the time of diagnosis
We will work with you and our expert medical staff to review your medical records to conclusively determine that your health complications were a result of a Multaq prescription.
In the event that a class action lawsuit is formed after you have filed your lawsuit, we will begin the process of meeting all legal requirements to join the class action. If our legal network and yourself determines that a class action is not the most beneficial legal pursuit to secure a substantial settlement, we will continue to work as a standalone case.
