Multaq (dronedarone) was developed to maintain a safe heart beat rhythm in those who suffered from irregular heart beat and was approved as such by the U.S Food and Drug Administration in 2009.
In 2011, the FDA issued a warning to medical professionals that severe liver injuries were a prominent health complication associated with the use of Multaq. As a result, Multaq would be required to carry a black box warning detailing the severity of drug induced liver complications.
Have Multaq Settlements Been Awarded?
Due to the recent filing nature of most Multaq dangerous drug lawsuits, drug manufacturer Sanofi-Aventis has yet to publicly issue any settlement offers to active plaintiffs.
However, as more lawsuits are filed, it will become increasingly likely that Sanofi-Aventis will begin issuing settlement offers to Multaq dangerous drug plaintiffs.
If the amount of Multaq dangerous drug lawsuits sees a significant increase, it is possible that a class action lawsuit will become active. If this does not occur, there will be a possibility for a Multaq lawsuit multidistrict litigation to be assigned.
Oftentimes, either of these occurrences increase the chances of receiving significant settlement offers. This is due to drug manufacturers desire to avoid risky public trials incurring additional financial burden and negative awareness.
Once settlement offers are issued, it is likely that they will provide compensation for the following Multaq-related damages:
- Costs of lawsuit incurred
- Compensatory and general damages
- Punitive damages
- Special and incidental damages, including medical expenses and lost wages
- Loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, and disability
- Wrongful death damages, if person died due to this dangerous drug
The nature of the allegations against Sanofi-Aventis — neglecting to disclose dangerous drug risks to medical professionals and consumers — could lead to a desire from the manufacturer to quickly settle cases to avoid negative headlines regarding their conduct.
