Developed by AstraZeneca and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2009, Onglyza (saxagliptin) was designed to control blood sugar in those suffering from type two diabetes.
Beginning in 2011, studies have indicated that Onglyza may carry a previously undisclosed health risk – heart attacks. Initial signs of a heart attack include:
- Chest Discomfort
- Nausea, Indigestion, Heartburn or Stomach Pain
- Pain that Spreads to the Arm
- Dizziness or Lightheadedness
- Throat or Jaw Pain
- Getting Exhausted Easily
- Persistent Cough
- Swollen Legs, Feet or Ankles
- Irregular Heartbeat
Have Settlements For Onglyza Lawsuits Been Offered?
With information detailing Onglyza’s health risks still being released to the public, no settlement offers have yet to be publicly offered or accepted.
As more potential plaintiffs are exposed to information that give them confidence in filing a dangerous device lawsuit, the chance of settlement offers being fielded will rise.
FDA safety communications on the dangers of Onglyza have been released as recently as April 2016.
It is likely that in the near future, enough lawsuits will be filed against AstraZeneca to justify exploration into a class action lawsuit or multidistrict litigation.
The existence of either of these entities increases the likelihood of substantial settlement offers being issued.
This is rooted in the likely desire of AstraZeneca to avoid a financially and P.R. risky public trial.
Am I Eligible To Get An Onglyza Settlement?
To become eligible to receive an Onglyza dangerous drug settlement to recover compensation for financial and physical damages incurred due to to Onglyza use, you must begin the process of filing a dangerous drug lawsuit.
An extensive investigation into you medical records and analysis of relevant state deadlines will determine if you can proceed with legal action against AstraZeneca.
To effectively complete these preliminary processes of filing a lawsuit, you must have a skilled attorney representing you.
The difference between a top-tier attorney and one who does not possess the combination of skills, experience, and resources needed could be the difference between a substantial settlement and losing your case.
It is important to begin your legal process as soon as possible to afford yourself flexibility in working around deadlines and other legal hurdles.
The additional flexibility will also allow you to work with your attorney to better position your case to receive an acceptable settlement offer.
