Reporting annual sales of over $92 million, Prevacid (Lansoprazole) is one of the best-selling over-the-counter (OTC) digestive medications available in the United States drug market.
Although effective at soothing the symptoms of acid reflux, otherwise known as heartburn, it has been discovered that PPI drugs can trigger the development of several serious side effects without their risks being disclosed to consumers.
Of the side effects associated with Prevacid, the most dangerous are often cited as kidney complications and dementia, but may also include the following:
Are Prevacid Lawsuits Being Awarded Settlements?
As more information regarding the dangers of this drug have been disclosed to the public in the past decade, consumers have begun to discover that they may have developed health issues due to their use of the drug. These discoveries have led to many current and former consumers of the drug to begin investigating the potential of filing dangerous drug lawsuits against drug manufacturer, Takeda Pharmaceuticals.
While lawsuits for other PPI drugs have been filed with some being consolidated under multi-district litigation, Prevacid lawsuits have yet to enter a consolidation phase. However, Prevacid consumers can still contact a dangerous drug attorney to begin the process of filing a lawsuit against Takeda Pharmaceuticals.
With Prevacid lawsuits not yet entering major consolidation phases, no settlements have been publicly offered by Takeda Pharmaceuticals. Although no settlements have been offered, the nature of the drug and its complications means that any future settlements will likely be substantial.
As more lawsuits are filed, citing kidney complications or any other related side effects, the likelihood of Takeda issuing a settlement offer will increase.
Because Prevacid lawsuits have yet to enter major consolidation or settlement stages, it is difficult to estimate what potential settlement figures could be. However, the nature of the lawsuits means that future settlements will likely provide compensation for the following:
- Pain and Suffering
- Medical Bills
- Lost Wages
- Wrongful Death
How Can I Get A Prevacid Kidney Complication Settlement?
As of August 2016, Takeda Pharmaceuticals has yet to offer any Prevacid lawsuit plaintiffs a settlement offer.
With kidney complication lawsuits just recently moving past the investigatory stage of the legal process, it may be some time before plaintiffs begin fielding settlement offers.
In order to maximize an individuals ability to receive a future Prevacid settlement, it is recommended that victims begin the preceding lawsuit filing process as soon as possible.
In doing so, victims will be able to take advantage of a greater degree of flexibility and investigation time before any settlement decisions need to be made.
Once a Prevacid dangerous drug lawsuit is filed, a plaintiff will be eligible to receive and accept future Takeda settlement offers.
