Why File an Invokana Lawsuit?
The diabetic drug Invokana works by triggering the release of excess blood glucose through the kidneys and eventually expelling that excess glucose from the body through urination. It is intended for use in Type 2 diabetics who have difficulty controlling blood sugar levels through exercise and diet. However, the drug has been linked with diabetic ketoacidosis and other serious health problems. These are just a few of the reasons you should consider filing an Invokana lawsuit if you have been harmed after using the medication.
Reasons to Take Action
One of the biggest reasons to file an Invokana lawsuit: medical expenses. Invokana has not only been linked to diabetic ketoacidosis – which often requires hospitalization – it has been associated with kidney problems as well. These issues can obviously lead to staggeringly high medical bills.
Another reason to take action: lost income. You have more than likely missed a great deal of work due to the complications you have suffered. You may be eligible for the wages you have lost during your time away from work, as well as compensation for the loss of future wages if you cannot get back on the job.
One last reason: pain and suffering. There is a very good chance that you have had to go through a great deal of pain and suffering. Complications linked to Invokana are not only dangerous, they can also result in substantial misery – both physical and psychological. Filing an Invokana lawsuit may help you obtain compensation for the pain and suffering you have experienced.
