A Media Investigation Uncovered a Secret About Actemra
Actemra (Tocilizumab) is a prescription medication used to treat several types of rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
Like other types of drugs for RA, Actemra comes with some known risks. According to the American College of Rheumatology—and the drug's own warnings—Actemra can cause a significant weakening of the body's own immune system. This impairs its ability to stop other infections, leaving you susceptible to rare and serious infections, viruses, and other contagious diseases. You could require tuberculosis testing and monitoring if you take this drug.
However, there are allegations this drug comes with an even more serious risk: patients taking Actemra seem to be at a higher risk of having a heart attack or stroke. In an investigation into the allegations by Boston Globe Media's Stat News, the media outlet discovered more than 1,100 reported deaths associated with the drug. There are numerous reports from doctors saying they believe Actemra played a significant role in their patients' deaths from cardiovascular and pulmonary complications.
Let Tosi Law LLP Help You Understand Your Rights
When you meet with a member of our team, we can identify the product in question, when you took it, and if you suffered a complication that may allow you to pursue compensation. Our Actemra lawsuit lawyers can explain your legal options, including filing an individual lawsuit, looking into pursuing multidistrict litigation status, or joining a mass tort already in progress.
We have decades of experience in mass tort law and are passionate about fighting for a just recovery for our clients. If a corporation acted negligently and you suffered serious, life-threatening complications or a member of your family passed away, the company needs to be held accountable.
This Case May Support Multidistrict Litigation
As of August 2019, there is no multidistrict litigation pending against Genentech related to Actemra complications. However, the case is still new. The team from Tosi Law LLP believes there are enough victims of this type of complication to possibly support a mass tort in the future.
Call us now at 888-312-2518 if you believe you may be eligible to take legal action.
If your doctor prescribed Actemra for your arthritis and you believe this played a role in your cardiovascular or pulmonary concerns including heart attack or stroke, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the drug's manufacturer. This could allow you to recoup damages that include:
- Related medical treatment costs
- Ongoing and future care costs related to your condition
- Lost wages and diminished earning capacity
- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
If a member of your immediate family passed away from a heart attack, stroke, or other pulmonary complications after taking Actemra or another rheumatoid arthritis drug, you may be eligible to pursue wrongful death compensation by holding the pharmaceutical company liable in court, as well. A member of our team can review your case and put a strategy in place.
We believe in holding negligent corporations liable for their bad behavior. Often, the best way to do this is to take legal action against them. This also allows us to pursue damages for our clients.
