Invokana Side Effects

Getting Help

If you believe that Invokana caused your injuries or the death of a loved one, you may be able to recover substantial compensation for your injuries. Pharmaceutical companies have a duty to warn doctors and patients of the potential risks involved when taking their drugs so that doctors can properly advise their patients and patients can make an informed decision as to whether they are willing to take the risk.

Failure to warn is, in itself, a defect.

An experienced defective drug attorney can help you and your family recoup your losses and future losses such as medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. You have a limited amount of time to take legal action, or you will lose your right to compensation. Please, do not wait until it is too late for you and your family.
