Harmful Drugs Law
Should I settle my Actos lawsuit?
A majority of lawsuits are resolved by settlement agreements. However, there are consequences to settling a lawsuit. For example, if you settle your lawsuit against Takeda Pharmaceuticals and later discover that your injuries are more harmful than you initially believed, you may be prevented from filing a later lawsuit against the manufacturer. This is because of the legal doctrines of Collateral Estoppel and Res Judicata. Before making the decision to settle, speak to a qualified attorney about your legal options. An attorney with experience representing Actos victims will help you determine whether a settlement agreement will best serve your legal interests.
