Who is eligible to make a diabetes drug infection claim or file a genital infection lawsuit?
Any person, or family member of a person, who developed a severe genital infection while taking a drug for Type 2 diabetes, may be eligible to make a claim by filing a diabetes drug infection lawsuit against pharmaceutical manufacturers. Known as Fournier’s gangrene or necrotizing fasciitis, this incredibly rare and severe genital infection destroys any tissues it reaches. Patients may be left permanently disfigured or may encounter life-threatening complications, at no fault of their own.

Who is at risk for the severe genital infection known as Fournier’s gangrene?
The FDA recently determined incidents of genital infections have been linked to a certain class of diabetes drug known as SGLT2 inhibitors. Prescribed commonly to patients suffering from Type 2 diabetes, these medications have proven effective at regulating blood sugar levels. Any person taking one of the thirteen drugs listed on the FDA Diabetes Drug Infection Warning may be at risk for developing a severe genital infection. People of all ages and both sexes may fall victim to the genital infection; the average onset of the infection is 9 months after initiating the medication. Type 2 diabetics taking Invokana, Invokamet, Invokamet XR, Farxiga, Xigduo XR, Qtern, Jardiance, Glyxambi, Synjardy, Synjardy XR, Steglatro, Segluromet, or Stelujan who experience pain, swelling, or redness in the genital area and develop a fever of 100.4 or greater should seek immediate medical attention.

We’re not the type of people who sue; do we really need to file a lawsuit?
If a member of your family suffered a serious injury or health problem from a defective product or dangerous drug, long-term, or even lifelong, medical care may be required. This could be incredibly expensive and since medical costs are continually rising may be largely unknown at the time of settlement or trial. If a member of your family died due to a defective product or dangerous drug, no amount of money can undo that wrong. It is our fervent hope that every defective products, drug or other medication lawsuit we file can serve to make the manufacturer take note of the loss and pain its product has caused. When that fails to make a company take action in the form of a product recall, greater warnings about its use and ultimately making safer products, we rely on their profit motivation to make them do the right thing. Unfortunately, in all too many cases it is only the fear of lawsuits and large settlements and verdicts that makes a company become a better corporate citizen.
Are there diabetes drug infection lawsuit time limits that may apply to my case?
Most states do have diabetes genital infection lawsuit time limits; however, the majority of all claims related to a Type 2 diabetes drug infection will fall within those time limits if you contact an attorney in the near future. For specific time limits for your claim, please fill out the form at right and one of our attorneys will contact you as quickly as possible, usually within the hour.
Aren’t most drug and products liability lawsuits just class action lawsuits where the plaintiff receives very little money?
No, genital infections lawsuits for diabetes drugs will not become a class action. National diabetes drug infection lawsuit claims will likely be consolidated as MDL, or Multi-District Litigation, a legal procedure that organizes the processing of many similar cases yet guarantees the compensation each plaintiff will receive is commensurate with the specific injuries and damages they have suffered. This process is reserved for circumstances where a group of plaintiffs shares a common complaint that constitutes severe harm; in comparison, class action claims general concern lesser degrees of harm and as such as often symbolic. MDL is a process that allows plaintiffs to seek the significant compensation they deserve, while holding the corporate entity accountable for damage its products have caused.
