If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with acute pancreatitis or pancreatic cancer from Victoza, you may be eligible to file a Victoza lawsuit against the Danish drugmaker Novo Nordisk. Filing a Victoza lawsuit enables individuals and families harmed by Victoza pancreas problems to seek compensation for damages resulting from Victoza including medical bills, lost income, pain, suffering, and loss.
Existing Victoza lawsuit claims assert that Novo Nordisk officials knew of - or reasonably should have known of - the risks posed by its leading drug Victoza for pancreas problems, yet never warned the American public or the medical community. In one study, patients taking Victoza were 3.7 times for likely to develop acute pancreatitis than persons who were taking a different diabetes drug. A peer-reviewed study published in 2013 in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) detected increased rates of both acute pancreatitis and pre-cancerous cell growth in the pancreas of persons taking Victoza.
The safety of Victoza was questioned long before the first Victoza lawsuit was filed; Victoza received initial FDA approval for regulating blood glucose levels in Type 2 diabetics against the recommendation of three safety experts on the FDA approvals committee. Novo Nordisk has marketed the drug aggressively; its illegal marketing practices were the subject of a 2017 Justice Department lawsuit that culminated in a $58 million settlement. Critics say the company knowingly prioritized profits over consumer safety, and many Americans have suffered as a result. Victoza garnered $2 billion in sales in 2014 alone.
Filing a Victoza lawsuit against Novo Nordisk is the only way to secure compensation for medical bills, lost time at work, pain, suffering and loss that have resulted from Victoza pancreatic cancer or other pancreas problems. If you or a loved one was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer or acute pancreatitis while taking Victoza, you may qualify to file a Victoza lawsuit to recover compensation for damages you have suffered as a result of this dangerous drug.

Many persons who have experienced acute pancreatitis or pancreatic cancer wonder if filing a Victoza lawsuit will result in meaningful compensation for their family. Filing a Victoza pancreatic cancer lawsuit is not the same as joining a class action lawsuit in which those who file a claim can expect only a small, symbolic settlement. On the contrary, lawyers handling Victoza lawsuit claims believe persons and family members of persons who have developed pancreatic cancer or acute pancreatitis as a result of using Victoza may be entitled to significant compensation. While each new Victoza pancreatic cancer lawsuit will be consolidated as part of the existing Multi-District Litigation (MDL), each claim will be handled on its own merit and compensation will be determined based on the degree of suffering of each plaintiff.
We will represent all persons involved in a Victoza lawsuit for acute pancreatitis or pancreatic cancer on a contingency basis, meaning our lawyers never charge legal fees unless we win compensation in your case.
