What Is This Lawsuit About?
Lawsuits allege that Janssen / Johnson & Johnson, manufacturer of Invokana, a popular Type Two Diabetes drug failed to warn both the medical community and consumers of serious potential side effects including heart attacks, kidney disease, and ketoacidosis.
Ketoacidosis is a serious condition, usually requiring hospitalization due to the possibility of fatal brain swelling, coma, and severe dehydration. It’s further been alleged that had the public been properly warned, doctors and patients may have chosen something other than Invokana for diabetes management or at the very least, monitored for health issues more frequently.
Lawsuit Accuses Johnson & Johnson, Janssen Pharmaceuticals of Failure to Adequately Research Invokana and Failure to Warn of Health Risks
In a lawsuit filed on July 3, 2017, plaintiff Martha Williams of Tennessee accuses Janssen Pharmaceuticals and parent company Johnson & Johnson of failing to adequately research all potential health risks of its new generation diabetes drug Invokana as well as failure to warn the public and medical community of such risks. The lawsuit blames an onset of acute renal failure, a urinary tract infection, dehydration, and hypokalemia suffered by Williams just one month after starting the medication.
“Consumers of Invokana and their physicians relied on the Defendants’ false representations and were misled as to the drug’s safety, and as a result have suffered injuries including diabetic ketoacidosis, kidney failure, sepsis, cardiovascular problems, stroke, and the life-threatening complications thereof,” the lawsuit states. “The development of Plaintiff’s injuries was preventable and resulted directly from Defendants’ failure and refusal to conduct proper safety studies, failure to properly assess and publicize alarming safety signals, suppression of information revealing serious and life-threatening risks, willful and wanton failure to provide adequate instructions, and willful misrepresentations concerning the nature and safety of Invokana.”
