What Compensations Can You Expect from Your Actos Bladder Lawsuit?
Wednesday, October 12, 2011

Dozens of people around the country have filed Actos lawsuits after they developed bladder cancer as a result of the drug use. Any person who has developed bladder cancer after using Actos for some time may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit.

An Actos bladder cancer lawsuit can include a number of damages that compensate victims for their losses. In most cases, a victim who files a bladder cancer lawsuit may seek compensation for the following damages:

• Compensation for medical expenses: These can include both current and future medical expenses. Depending on the type and location of bladder cancer, the stage of the cancer, how quickly the cancer has spread, and the prognosis, a victim who suffers from this cancer can expect hefty medical expenses in the months and years ahead. A number of other factors including the person's age, and general health may also affect a person's long term prognosis.

• Lost wages

• Loss of future wages: These may be a little more difficult to calculate, but your Actos bladder cancer lawyer will be able to determine the value of your lost future earnings based on your current earnings as well as your expected lifespan without the cancer.

• Pain and suffering

• Loss of consortium: Spouses can also claim loss of consortium, because of the loss of conjugal relations. Consortium can refer to conjugal relations, affection and companionship. Bladder cancer surgery has been found to contribute to erectile dysfunction.

Spouses of persons, who have died from bladder cancer brought on by Actos use, may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit, claiming compensation for loss of affection, companionship and consortium, funeral and burial expenses and loss of household services. Apart from these damages, your lawsuit can also claim attorney fees, legal fees and other costs associated with filing an Actos injury lawsuit.
