Serious and life-threatening side effects from prescription medicines is a very common thing a lot of people are not aware of. Take for example the case of Uloric, a prescribed medicine to treat gout disease. The drug has serious implications on heart health which can result in many serious side effects to the cardiovascular health leading to an untimely death.
Today, more and more Uloric users are coming and reporting side effects from Uloric such as heart attack, cardio ischemia, stroke and more. Since the manufacturer of the drug failed to warn people of the serious complications that arise from regular use of this drug, there have also been many reported Uloric lawsuits.
If you believe you have suffered a serious side effect from Uloric, you are entitled to full compensation. However, to get the deserved compensation, you need to take many steps including hiring an experienced lawyer to file a lawsuit against the company which makes this medicine.
Before you file a lawsuit for Uloric side effects, you need to have sufficient information and proof that you were indeed misled by the company into taking this drug. Below are some of the most common severe side effects of the drug.
Severe Side Effects of Uloric
Uloric is known to cause minor side effects like headaches, nausea, and others. But did you know that regular use of the drug over a long period of time can seriously damage your heart-health? This is what the manufacturer of the drug has been hiding from the general public as well as government bodies.
But in 2012, a whistleblower case against the company revealed the truth that the drugmaker was indeed hiding the many severe side effects of the drug. This triggered the FDA to recognize the side effects and now the drugmaker has to put a black box label warning people of the major side effects.
However, the change came to effect in 2018, which means that if you are already suffering from severe side effects of Uloric without knowing, you are entitled to complete compensation. Here are the side effects.
- Heart Attack
- Deep Vein Thrombosis
- Heart-related Death
- Pulmonary Embolism
How To File Uloric Lawsuit
Filing Uloric Lawsuit isn’t much different from filing a personal injury claim. However, there are some key differences between both.
Before you file a lawsuit and claim, you must be able to prove that Uloric caused a side effect in you. To do this, you will need to get blood tests and a complete examination from your doctor. If you are found to have a condition that is mentioned in the side effects from above, then you are entitled to compensation.
Take your medicine record to an experienced lawyer and explain your situation. With the medical record, the lawyer will be able to create a lawsuit against the company. Keep in mind that you must have been using the medicine before 2018 to claim because, in 2019, the medicine comes with side effects warnings.
