Lorcaserin, marketed as Belviq, is a popular weight-loss drug that was recalled in 2020 after research indicated that use of the drug correlated to higher rates of cancer. If you took this drug and are worried it may have caused cancer for you, it is natural that you would want to learn more about Belviq lawsuits. Here is everything you need to know about the lawsuits being filed by those who have been impacted by Belviq.
Why Are There Belviq Lawsuits?
After an FDA safety trial concluded that Belviq could increase the risk of different types of cancer in those who used it, the FDA ordered a full recall of the drug in February 2020. Some of the cancer types linked to this drug include lung cancer, colorectal cancer, and pancreatic cancer.
A number of lawsuits have been brought against the drugs manufacturer by people who took the drug and now fear that their cancer may be the result. They are filing lawsuits in an effort to get proper compensation.
A successful lawsuit can yield money to cover various past and future damages. Some of these damages include medical bills, funeral expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
How Do I File a Belviq Lawsuit?
If you believe that you have been impacted by Belviq, contact a personal injury (PI) attorney. They can help you through the lawsuit process to hopefully help you get the compensation you deserve. You should also report any side effects that you have experienced from this drug to the FDA.
Those who are eligible for a Belviq lawsuit must be at least 18. They must have taken Belviq or its generic form before being diagnosed with cancer.
If a loved one has been impacted by this drug, you can also talk to a lawyer or even file a claim on their behalf.
