Charleston, IL Avandia Lawsuit Attorneys

Have You Suffered Serious Side Effects?

Avandia (rosiglitazone) is a drug that was developed and marketed to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus, a condition sometimes referred to as adult-onset diabetes. Although originally prescribed to help control blood sugar levels, medical studies have linked Avandia to a substantial risk of heart-related injuries and other side effects. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued several safety warnings about the side effects associated with Avandia.

If you experienced side effects associated with Avandia, we at The Tapella & Eberspacher Law Firm can talk to you about what occurred and whether you have grounds for legal action against the drug’s manufacturer, GlaxoSmithKline, or another potentially at-fault party. With extensive experience in drug injury litigation, our attorneys can advise you of your rights and help you take the right steps toward justice and fair compensation.
