Lipitor Lawsuit News: Pfizer, Inc. Named in Whistleblower Lawsuit Alleging Improper Marketing of Lipitor, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:1/14/2014

y-filed Lipitor diabetes claims in a single jurisdiction for pretrial proceedings. All of these lawsuits accuse Pfizer of failing to provide adequate warnings regarding the risks associated with the statin medication. (In re Lipitor (Atorvastatin) Litigation, MDL No. 2502 (JPML))

In February 2012, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) ordered Pfizer to add new warnings to the Lipitor label regarding its possible association with an increased risk of new-onset Type 2 diabetes. The FDA acted after research published in JAMA: Internal Medicine reported that post-menopausal women treated with statins were at increased risk of developing diabetes.*

In May 2013, the British Medical Journal published a study which found Lipitor patients faced a 22 percent increased risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.**

Individuals who allegedly developed diabetes due to their use of Lipitor may be entitled to compensation from Pfizer. To find out more about filing a Lipitor lawsuit, please visit Bernstein Liebhard LLP’s website. To arrange for a free legal review, please call 800-511-5092.
