When is it time to file a Benicar lawsuit? That’s a question scores of people are debating across the country and it can be a difficult choice. However, dozens of individuals have decided to each file their benicar lawsuit and many more are expected in time.
Currently, the Levin, Papantonio law firm is investigating cases where Benicar-induced, sprue-like enteropathy may have occurred in users. In response to the mounting Benicar lawsuits being filed, the law firm has launched a Benicar lawsuit help website to help people looking for information about the litigation.
“Benicar-induced, sprue-like enteropathy was once thought to be a rare side effect of taking Benicar,” commented Daniel Nigh, a Benicar lawyer with the Levin, Papantonio law firm. “However, we are finding out that sprue-like enteropathy may not be a rare occurrence after all, as several individuals who have suffered these detrimental symptoms are coming forward.”
The connection between Benicar and sprue-like enteropathy was first discovered in June 2012 by Dr. Joseph Murray and a team of researchers with the Mayo Clinic. After several years of observing Benicar users suffering from sprue-like enteropathy, Murray concluded that it was the drug itself that was inducing the gastrointestinal condition.
In 2013, Murray’s findings sparked an investigation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on the link between Benicar and sprue-like enteropathy. The probe eventually led to to an FDA Consumer Warning on Benicar being issued, and Benicar’s warning label was updated in July 2013 to mention the severe gastrointestinal risks associated with the drug.
Individuals with questions about a potential Benicar lawsuit are encouraged to visit the Benicar Lawsuit help website for more information.
