Invokana Diabetic Ketoacidosis Lawsuits Filed

Individuals who have been harmed by Invokana are currently filing Invokana Diabetic Ketoacidosis lawsuits against the manufacturer, Janssen, a division of Johnson & Johnson.

Invokana lawsuits claim the manufacturer of the drug, Janssen/Johnson & Johnson knew about the risk of diabetic ketoacidosis but did not warn the public or health practitioners leaving them to make uninformed medical decisions that put them at risk of harm, including diabetic ketoacidosis.

Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA)

According to the American Diabetes Association, Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a serious condition that can lead to diabetic coma (passing out for a long time) or even death.

When your cells don’t get the glucose they need for energy, your body begins to burn fat for energy, which produces ketones.

Ketones are chemicals that the body creates when it breaks down fat to use for energy.

The body does this when it doesn’t have enough insulin to use glucose, the body’s normal source of energy.

When ketones build up in the blood, they make it more acidic.

Invokana Diabetic Ketoacidosis Lawsuits

Since the FDA took action in 2015 with a Drug Safety Communication and followed up with a label change to Invokana, more individuals have come forward with reports of injuries, including Diabetic Ketoacidosis.

Invokana lawyers are currently filing lawsuits on behalf of these individuals in an effort to expose the risks of Invokana and to hold Johnson & Johnson accountable for the life-altering damages Invokana caused.

These lawsuits are in their early stages and as of now, there have been no coordinated proceedings or Invokana settlements.

It is quite likely that if the number of cases filed continues to increase, there will be a need for consolidation into a multidistrict litigation (MDL) and Invokana settlements will be discussed.

An MDL groups cases together so the attorneys and judge can address common procedural issues initially, saving time for the injured parties and the court.

There are no Invokana class actions, even if an MDL is established, each plaintiff’s lawsuits remain separate since each injury is different.
