Almost 30 million people in the United States and more than 400 million people worldwide have diabetes. The majority of those affected by diabetes have type 2 diabetes. In the United States, type 2 diabetes is one of the leading causes of death. More than 76,000 people die as a result of diabetes every year. Although diabetes can be controlled with diet and exercise, many people take prescription medication to control their diabetes.

Invokana (canagliflozin) is a sodium glucose co-transporter 2—or SGLT2—inhibitor manufactured by Janssen Pharmaceuticals used to treat type 2 diabetes. Invokana is recommended in addition to diet and exercise to increase the health of diabetics. Invokana ensures that the body’s insulin levels remain normal. Although Invokana has helped many people lead full lives with controlled diabetes, there are many well-known side effects and risks.

Invokana can cause dehydration, yeast infections, ketoacidosis, kidney problems, hyperkalemia, urinary tract infections, hypoglycemia, allergic reaction, and broken bones. One of the most concerning side effects of Invokana is the increased risk of amputations. Unfortunately, the instances of amputations—of the toes, foot, below-knee, and above-knee—are more likely to occur in diabetics taking Invokana than those not taking the prescription medication.

If you suffered an amputation after you took Invokana to treat your diabetes, you might have grounds to file a lawsuit. You have rights—and you should seek legal assistance as soon as possible. You must contact Kenmore Law Firm today to speak with an Invokana amputation lawyer as soon as possible. Our experienced Los Angeles Invokana amputation attorneys will give you all the information you need to take legal action after suffering an amputation. Whether you were affected in Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange County, San Francisco, Sacramento, or Fresno, our attorneys at Kenmore Law Firm can help you take action and fight for your rights.

In the following sections, you will find general information about taking legal action after suffering an amputation due to Invokana. Although you should find the sections informative, you should not use the sections below provided as your only source of legal information. You must contact Kenmore Law Firm as soon as possible to speak with our Los Angeles lawyers who handle Invokana foot amputation lawsuits.

What is the Risk of Amputation?

People with diabetes already have a risk of amputations. The risk is due to poor circulation and issues with the nerves in the legs and the feet. Unfortunately, in addition to the preexisting risk of amputation that is present in diabetics, Invokana results in an increased risk. According to studies about Invokana and diabetes, 1 in 69 diabetics who take Invokana will have an amputation within five years.

Although Invokana can successfully control diabetes by decreasing blood sugar and blood pressure, Invokana can cause the patient’s blood to thicken. Since diabetics often have poor circulation, the thickened blood often pools in the foot creating serious problems. Ulcers or small cuts on the feet or legs could quickly become infected and life-threatening. Because of the dangers of lower-limb infections, an amputation is often the only option.

If you took Invokana to treat your diabetes and suffered an amputation, you must speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible. The knowledgeable attorneys at Kenmore Law Firm could help you file a claim if you suffered an amputation because of Invokana side effects.

Janssen Pharmaceuticals Liability

Janssen Pharmaceuticals is responsible for the manufacturing of Invokana. Is Janssen Pharmaceuticals liable for any amputations that might have occurred as a result of their medication? If the company negligently released a medication that was unsafe for consumption, they might be found liable. For more information about Janssen Pharmaceuticals’ liability in your Invokana claim, you should contact our law firm as soon as possible and speak with our attorneys.

Compensation Available for Your Claim

If you file a lawsuit after having a leg, foot, or toe amputated due to Invokana side effects, you might be eligible to receive compensation. Our law firm understands that no amount of compensation could reverse the trauma of suffering an amputation. However, our attorneys experienced in Invokana amputation lawsuits are dedicated to helping you recover the maximum amount of compensation available for your claim. What compensation might you be eligible to recover? How much is your Invokana amputation claim worth? The types and amount of compensation you might receive depend on the specific details of your claim. Although only a lawyer with experience in Invokana leg amputation cases can provide you with the specific information you need, you should be familiar with the different categories of compensation available for Invokana lawsuits:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages

If you would like more information about the specific compensation you might receive, you must contact Kenmore Law Firm—a law firm that is experienced in Invokana amputation lawsuits. Our experienced Invokana attorneys are dedicated to helping you sue and recover the compensation you deserve.

The Statute of Limitations for Invokana Claims

If you suffered an amputation after taking Invokana, you must file your claim as soon as possible. When considering filing a lawsuit, it is essential that victims act with a sense of urgency. We understand that you might need time to recover from the trauma associated with your amputation. However, if you wait too long to file your lawsuit, you might lose your right to sue and receive compensation.  To preserve your right to sue, you must file your claim within the statute of limitations. A statute of limitations is a timeline that establishes the time that claimants have to file their lawsuits. If you were affected by Invokana and had to get your toe, foot, or leg amputated, you must file your claim within two-years of your amputation. If you were affected in Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange County, San Francisco, Sacramento, Fresno, or anywhere in California, you are subject to the two-year statute of limitations. In addition to the timeframe established by the statute of limitations, some exceptions to the statue might apply to your claim. These exceptions might toll or extend your statue of limitations.
