There are only a few days left for those hurt by Avandia to join the Canadian Class Action lawsuit against the drug’s manufacturer, GlaxoSmithKline. Avandia (Rosiglitazone) is a common medication used for the treatment of diabetes which has been linked to many life-threatening health issues, such as heart attacks and heart failure. Since being released in 1999, Avandia has been taken by more than 6 million Canadians. Despite a growing amount of evidence linking Avandia with heart conditions, GlaxoSmithKline denies any health risks with their drug and continued to heavily market Avandia. Health Canada posted an advisory warning in November 2001 indicating safety concerns being associated with this class of drug. Even after this, GlaxoSmithKline continually made claims regarding the safety of Avandia. It is advised that anybody taking Avandia should consult with their physician immediately. Having said that, we do not advise stopping your medication without first consulting with a doctor.A Class Action lawsuit has gone through the courts, with a settlement having been approved where GlaxoSmithKline has to pay out up to CAD$6.75 million to those impacted by the drug. Those impacted are entitled to financial compensation ranging from CAD$3,333 and CAD$18,333.To qualify, you must meet the following criteria:1. You must have been prescribed and took Avandia for a minimum of 30 consecutive days before December 2010; and 2. Within one year of taking Avandia you must have suffered one or more of the following cardiovascular issues:a. Myocardial infarction (heart attack);b. Congestive heart failure;c. Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG surgery); and/or d. Percutaneous coronary intervention with stent placement. If the affected person is now deceased, a spouse or estate representative may file a claim on their behalf.The claims period for this lawsuit ends on July 15th. This means that in order to be deemed a part of the lawsuit and receive compensation for your suffering, you must have all your completed forms along with supporting medical records submitted to the courts by Wednesday, July 15th at the latest. If you or a loved one have been affected by Avandia and meet the above requirements, please get in touch with our office through the web form at this link to get the process started. Once again, we urge you to contact us ASAP as the window to submit a claim is quickly coming to an end.www.guardian.law/class-action-cases-avandia-condensed-form... See MoreSee Less
