Legal Funding Solutions for Invokana Plaintiffs

Jacky Gale | December 13th, 2016


At least 55 product liability lawsuits have been filed against the makers of the drug Invokana. They claim that this drug, an SGLT2 inhibitor intended to manage diabetes, increase the risk of life-threatening health complications such as kidney failure, diabetic ketoacidosis, and heart attack. Recently, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) ordered the centralization of Invokana lawsuits proceeding in federal courts. The order to create a multidistrict litigation (MDL) does not apply to lawsuits filed regarding other SGLT2 inhibitors such as Farxiga and Jardiance. The Invokana plaintiffs’ cases will now be presided over by U.S. District Court Judge Brian Martinotti in the District of New Jersey.

What legal funding can do for you

If you have a pending Invokana lawsuit or a lawsuit that pertains to another dangerous drug, then you have already experienced the extent to which dangerous drugs can wreak havoc on your finances. It can become difficult to pay your rent or mortgage and put food on the table when you’re juggling exorbitant medical expenses. Perhaps you’ve had to take an extended leave of absence from work to deal with your injuries or perhaps you’re out of work altogether with few future prospects because of your illness. Not to mention the severe mental stress that comes from being harassed by creditors and debt collectors. As a patient who has been wronged, you deserve relief.

Legal funding is a way to attain that relief. You may have heard the term “legal loans” before, but this is a misnomer. Legal loans aren’t actually loans at all, but cash advances made with an eye toward future settlements or jury awards. Because these payments are not traditional bank or credit union loans, they represent zero risk to the plaintiffs. In the event that you lose your lawsuit, you do not need to repay the cash advance. The lender carries all of the risk for you.

If you decide to apply, you could have cash in your pocket by tomorrow. Legal funding can be used for any of your expenses – from housing and utility costs to groceries and even holiday gifts for your loved ones. You can also use the money for your legal fees and various litigation-related expenses such as expert witness fees. This can give your lawsuit the boost it needs to improve the chances of a favorable outcome. Plus, you won’t feel pressured to settle prematurely simply because you need the money.
