Byetta (generic: exenatide) is a prescription medicine that is directly indicated for the treatment of patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus. While it may mitigate symptoms associated with this condition, treatment may coincide with severe Byetta side effects. Patients receiving this twice daily injection may be at an increased risk of developing, what many are referring to as, Byetta cancer. Accordingly, pancreatic cancer and thyroid cancer have each been linked to the use of this drug. Due to the rate and severity in which these complications can occur, those that have been hurt may want to join a Byetta class action lawsuit.

Byetta Class Action Summary
Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the Products Liability Litigation Group at our law firm has decided against the filing of a class action suit and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of injured individuals and/or their family members that have been diagnosed with a form of Byetta cancer. Accordingly, pancreatic cancer and thyroid cancer have each been associated with Byetta treatment and may be a large part of future litigation.
About Class Action Lawsuits
A class action is a type of lawsuit filed with the court on behalf of large group of people or “class” of individuals that have been injured or wronged. The class is represented by the law firm and corresponding Byetta lawyers. Cases are generally decided upon a single member of the class who is sometimes referred to as the “class representative or class rep.”
Those seeking to join a class action are presumably seeking compensation for injuries sustained after experiencing severe Byetta side effects. The class action may allege that exenatide is responsible for the onset of Byetta pancreatic cancer and Byetta thyroid cancer.
Why Our Law Firm Is Filing Individual Lawsuits As Opposed To a Byetta Class Action
In some instances, a class action may offer some advantages, as they aggregate a large number of individualized claims into one representational lawsuit. The aggregation can increase the efficiency of the legal process, lower the costs of litigation and in some cases offer the solution to a common problem wherein small recoveries do not provide the incentive for any individual or law firm to file an individual lawsuit.
However, a class action suit can also be a detriment to many class members, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees. At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each clients recovery by filing individual Byetta lawsuits on their behalf.
