Who is Eligible to File a Belviq Lawsuit?
People who were diagnosed with lung cancer, pancreatic cancer or colorectal cancer after taking Belviq for at least 6 months (does not have to be 6 months in a row) may be eligible to file a legal claim against Eisai Inc.
Patients should have taken Belviq within 7 years of receiving an official diagnosis of cancer. Additionally, the cancers must have originated in the lung, pancreas, or colon; the disease cannot have spread there from other organs.
Those who lost a loved one to cancer after they took Belviq should consult a lawyer within 18 months of the death.
People interested in filing a lawsuit should have details of their personal cancer history ready when they contact an attorney about their potential case.
What Can I Recover From a Belviq Lawsuit?
Each case is unique, but people who successfully file lawsuits can recover financial compensation for some or all of the following damages:
- Past and future medical bills (including medication, hospital stays, and in-home care)
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Funeral expenses (in the event of a loved one’s death)
Broadly speaking, a plaintiff could be entitled to compensation for any past and future costs associated with their cancer diagnosis.
How Do I Know if I Have a Lawsuit?
If you have pancreatic cancer, colorectal cancer, lung cancer, or another form of cancer and you took Belviq, Belviq XR, or any other form of lorcaserin, you deserve to know if you qualify to participate in a lawsuit seeking compensation for your injuries. Your life has been changed forever. If you survive cancer, you may still deal with cancer treatments, suffer a loss of income, and experience physical and emotional pain.
Not everyone who took Belviq and developed cancer will have a case, but many people will be able to pursue a legal recovery. An experienced mass tort attorney will review the factors of your situation, including:
- How long you took Belviq
- What type of cancer you have
- When you were diagnosed with cancer
- Your age and health history
After careful consideration, your lawyer will explain whether or not you have a Belviq lawsuit and your legal options for making a fair recovery.
