Plaintiff and Her Husband Claim Benicar Caused Her Injuries

 The Iowa woman and her husband allege that the severe risks of Benicar outweigh the possible benefits. Complications alleged in similar Benicar lawsuits include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Gastrointestinal injury
  • Enteropathy
  • Dehydration or malnutrition leading to hospitalization
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Weight loss

The Iowa couple alleges that Daiichi Sankyo recklessly disregarded the potentially dangerous side effects of Benicar, and did not inform doctors or patients of the risks associated with the drug.

According to the complaint:

“The drug was not accompanied by adequate instructions and/or warnings to fully apprise the consumers, including the Plaintiff, of the full nature and extent of the risks and side effects associated with its uses…”

 “[The] Defendants were aware at the time that the drug was marketed that chronic, long-term use would result an increased risk of bodily injuries.” 

Injured Patients May Be Entitled to Compensation

 It is the duty of drug makers to provide safe drugs and to warn of possible side effects that could result in injuries to patients. If a drug maker fails to fulfill that duty, it can be held liable for injuries to patients that may occur.

If Benicar side effects injure a patient, he or she may be entitled to compensation for damages, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of income or ability to work
