If you or a member of your family have suffered from side effects of Victoza such as acute pancreatitis or pancreatic cancer, you may have grounds to file a Victoza lawsuit against the Danish drugmaker Novo Nordisk. Victoza cancer lawsuits allow persons and families harmed by Victoza pancreas problems to seek compensation for the medical expenses, pain and suffering that have resulted from this dangerous drug.
Critics say Novo Nordisk knew of, or should have known of, the risk for pancreatic cancer and acute pancreatitis from Victoza, yet failed to sufficiently warn doctors or consumers. In fact, the term â€œpancreatic cancerâ€ does not appear on the drug's warning label. Studies show that patients taking Victoza for Type 2 diabetes are 3.7 times more likely to develop acute pancreatitis than those taking a different drug to moderate blood sugar levels, and a peer-reviewed medical study identified pancreatic cancer cell growth has been identified in Victoza users.
Victoza occupies the majority market share for incretin mimetics, a particular type of Type 2 diabetes drug that is used prominently across the globe. Despite concerns about the safety of Victoza from the start - the drug received FDA approval against the recommendations of three FDA safety experts - the drug has become Novo Nordisk's best selling product. Victoza yielded sales of approximately $2 billion in 2014. Novo Nordisk paid more than $58 million in September of 2017 to resolve a U.S. Department of Justice suit for illegal marketing methods and the payment of physician kickbacks.
If you or a member of your family developed pancreatic cancer or acute pancreatitis from taking Victoza, you may qualify to file a Victoza lawsuit to recover compensation for damages you have suffered as a result of this dangerous drug.

Many persons who have been harmed by Victoza pancreas problems wonder if filing a Victoza lawsuit will result in meaningful compensation for their family. Victoza pancreatic cancer lawsuits will not be class action lawsuits in which those who file a claim can expect only a small, symbolic settlement. On the contrary, lawyers handling Victoza lawsuits believe persons and family members of persons who have developed pancreatic cancer or acute pancreatitis as a result of using Victoza may be entitled to significant compensation. While Victoza pancreatic cancer lawsuits are being consolidated as Multi-District Litigation (MDL), each claim will be handled on its own merit and compensation will be determined based on the degree of suffering of each plaintiff.
