Put your trust in a nationally recognized dangerous drug lawyer who puts your interests first

You might think you don't need a lawyer to handle your Actos injury. You might think you can deal directly with the Takeda Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc., the multinational drug manufacturer that makes Actos.

Don't be so sure. Even if Takeda Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc., or attorneys working for them seem cooperative, it's important to understand that most large drug companies do everything they can to avoid paying injury victims.

Don't put your future at risk. Take back control. If you or a loved one was harmed by Actos or another dangerous drug, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact Jeffrey DeCarlo today. Call (305) 572-0065 and schedule a free case evaluation.
