ZKB Law to Pursue Individual Lipitor Lawsuits after Judge Denies MDL Status Business Wire TOLEDO, Ohio -- August 19, 2013 After a judge denied a potential MDL status for Lipitor lawsuits, the class action attorneys of Zoll, Kranz & Borgess LLC will continue to pursue justice on a case-by-case basis. Lipitor, marketed by Pfizer, is a drug intended to treat high cholesterol and triglycerides. Reports suggest that the drug causes some women to develop Type 2 diabetes, a chronic condition that could turn deadly without proper treatment. Through multidistrict litigation (MDL), multiple victims harmed by the same entity can have their lawsuits consolidated to expedite discovery or the gathering of evidence. However, just because MDL status was denied at this time does not mean the lawsuits cannot move forward. Pamela A. Borgess, a partner at Zoll, Kranz & Borgess LLC, will be pursuing legal action on an individual plaintiff basis. “Patients deserve accurate and complete information on the safety of their medication. The bottom line is, when a drug company hides or minimizes the dangers of a drug or overstates its benefits to increase corporate profits at the expense of the patient, the drug company should be held responsible,” Borgess said. “That’s why we will keep moving forward with Lipitor cases. We strongly believe that these women now suffering with diabetes deserve their day in court.” Women who developed type 2 diabetes while taking Lipitor are encouraged to contact the attorneys of Zoll, Kranz and Borgess (ZKB) to schedule a free consultation. Since 1988, ZKB attorneys have been strong allies for individuals harmed by dangerous pharmaceutical products. They were the first American firm to file suit against the makers of Heparin, a drug that was contaminated and connected to the deaths of hundreds of innocent people. They were heavily involved in litigation against the makers of Vioxx, they filed suits against DePuy for faulty hip replacements and they recovered millions for women injured by birth control medications like Ocella, Yaz and Yasmin. With a licensed medical doctor on staff, ZKB is strongly positioned to take on companies that have not acted responsibly and have harmed their clients.
