NEW ORLEANS, June 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, the Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, disclosed today a new-implemented program involving lawsuit cash advances for clients facing complications due to risky Actos prescription drugs. In April 2014, Terrence and Susan Allen were awarded $9 billion from the Louisiana jury in the first official Actos litigation. Manufacturer of the risky drug, Takeda Pharmaceutical Co. and its Indianapolis distributer Eli Lilly & Co., were ordered to pay $6 billion and $3 billion respectively for hiding the cancer risks due to their Type 2 diabetes Pioglitazone drug. This was the first breakthrough settlement for the Actos multidistrict litigation, while an estimated 4k lawsuits have been filed against Actos that still remain to be heard.

Patty Kirby, Head of Client Relations, commented on the company's new focus on drugs involving cancer risks, "Obviously any drug that has cancer as a side effect is of the highest concern to consumers. We have been a leader in funding so many mass tort cases, however we are increasing our financial commitment to funding Actos cases after the jury made such a strong statement against Actos' manufacturers for causing bladder cancer and covering it up."
