Belviq® was first approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2012 and sold to consumers in 2013 as a way to help users manage their weight. Clinical trials have now shown a link between Belviq, also known as lorcaserin, and certain types of cancer.

We believe that anyone harmed by this medication has the right to compensation for the damages they’re experiencing. If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer after taking lorcaserin, contact our team today to schedule a free consultation.

The Link Between Belviq and Cancer

The FDA recalled Belviq in February 2020 after discovering an association between the medication and cancer. The three types of cancer most closely linked to Belviq are pancreatic, lung, and colorectal cancers.

The manufacturer of Belviq, Eisai Co., has yet to agree with the FDA’s assessment that the risks of Belviq outweigh the potential benefits for weight management. But Eisai Co. has complied with the FDA’s request to recall the drug.

The seven-year gap between the sell and recall of Belviq means that far too many consumers were put at risk by Eisai’s dangerous product. For those who have been diagnosed with cancer after taking Belviq, legal options are available.

Cancer Patients Who Took Belviq Should Explore Their Legal Options

Anyone who took Belviq and is now living with lung, pancreatic, or colorectal cancer has the right to consider legal action against Eisai Co. By filing a drug injury claim, these cancer patients can recover compensation that helps them with all past and future damages caused by Belviq.

Drug manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure the safety of their products. When they fall short of that obligation, they should be held accountable for the costs facing consumers who trusted the safety of their products.

    Due to a personal injury accident, not my fault, I needed to find a lawyer to help me with my case. I chose Ponce Law due to TV advertising and proximity to my home. Throughout the process they were helpful explaining steps being taken. They were helpful in reducing some of the subrogation expenses which ultimately put more of the settlement in my pocket. Thank you to David Wyatt & Taylor Desmet for their assistance throughout this process.

    I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!

    After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.

    I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
