Deadline Close for Paxil Class Action Lawsuit Settlement
By Matt O'Donnell
The deadline to file a claim for the Paxil class action lawsuit settlement is less than two weeks away. If you paid for Paxil while living in California at any time between 1999 and 2003, you may be able to receive a refund of up to $80 without proof of purchase, or a full refund of the out-of-pocket expenses you paid with proof if you file a claim form postmarked by October 10, 2012. Here’s how to file a claim for the Paxil class action settlement.
Paxil Class Action Lawsuit Settlement
The Paxil settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit, Grair v. GlaxoSmithKline, alleging GlaxoSmithKline (“GSK”) falsely advertised and promoted Paxil as being non-habit forming or non-addictive, and that GSK’s advertisements and promotional materials failed to disclose the risk of symptoms users may experience if they stopped using Paxil.
Class Members of the Paxil class action lawsuit settlement include all California residents who were 18 years old or older and who paid for any portion of the price of Paxil while living in California from January 14, 1999 through January 1, 2003.
If you have proof of purchase, you can file a claim to receive a full refund of the out-of-pocket expenses you paid for Paxil, which include insurance copayments and deductibles. (For example, if you paid a $20 copay for a Paxil prescription, you would receive $20 back.) You can still file a claim without proof of purchase to receive up to $80 in out-of-pocket expenses back.
The only way to receive any money from the Paxil settlement is to submit a claim form postmarked by October 10, 2012.
