AndroGel Testosterone Lawyers

Persons who suffered one or more cardiovascular events such as heart attack or stroke while taking supplemental testosterone may be eligible for compensation from an AndroGel lawsuit. This page provides information on testosterone lawsuit claims for heart attack and stroke, including who is eligible to file an AndroGel lawsuit.

Testosterone Lawsuits for Stroke and Heart Attack Are NOT Class Action Lawsuits

Are you wondering if filing an AndroGel lawsuit will actually result in meaningful compensation for your family? This is a common concern of individuals filing claims for this and other harmful drugs.

Understand that AndroGel testosterone lawsuits are NOT class action lawsuits, in which each plaintiff may expect only a small, symbolic settlement. Instead, AndroGel and other testosterone lawsuits are expected to join forces through a Multi-District Litigation (MDL), a legal process that allows similar cases to be processed together while still accounting for the individual circumstances of each case. Plaintiffs can be assured their settlement will be awarded based on the particulars of their individual circumstances and degree of suffering.

MDLs do yield meaningful compensation for plaintiffs. For example, in the past year:

AndroGel Testosterone Lawsuits to Date

The first Androgel lawsuits for heart attack and stroke were filed in the beginning of 2014, asserting that the drug maker AbbVie did not warn consumers of the known heart attack and stroke risks linked to testosterone supplements. These AndroGel lawsuits were filed on the tails of a FDA testosterone warning, which was issued as a result of two conclusive research studies published in later 2013 and early 2014. The studies provided evidence that using testosterone supplements increases men’s risk for heart attack and stroke by two- and three-fold. The testosterone lawsuits assert that “Low-T” marketing campaigns make sweeping claims about the benefits of AndroGel while failing to adequately warn consumers about the risks of heart attack and stroke. Experts warn that research proving the benefits of testosterone replacement therapy has been greatly outpaced by advertising touting its benefits.

AndroGel lawsuits are not the first legal trouble encountered by Abbott, AbbVie’s parent company, for its marketing practices. In 2012, Abbott paid a settlement for $1.6 billion to the Justice Department and 45 states for illegal marketing of its epilepsy drug Depakote. Following this large settlement, a class action lawsuit for Depakote was filed in 2013. Back in 2008, Abbott was issued an FDA warning for failing to warn consumers of the risks associated with its prescription drug Humira, and then it was not until 2010 that the company complied in warning doctors of Humira’s dangers. The company also faces an ongoing lawsuit regarding the rights for other companies to market generic testosterone gels.

Testosterone lawsuits serve the dual purpose of providing real and meaningful compensation for plaintiffs and their families, while also holding large pharmaceutical companies accountable for the damages caused by dangerous drugs.

Testosterone Lawyers Work on a Contingency Basis; No Fees Unless You Win Compensation

AndroGel Testosterone Lawsuits

If you or a family member experienced one or more incidents of heart attack or stroke while taking AndroGel, testosterone lawyers will represent your interests on a contingency basis. This simply means you will never be charged legal fees unless testosterone lawyers win compensation on your behalf. You can rest assured that you will not incur out-of-pocket legal expenses in the pursuit of justice.

When a person suffers severe medical problems as a result of a dangerous drug - or even worse, a family loses a loved one to a heart attack or stroke from testosterone - the drug company must be held accountable for the harm they have caused. No amount of money can replace a loved one or reverse the effects of a serious cardiac event, but filing a lawsuit can yield compensation to prevent financial ruin.
