Testosterone Class Action Lawsuit

Testosterone Class Action Lawsuit

For men without hypogonadism, the risks of testosterone therapy side effects may outweigh the benefits. In January 2014, the FDA began investigating studies linking testosterone to a 30% increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and death in the first 90 days of treatment. Other studies indicate that testosterone may significantly increase a man’s risk of blood clots and heart attack — especially for men over 65 and those with heart disease.

UPDATE: Canadian Lawyers file Testosterone Class Action Lawsuits

July 25, 2014 — Attorneys in Canada have filed two class action lawsuits against the manufacturers of AndroGel (testosterone gel) and Delatestryl (testosterone injection). These class actions are seeking recovery on behalf of Canadians who purchased testosterone products. Click here to read more.

Overview

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) has been prescribed to millions of middle-aged men who have symptoms of “low testosterone” — low energy, muscle weakness, depressed mood, sexual dysfunction, and more.

Testosterone replacement products include:

  • Androgel (AbbVie Inc.) – Topical gel applied to skin
  • Androderm (Actavis) – Patch
  • Axiron (Lilly USA, LLC) – Underarm liquid/cream
  • Bio-T-Gel (Teva Pharmaceuticals) – Topical gel applied to skin
  • Delatestryl (Endo Pharmaceuticals) – Injection
  • Depo-Testosterone (Unigen Life Sciences) – Injection
  • Fortesta (Endo Pharmaceuticlas) – Topical gel applied to skin
  • Striant (Auxilium Pharmaceuticals) – Buccal tablet absorbed through gums
  • Testim (Auxilum Pharmaceuticals) – Topical gel applied to skin
  • Testopel (Auxilium Pharmaceuticals) – Subcutaneous pellet

What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but we are not filing a testosterone class action lawsuit. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits against manufacturers of testosterone patches, gels, injections, and other products on behalf of men with severe side effects:

About Class Actions

Class action lawsuits make sense when a large group of people have been injured by the same defendant. Individuals consolidate their legal claims into one representative action, select a “class representative,” and hire a law firm to fight for compensation on behalf of the entire group.

Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Testosterone Class Action Lawsuit

Class actions can be beneficial in certain circumstances, but a testosterone class action lawsuit could also have serious disadvantages — especially for men with severe injuries. Members of a class action may be forced into a “low-ball settlement” with high attorneys’ fees.

Instead of a class action, our trial lawyers advocate for each of our clients by filing individual lawsuits. We believe every man who had a blood clot, heart attack, stroke, or other side effect of testosterone deserves the opportunity to take his case before a judge and jury.
