UPDATE: Canadian Lawyers file AndroGel Class Action Lawsuit
July 25, 2014 — Attorneys in Canada have filed an AndroGel class action against AbbVie, seeking recovery on behalf of Canadians who purchased testosterone products. Click here to read more.
AndroGel Safety Concerns
In a Safety Communication published in January 2014, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned about two studies linking testosterone replacement therapy to heart attacks, strokes, and death. One study found that these events were 30% more likely in the first 90 days of treatment, and another study found a doubled risk of heart attack for men over 65 on testosterone.
What is the problem?
The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but we are not filing an AndroGel class action lawsuit at this time. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits. Our lawyers provide legal representation on a personal level to help each of our clients maximize their financial recovery, including economic and non-economic damages.
We are evaluating AndroGel lawsuits involving:
- Blood clots
- Heart attack
- Pulmonary embolism
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Abnormal heart rhythm
- Organ damage
- And other serious side effects
About Class Actions
Class actions come to mind when most people think about nationwide litigation. In most class actions, a small group of plaintiffs (called the “class representatives”) file a lawsuit on behalf of a much larger group of plaintiffs who are never named. Class actions are particularly useful when each person has a relatively minor injury (such as buying a TV based on false advertisements about screen resolution) and the cost of filing an individual lawsuit is higher than the potential award.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to an AndroGel Class Action
Class actions make sense in some circumstances, but for severely injured people, they can be detrimental. Members can be forced into a “low-ball settlement” with high attorneys’ fees. AndroGel has been linked to extremely serious side effects — heart attack, blood clots, stroke, and even death.
Our trial lawyers believe every victim deserves the chance to take his case to court. Instead of an AndroGel class action, we advocate for our clients by evaluating cases for free and filing individual lawsuits.
