Delatestryl is a testosterone injection that is well-known to thicken the blood, which can increase the risk of a blood clot. Recent studies indicate that testosterone replacement therapy may also increase your risk of heart attack, stroke, and death by 30% — especially for older men who are just starting treatment.

UPDATE: Canadian Lawyers file Delatestryl Class Action Lawsuit
July 25, 2014 — Attorneys in Canada have filed a Delatestryl class action against AbbVie, seeking recovery on behalf of Canadians who purchased testosterone products. Click here to read more.
Is there a Delatestryl Class Action Lawsuit?
There is no Delatestryl class action lawsuit for men who were severely injured. However, dozens of lawsuits have been filed by men who were injured by testosterone replacement therapy. These lawsuits are not part of a class action — they are individual legal claims filed by men who have hired their own attorney.
In the future, it is possible that these cases will be coordinated at the federal level in a Multi-District Litigation (MDL). Like a class action, the MDL process streamlines pre-trial discovery proceedings. However, unlike a class action, cases in an MDL stay independent and each case has its own outcome.
What is the problem?
Delatestryl and other testosterone replacement products may increase your risk of blood clots, heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, and death. The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally-recognized as a class action law firm, but we are not filing a Delatestryl class action. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits on behalf of men who were injured by severe, life-threatening side effects.
About Class Actions
Class action lawsuits are a good way for a lot of people to sue the same defendant when everyone has essentially the same legal claim — especially when it would be financially impractical for each person to file an individual lawsuit. In a class action, lawyers choose one plaintiff to be the “class representative” and use that person’s case to argue for compensation on behalf of the entire group.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action
Delatestryl is associated with some of the most severe side effects a medication can cause — cardiovascular events. Our lawyers believe every man who was injured deserves his own trial attorney who will fight for justice and compensation. We are concerned that members of a class action could face high attorney’s fees and a “low-ball” settlement.
At The Schmidt Firm, PLLC, we understand that many of our clients are suffering devastating injuries to their physical, financial, and emotional health. This is why we always review potential cases for free. In addition, we often provide legal representation on contingency-fee. Contact us today to discuss your legal options.
