Testosterone replacement therapy is used by millions of men, but many experts are concerned that products like Fortesta could increase a man’s risk of life-threatening side effects. If you took Fortesta and had a heart attack, stroke, blood clot, or other serious injury, you are not alone.

Can I Join a Fortesta Class Action Lawsuit?
For men who were seriously injured by Fortesta or other testosterone replacement products, a class action may not be the best way to go. Drug-makers are facing dozens of personal injury lawsuits, but these are not part of a class action — they are individual lawsuits filed by men who hired a lawyer.
As the litigation grows, it is possible that federal judges will centralize proceedings into a Multi-District Litigation (MDL). An MDL streamlines the litigation process by sharing pre-trial discovery proceedings and coordinating “bellwether” trials. Unlike a class action, however, each plaintiff files an individual lawsuit, and each case can have its own outcome.
What’s the problem?
The Product Liability & Defective Drug Litigation Team at The Schmidt Firm, PLLC are nationally recognized as class action attorneys. However, we are not filing a Fortesta class action lawsuit. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits and pursuing justice for each of our clients.
We are evaluating Fortesta lawsuits involving side effects, such as:
- Blood clots
- Heart attack
- Pulmonary embolism
- Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
- Venous Thromboembolism (VTE)
- Wrongful death of a loved one
- And more
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action
Class action lawsuits have advantages in certain circumstances — for example, when homeowners find out their home was constructed with toxic drywall. However, class actions can also have disadvantages, especially for individuals who were seriously injured by a defective drug. They might be forced into high attorneys’ fees and a “low-ball” settlement.
Instead of a class action, our trial lawyers are committed to helping victims of testosterone replacement therapy through individual lawsuits. We understand that many of our clients are suffering devastating injuries to their physical, financial, and emotional health. This is why we offer free case evaluations and work on contingency-fee in most cases.
