Levitra Class Action Lawsuit

Overview

Levitra contains vardenafil, a drug that is nearly identical to Viagra. Both drugs treat erectile dysfunction by inhibiting the enzyme PDE5, which increases blood-flow to the penis.

Erectile Dysfunction Drugs and Melanoma

In 2014, Harvard researchers published a study linking Viagra with an 84% increased risk of melanoma. Other studies have found that PDE5-inhibitors speed up the development of melanoma and make it more invasive.

Melanoma Lawsuits

As of mid-2016, 80 melanoma lawsuits were centralized in federal court against Pfizer. Drug-makers are facing a growing number of lawsuits for failing to warn about melanoma. If patients are unaware of the risk, it could delay diagnosis and increase the risk of death.

What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm. However, we are not filing a Levitra class action. Men with melanoma have already filed lawsuits, but they are individual lawsuits rather than a class action.

About Class Actions

Class action lawsuits are typically filed by a “class representative” on behalf of a large number of people with similar injuries. They collectively seek compensation and share any payout equally.

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

Members of class actions sometimes must accept “low-ball” settlements or higher attorneys’ fees. Class actions improve efficiency but they are not designed to maximize compensation for individuals.

Instead of a class action, our lawyers are filing individual lawsuits. We specialize in helping victims of defective drugs seek compensation for their medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost income, permanent injuries, and more.
