Testim Class Action Lawsuit Information
The first Testim lawsuits have been filed in Pennsylvania and California on behalf of men who had heart attacks. Dozens of additional lawsuits have been filed against other manufacturers of testosterone replacement products.
These cases are not part of a Testim class action lawsuit — instead, they are individual claims filed by men who hired individual legal representation. In the future, it is possible that the cases will be centralized in a Multi-District Litigation (MDL) or mass tort.
The MDL process is ideal for complex product liability litigation. Lawsuits are centralized in one federal court, under one judge. Like a class action, an MDL streamlines the pre-trial discovery process. Unlike a class action, each individual case can have its own outcome.
What is the problem?
The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but our lawyers are not pursuing justice for our clients through a Testim class action lawsuit. Instead, we file individual lawsuits.
Our lawyers are evaluating legal claims involving:
- Blood clots
- Heart attack
- Pulmonary embolism
- Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
- Venous Thromboembolism (VTE)
- Organ damage
- Wrongful death
About Class Actions
Class actions are ideal when a large number of people need to file essentially the same lawsuit. For example, when a major fast food company systematically denies their workers fair wages or overtime pay. It wouldn’t make financial sense for each person to file a lawsuit alone — but by joining together, plaintiffs can collectively argue for compensation on behalf of the entire group.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action
Class actions are appropriate in certain circumstances, but they can have major disadvantages for plaintiffs who were seriously injured. Members may have to accept high attorneys’ fees and a “low-ball” settlement. In addition, typically only the “class representative” in a class action ever sees his or her case taken to trial.
The Schmidt Firm, PLLC provides free case evaluations for victims of Testim who wish to seek justice and financial compensation. Our lawyers understand that many of our clients are suffering devastating losses to their physical, emotional, and financial health. In most cases, we also provide legal representation on contingency-fee.
