People whom have been injured by the use of Testosterone used with Low T Therapy do have legal options

If you are a user of certain Testosterone products, and after having followed the instructions of your physician you have found yourself with a diagnosis of any of the listed side effects, you do have options. The obvious first step that you should take is seeing a medical specialist and getting your condition taken care of.

You may not be able to continue working or taking care of your family, and may need to hire somebody to assist you. When a drug manufacturer puts patients’ and well-being at risk, the American legal system has remedies available. These include:

  • Mass Torts and Multi District Litigation: A mass tort is when a group of plaintiffs file their legal proceedings in a state court, while a multi district litigation (MDL) is held in a federal court.
  • Class Action Lawsuit: In a class-action lawsuit, plaintiffs with similar injuries all combine into one single lawsuit.
  • Individual lawsuits: In an individual lawsuit, the injured party sues the drug manufacturer directly both for the expenses that they have incurred as a result of their actions and for punitive damages.

Our firm works on a contingency basis which means you will not be asked to pay any money out of pocket.

Utilize our vast experience to get compensated for your damages.

This process will be very easy. Please feel free to answer all questions honestly as your information is confidential.
