Lawsuit Is Part of A Multidistrict Litigation

Testosterone replacement therapy drugs are used by men with low testosterone, with symptoms including low libido, weight gain, depression, and fatigue, among others. According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff was first prescribed AndroGel and Axiron in June of 2011. The plaintiff stopped using the drugs in 2013 after he suffered a pulmonary embolism, which occurs when a blood clot forms or travels to the arteries inside of the lungs.

The lawsuit was filed within the established multidistrict litigation pending against several makers of TRT drugs, including AbbVie, Eli Lilly, Pfizer, and several others. The plaintiff’s claim against the drug makers include:

  • Failure to properly warn consumers of the known risks of TRT
  • Negligent misrepresentation of material facts about TRT
  • Violation of consumer protection legislation

The lawsuit also accuses TRT drug makers of fraud, defective design and breach of warranties.

Injured Patients May Be Entitled to Compensation

If a drug maker fails to fulfill its duty to provide safe drugs and to warn of potentially harmful side effects that may be associated with its medication, it could be held liable for any injuries that may result. Patients who have been injured by testosterone replacement therapy drugs may be entitled to compensation for damages, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain, suffering, and mental anguish
  • Loss of income or ability to work

If a patient dies from complications after a testosterone drug, his or her family members may be able to pursue claims for their loved one’s wrongful death. Compensation may include:

  • Pain, suffering, and mental anguish from the loss of a loved one
  • Loss of a loved one’s financial support
  • Funeral expenses
