Have You Been Injured By Low Testosterone Therapy?
Testosterone therapy is on path to become a $5 billion dollar industry by 2017. It’s only application is hypogonadism, which is a condition that causes a testosterone deficiency. Despite the many illicit uses of testosterone, hypogonadism is the only FDA approved application of the drugs. However, as many as 25% of all patients who are currently prescribed to testosterone therapy drugs have not had the preliminary blood work conducted to determine whether or not they were in fact ideal candidates. If you’ve been unlucky enough to experience a heart attack, stroke or other serious injury while undergoing low testosterone therapy, you may be entitled to compensation. Speak with our experienced lawyers about the potential for filing a lawsuit and getting the compensation you deserve. Our toll free number is (888) 471-8787.

Do I Qualify For A Testosterone Lawsuit? Can I Take Legal Action?
Five testosterone lawsuits were filed in early February, 2014, which claim the manufacturers have concealed facts about the side effects related to the drugs. If you’ve endured injuries related to AndroGel or any of the other testosterone therapy drugs, you may be entitled to compensation. Compensation is typically sought after for pain and suffering, any and all medical expenses and any loss of income experienced as a result of the injury. Filing a low testosterone lawsuit isn’t just for your own benefit, it’s also for the benefit of other potential future victims of the drugs, holding drug manufacturers accountable for not fully researching and/or disclosing the potential risks and dangers of their testosterone products.
