Dangerous Drugs

Testosterone Heart Attacks & Strokes

We are currently investigating potential lawsuits on behalf of men who used testosterone therapies and suffered from heart attacks, strokes or other serious medical conditions, such as blood clots, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolisms (PE).

According to a 2014 study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association, testosterone therapy (often marketed as “low-T” treatments), have been linked to a substantial increased risk of heart attacks in older men and in younger men with pre-existing diagnosed heart disease. These testosterone treatments are available as gels, patches, pellets and injections.

Actos® Bladder Cancer

We are currently investigating potential claims on behalf of patients who have suffered bladder cancer while taking the diabetes medication, Actos®.

On June 15, 2011 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a public safety alert regarding the use of the diabetes medication, Actos®. The FDA warned that using Actos® for a period of longer than one year may lead to an increased risk of the development of bladder cancer.

Information on the risk of bladder cancer will be added to the warnings and precautions label on all pioglitazone-containing medications, including Actos®, and will also be included in the patient medication guide.
