Low Testosterone Treatment Lawsuit – Let Us Provide You With A Free Case Evaluation

The FDA is investigating the risk of stroke, heart attack—and even death—in men using FDA-approved prescription gels, creams, injections and patches for low testosterone therapy. Recent studies show that low testosterone treatment increases the risk of heart attack for older men and in younger men with a history of heart disease. The manufacturers of these products in recent years have pushed a direct-to-consumer marketing campaign, urging men with decreased libido to be treated for “Low T” or low testosterone.

If you or a loved one has suffered a heart attack or stroke while using low testosterone drugs or gels, we would like to speak with you. Our firm is reviewing potential product liability lawsuits for users of testosterone enhancing drugs and you may be eligible for compensation from the manufacturers of common low T treatments. For more information please call 337-291-HURT or complete the online contact form.
