The Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation just issued its order consolidating all federal Low-T injury lawsuits in the Northern District of Illinois. While at least one prescription testosterone manufacturer objected to an industry wide consolidation, the Panel noted that this will result in the most efficient management and resolution of this litigation. The panel’s order can be found at the following link: http://www.jpml.uscourts.gov/sites/jpml/files/MDL-2545-Initial_Transfer-05-14.pdf
The Levensten Law Firm was at the forefront of investigating claims that prescription testosterone increased the risk of heart attack and stroke in some men. Our efforts have helped bring about public awareness of these risks, notwithstanding the fact that the labels of these drugs remain silent about the risks. If you or a loved one suffered a heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism or died while taking a prescription testosterone product, such as AndroGel, Axiron, Testim or Fortesta, please feel free to contact the Levensten Law Firm to learn how to protect your rights to compensation.
