Axiron Lawsuit Information
Men who have suffered heart attacks, strokes, blood clots or other potential side effects of testosterone replacement therapy may be entitled to financial compensation for their injuries, medical expenses, and pain and suffering, which they can pursue by filing an Axiron lawsuit against Eli Lilly & Company. Axiron lawsuits and other TRT lawsuits brought in courts across the country allege that drug makers knew about the potential for their testosterone treatments to cause heart attacks and other side effects in users, yet concealed this risk from the public in order to protect their bottom line.
One of the latest Axiron injury lawsuits was filed by a 69-year-old Texas man who suffered an aortic aneurysm, an enlargement of the artery that carries blood from the heart to the rest of the body, approximately one year after beginning testosterone therapy with Axiron testosterone gel. The plaintiff was prescribed Axiron for symptoms of low testosterone in 2011, and at that time he was healthy and had no history of stroke or blood clots. In January 2013, the plaintiff suffered an aortic aneurysm, which has left him at a higher risk for cardiovascular disease, strokes and death.
