Fort Lauderdale Testosterone Therapy Injury Lawyer 

Testosterone is a hormone that makes a man’s body muscular and his sex drive flourish, but as men grow older their testosterone level decreases and many men turn to testosterone therapy.

Many experienced dangerous drug attorneys know of the dangerous side effects that accompany testosterone therapy. If you have experienced any of these side effects, a Fort Lauderdale testosterone therapy lawyer can examine the facts of your claim and can help you determine whether you have a case. If you do, your legal advocate can work tirelessly to build a solid case for you.

Testosterone Basics

The body’s level of testosterone begins to decrease by about 1 percent per year after reaching 30 to 40 years of age. The decline could be a condition that prevents the body from making normal amounts of testosterone, called hypogonadism.

Reduced testosterone causes changes in sexual desire, muscle strength, bone density, insomnia or other troubles sleeping. There is also decreased motivation and self-confidence, sadness or depression, and difficulty remembering things or concentrating, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Testosterone Therapy Side Effects

With all of those disheartening changes many aging men view testosterone therapy as a sort of fountain of youth and are drawn to it. The issue is that testosterone is produced only in the body so the therapy uses a synthetic drug.

Studies show that men who used testosterone supplements increased their risk of heart attack or stroke by 30 percent in three years, even if they do not have a history of heart disease. Those with that history saw the risk almost tripled, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Other side effects include:

  • Oily skin
  • Acne
  • Higher red blood cell count
  • Male pattern baldness
  • Testicular shrinking
  • Breast enlargement
  • Urinary symptoms

The U.S Food and Drug Administration in 2014 said it was investigating the risks of the testosterone products it has approved. In Florida, a physician must approve testosterone therapy for patients.

Legal Action for Testosterone Therapy Side Effects

Many men who have experienced these dangerous side effects have sued the synthetic testosterone manufacturers for failing to adequately warn consumers about the drug and they falsely advertised the drug in calling the synthetic natural.

The lawsuits are based on product liability law. The strict liability doctrine allows people to sue product makers without having to prove they were negligent in making the product. Eliminating negligence is intended to encourage the production of safe products.

A Fort Lauderdale testosterone therapy lawyer must prove that harm did occur from using the drug and that the user did not abuse the drug. Florida also allows those injured to hold the drug’s suppliers, sellers, and distributors liable.

Potential Damages

Lawsuits against testosterone makers claim the expenses of medical care and physical therapy related to using the drug, lost income, along with non-economic damages such as pain and suffering and emotional trauma.
