Wrongful Death Lawsuits for Low T Drug Injuries
The death of a loved one can have a devastating impact on the surviving children, spouse, parents and other family members. If the loss may have been prevented, financial compensation may be available through a wrongful death lawsuit.
Increasing evidence suggests that side effects of testosterone replacement therapy may have caused many users of Androgel and other popular “Low T” drugs to suffer a fatal heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis or other sudden health problems in recent years.
The product liability lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are reviewing potential testosterone wrongful death lawsuits as a result of the drug makers’ failure to adequately warn about the risks associated with the use of:
- Other Testosterone Gels, Creams or Injections

Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) has increased in popularity in recent years, as drug makers have turned to direct-to-consumer advertising, which encouraged many men to use a “low T” treatment when they had no real medical need.
While the FDA has only approved the drugs for the treatment of low testosterone levels caused by hypogonadism or another medical condition, television and radio advertisements have commonly encourage men to ask their doctors to check for “Low T” if they are experiencing any number of symptoms commonly associated with the natural effects of aging.
Due to the lack of adequate warnings about the potentially life-threatening testosterone drug risks, many doctors have prescribed AndroGel and other similar drugs for life-style reasons, indicating that they will help increase energy levels, strength and sex drive.
Many men have been prescribed testosterone drugs without ever receiving testosterone blood tests or after it was confirmed that they have normal testosterone levels for their age.
Research suggests that many men may have died suddenly due to heart attacks or the testosterone drug blood clot risks, which may have been avoided if manufacturers had provided adequate warnings for consumers and the medical community.
