ANSWER

Individuals throughout the United States may be entitled to financial compensation through a Viagra class action lawsuit, wrongful death lawsuit or individual injury lawsuit as result of Pfizer’s failure to adequately warn about the risk of melanoma skin cancer associated with the erectile dysfunction drug.

Free consultations and claim evaluations are provided by the Viagra attorneys at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. to help determine what legal options may be available for former users of the medication and their family members, and there are no fees or expenses unless a recovery is obtained.

Cases are being pursued on behalf of individuals throughout the United States, alleging that Pfizer failed to properly research the link between side effects of Viagra and melanoma, which is an aggressive form of skin cancer that can be much harder to treat and more life-threatening when it is not caught in the earliest stages.

To begin the process of determining whether you, a friend or family member may be eligible to pursue a Viagra settlement for melanoma cancer, request a free consultation and claim evaluation by calling our law firm toll free at 1 (800) 522-0102 or by <strong>completing our on-line request form.

Free Viagra Claim Evaluation

After speaking with Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. for a free Viagra claim evaluation, there is no obligation to hire our law firm or to pursue a case.

If it is determined that you or your family may be entitled to join an individual lawsuit or class action for Viagra, it remains your decision whether to form an attorney-client relationship and move forward with a case.

During the no-obligation consultation, you will be put in touch with a member of our legal team to review the facts and circumstances surrounding your potential claim, so that we may determine whether a link can be established in court between a diagnosis of melanoma and Viagra use.

You will have an opportunity to speak with one of our Viagra class action lawyers to review any questions or concerns you may have.

Often we are able to make a determination during the initial consultation about whether it is recommended that you or your family move forward with a case. In some circumstances, it is necessary for additional details to be reviewed with our Viagra litigation team before we are able to agree to move forward with your case.

Class Action vs. Injury Lawsuit for Viagra

Given the large number of claims being pursued by men throughout the U.S., the cases are often confused with a Viagra melanoma class action, since each complaint raises nearly identical allegations. However, the injury claims being pursued by the lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. for men diagnosed with skin cancer will be handled as individual product liability lawsuits.

In March 2016, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) established coordinated pretrial proceedings in the federal court system for cases filed in U.S. District Courts nationwide. All claims are centralized before U.S. District Judge Richard Seeborg in the Northern District of California to reduce duplicative discovery into common issues, avoid conflicting pretrial rulings and to serve the convenience of the parties, witnesses and the courts.

While such mass tort litigation, where a large number of lawsuits are being filed by users of the same medication that allege similar injuries, are often confused with a class action for Viagra, there are important differences.

Since each plaintiff’s skin cancer diagnosis will impact their lives in a different way, Viagra melanoma lawsuits cannot be tried through one class representative. Therefore, the individual circumstances of each claim will be considered in any potential settlements, and individual trial dates will be scheduled in courts throughout the country if Pfizer fails to resolve the litigation.

To learn more about the Viagra litigation and to find out whether you or a loved one may have a claim, request a free consultation.
