Studies have been associating testosterone therapy drugs with increased cardiovascular risks for years, but many testosterone users have just heard about these issues.Victims and their families are now filing lawsuits to hold the drug manufacturers accountable for the cardiovascular injuries their products caused. Some who are considering a lawsuit have asked,
"How Much is My Lawsuit Worth?"
In a personal injury lawsuit, damages are paid to an injured person by the company found legally responsible for the injury.
Compensatory DamagesCompensatory damages are damages that compensate people for their injuries and resulting financial loss. These may include:
- Medical bills as a result of the injuries and future related medical care
- Current and future lost wages
- Pain and suffering for physical, mental and emotional trauma
- Loss of normal life such as hobbies and exercise
- Loss of consortium, which involves the impact of the injuries on the plaintiff’s relationship with his or her partner
- Other possible damages including disfigurement, increased risk of future harm, shortened life expectancy, and future care-taking expenses
Punitive damages go beyond compensating injured victims and are intended to punish those responsible for exceptionally reckless and negligent behavior. Many states have a cap on punitive damage awards in personal injury cases.
It’s too soon to tell exactly how much compensation injured victims might receive, but the lawyers at Anapol Weiss have successfully represented clients in billion-dollar national litigations against drug manufacturers.
