The testosterone injury lawyer team at Carey Law Firm is on the cutting edge of an evolving litigation trend involving injuries from testosterone. On January 29, 2014 a study was published that found that testosterone replacement therapy can increase the risk of heart attacks in those over sixty-five years of age generally and in those under sixty-five years of age with pre-existing heart disease.
The medical community’s understanding of the risks associated with testosterone therapy is still evolving, but as early as 2010 a study using testosterone was halted due to adverse cardiac events in the study participants. Despite these known risks, until very recently many medical providers touted a decreased risk of heart disease as a benefit of this therapy. The assistance of a testosterone lawyer is essential for individuals who have been exposed to harmful testosterone injuries.

Testosterone Injury Lawyer in Kansas City
This emerging litigation trend is examining the knowledge of the pharmaceutical manufacturers about the dangers of testosterone replacement therapy, as well as the marketing done by the manufacturers and medical providers. Testosterone injury cases can involve product liability and, in some cases, professional negligence claims, making the services of a testosterone lawyer essential.
Testosterone is marketed in a number of formulations and brand names. These names include:
- Androgel – AbbVie
- Androderm – Actavis
- Axiron – Ely Lilly
- Bio-T-Gel – Biosante/Teva
- Delatestryl – Sandoz Canada Inc.
- Depo Testosterone – Pfizer Inc.
- Foresta – Endo
- Striant – Actient
- Testim – Auxilium
- Testopel – Auxilium
Evidence exists showing that these companies knew about the increased heart risks caused by the use of testosterone therapy, yet they still failed to warn consumers about these health risks. The testosterone lawyers at Carey Law Firm in the Kansas City area are dedicated to exposing how these companies marketed their product for men that did not need testosterone replacement therapy.
