Tasigna Lawsuit Lawyer Washington, DC

TDF HIV Drugs Lawsuit LawyerIf you are in the awful situation of having a chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) diagnosis and then one of the medications your doctor prescribes for you to try to fight this causes you more health problems, it may be in your best interest to discuss your situation with a Tasigna lawsuit lawyer in Washington, DC. 

Reason for Tasigna Lawsuits

Tasigna (generic name, nilotinib) is used to treat CML (chronic myelogenous leukemia). CML is a cancer that affects blood cells and bone marrow. Tasigna works by slowly stopping the growth of cancer cells. 

Unfortunately, a very serious side effect of taking Tasigna is an increased risk of atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is caused by a buildup of fats and cholesterol on the artery walls. This buildup, commonly referred to as “plaque(s)” cause the arteries to become thickened and hardened and to restrict blood flow. This, in turn, can cause high blood pressure, artery disease, artery problems, chest pain, muscle weakness, kidney problems, and other serious health issues.

If you have taken Tasigna and then suffered one or more of the serious side effects it can cause, a Tasigna lawsuit lawyer from Washington, DC may be able to help you to get compensation for expenses related to your health problems that have been caused by taking this potentially harmful drug.

Serious Side Effects of Tasigna

Most medications come with at least some small amount of risk of anywhere from minor to serious side effects. Medications that are sold in the U.S. are supposed to come with adequate warnings of their side effects. Tasigna’s manufacturers warned doctors and consumers about many of the medications side effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, headaches, fatigue, joint pain, night sweats, and fever- but the very serious side effect of atherosclerosis is not listed on U.S. labels (as of February 2018) even though in the clinical trial used for Tasigna’s 2010 approval, high cholesterol, was commonly reported.

If you or someone you love has suffered from any of Tasigna’s serious side effects, a Washington, DC Tasigna lawsuit lawyer may be able to help you.

Numerous studies that link Tasigna to atherosclerosis have come out since 2011. Patients who have taken Tasigna may be at risk for one or more of the following serious side effects:

  • Angina
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Carotid artery stenosis (narrowing and hardening of the carotid artery in the neck)
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Coronary artery stenosis (narrowing and hardening of the arteries that carry blood from the heart)
  • Femoral artery stenosis (hardening and narrowing of the arteries in the upper thigh)
  • Heart attack
  • Pancreatitis
  • Peripheral artery disease
  • Stroke

If you or someone you love has suffered any of the above serious side effects of taking Tasigna, or one not mentioned here, the sooner you contact a good Washington, DC Tasigna lawsuit lawyer, the sooner they may be able to start protecting your rights.

Tasigna’s Manufacturer

Tasigna’s manufacturer, Novartis, settled with the federal government and more than 40 states for $390 million for illegal kickbacks. It was charged in a False Claims Act lawsuit with paying specialty pharmacies illegal kickbacks in exchange for inducing patients to refill certain medications. There have been many subsequent lawsuits filed by Tasigna victims and their families.

If you are one of the very unfortunate victims of Tasigna’s harmful side effects, or if you are a family member of someone who has suffered because of taking Tasigna, a good personal injury lawyer that is experienced with successfully defending the rights of Tasigna victims and their families, may be able to help you.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
