Did you or a loved one suffer a heart attack, stroke, or another serious side effect after using the testosterone cream AndroGel? You may be eligible for compensation for your damages, including medical bills and wrongful death claims.
When you seek medical care, you expect your doctor to be able to give you an accurate assessment of the risks and benefits of available treatments. However, sometimes drug companies put their bottom line above patients by misrepresenting the risks.
At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, we believe companies who put profits over people should be held accountable. Contact an AndroGel lawsuit lawyer today at 1-800-747-3733 to explore your legal options.

Wrongful Death Claims
If your loved one passed away after using AndroGel, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim. These claims compensate the family of victims for their financial and emotional losses.
Damages available in a wrongful death claim may include:
- Medical bills your loved one accrued before passing
- The cost of cremation or burial
- Funeral costs
- The loss of financial support
- The loss of emotional support
- Pain and suffering experienced by the victim
No amount of compensation can bring your loved one back. However, a wrongful death claim can help your family recover lost financial assets. This security may allow you to focus on your family, instead of worrying about paying bills.
