Testosterone Treatments May Cause Strokes and Heart Attacks

Heart Attack or Stroke

 

Immediately following an announcement by the Food and Drug Administration that it was investigating increased strokes and heart attacks resulting from testosterone treatments, five lawsuits were filed against the manufacturers of testosterone replacement treatment AndroGel.

In some cases, the risk of heart attack doubled.

If you suffered a stroke or heart attack after taking testosterone treatments, a LifeCrafter coach can provide information to help you make a claim.

Actos Increases Bladder Cancer Risks

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) informed the public in June of 2011 that Actos (a drug prescribed to treat diabetes) may be associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer.

Recently, during the first jury trial where a Plaintiff has asserted that claim, the maker of Actos “lost, deleted or destroyed” files rather than risk the jury seeing them.  Perhaps they were shredded?

If you have been diagnosed with bladder cancer after taking Actos, a LifeCrafter coach can help you get the information you might need to investigate a claim.

New Food Safety Worker Protections

The Food Safety Modernization Act (‘Act’) protects workers who disclose food safety concerns.  If you work for a company that manufactures, processes, packs, transports, distributes, receives, holds or imports food, the Act protects you from employer retaliation from reporting safety concerns.

Prior the the Act, employees faced retaliation and termination if they reported food safety concerns to their employers or to the government.

There are time limits for filing retaliation claims and appeals.  If you need help reporting a safety concern or making a retaliation claim, subscribe to our email list.
