South Carolina Truvada Lawyer
If you or someone you love suffered from damage to your kidney or bones due to taking Truvada, its manufacturer might be responsible for compensating you for your injuries. The monetary recovery we request for you starts with the medical care you require until you recover. We can also request compensation for your pain and suffering and other diagnosis-related expenses. When you join our Anastopoulo Law Firm mass tort team, we explain what makes you eligible to join our other injured plaintiffs and take care of all case-related communications for you. Our South Carolina Truvada lawyer will help you navigate the compensation process, understand how mass tort cases work, and prepare your case file for you.
How Truvada Put Your Health in Jeopardy
Truvada is typically prescribed to HIV-positive patients to help slow the disease’s progression. Patients who took Truvada are at increased risk of having chronic and acute kidney diseases and abnormalities. Patients also suffer significant bone mineral density loss. According to Mayo Clinic’s medication information, additional side effects of Truvada include:
- Difficulty breathing
- Small, flat skin lesions
- Blindness or vision changes
- Chest pain
- Difficulty sleeping
- Unexplained weight loss
Report any of these symptoms immediately and make sure they are noted in your medical records. Our team will request these records as part of the evidence we collect for you. We will use them to prove you were prescribed Truvada as well as the dosage that was recommended for you. We will also use them to show the connection between your medication and subsequent diagnosis.

Recoverable Damages for Mass Tort Members
The AIDS Healthcare Foundation cites the liability of Truvada’s manufacturer in a class action complaint. The company, Gilead Sciences, Inc., either knew or should have known its drug could be dangerous or fatal if taken in the recommended dosages. It is liable for your damages because it knew the risk to your health and failed to inform you or your doctor. Gilead Science’s failure to act entitles you to recover the following damages:
- Current and future medical care
- Present and future lost wages
- Current and future pain and suffering
- Present and future emotional trauma
If you are the surviving family of someone who was fatally injured after Truvada use, you can also recover damages for your loss of their companionship and consortium. The costs of making their final arrangements are also recoverable.
You Might Be Eligible for Punitive Damages
Punitive damages are a special form of compensation. Unlike economic and non-economic damages, which are intended to compensate injured victims, punitive damages are intended to punish a defendant whose actions were intentional, deceptive, or egregious. If applicable in your case, you could recover these damages. Our team will let you know if you qualify for this additional form of financial recovery.

South Carolina’s Statutory Deadline Must Be Met
When you pursue the negligent drug maker for financial recovery, you become one of many plaintiffs in our mass tort case. As one of the plaintiffs, the state decides how long you have to file your lawsuit against the defendant. According to S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530:
- The personal injury statute of limitations is generally three years from the date your Truvada-related illness is discovered.
- The wrongful death statute of limitations is generally three years from the date of your loved one’s Truvada-related demise.
Failing to meet the filing deadline could prevent you from compelling the company to compensate you. To ensure that does not happen, our team will identify the statute of limitations and the relevant date to ensure you meet the filing deadline.
