Many patients who took Xeljanz are now getting diagnosed with cancer, heart problems, or blood clots in the veins. If this describes you or a member of your family, you might qualify for the Xeljanz lawsuits we’re preparing, entitling you to monetary damages for your injuries.
Anastopoulo Law Firm is preparing a class action case to help multiple plaintiffs recover monetary awards from the manufacturer of Xeljanz. When you join our case, you could seek compensation for your medical expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering, and more. While you concentrate on recovering your health or coping with the loss of a loved one, we focus on building a solid case for financial compensation.
We Recover Economic Damages for Xeljanz Victims
If the manufacturers of the drug Xeljanz are found negligent for not disclosing potential health risks, they could be held financially liable for your resulting financial damages. Our team will help you recover these economic damages:
- Medical expenses for current and future treatments
- Loss of income for the duration of your recovery time
- Required in-home domestic and medical support
- Funeral and burial expenses if you lost a loved one
Our team helps you gather and organize the documents that prove the at-fault party’s liability and your right to financial compensation. These documents can include medical bills, pay stubs, direct deposit receipts, and more. We do the legwork for you while you recuperate. We’ll even visit you at your home or hospital room if needed.
You Can Request Noneconomic Damages
In addition to expenses that might otherwise come out of your pocket, such as medical bills and medication costs, you can also request compensation for a variety of noneconomic damages. We help you seek compensation for:
- Mental and emotional anxiety
- Physical pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of companionship
You do not have to calculate these damages on your own. Instead, our team will explain the purpose of intangible damages and how we use your written prognosis and the duration of your suffering to determine their financial value.
You Could Be Entitled to Punitive Damages
While economic and noneconomic damages intend to make injury victims whole, punitive damages punish at-fault parties for intentional or egregious acts of negligence. We’ll fight hard to prove Xeljanz’s manufacturer had an obligation to inform doctors and patients of potential dangers and seek punitive damages on your behalf.
How Xeljanz Injured Unsuspecting Patients
When patients suffer from the pain and discomfort of arthritis and ulcerative colitis, doctors may prescribe a medication called Xeljanz. Xeljanz contains a chemical called Tofacitinib. Recent Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reports warn of increased health risks of Tofacitinib that could lead to:
- Severe cardiac episodes
- Certain types of cancer
- Dangerous blood clots
- Unexpected death
If you were diagnosed with one of these conditions after taking Xeljanz, our mass torts team at Anastopoulo Law Firm wants to help you and other injured patients hold the company that made the drug responsible for your damaged health. When we file a Xeljanz lawsuit on your behalf, we take care of all case-related details and fight hard for the compensation you deserve.
Additional Xeljanz Side Effects
Many prescriptions and over-the-counter medications come with side effects. However, a drug you started taking to treat one condition should not threaten your health and wellbeing by causing other, more severe health issues. In addition to serious diseases, Mayo Clinic research shows that Xeljanz’s active ingredient (Tofacitinib) can also cause these unpleasant side effects:
- Chest pain or tightness
- Difficulty breathing
- Change in heart rate
- Labored breathing
- Fatigue and weight loss
Report any unpleasant side effects to your doctor immediately. All the symptoms you experienced after beginning the use of this drug should be listed in your medical records. Our team will request your complete medical file to help support your fight for compensation.
Let Us Deal with the Insurance Company
Once we present persuasive evidence of your legal position to the at-fault party, that leads to most personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits settling out of court. We aim to settle your case without going to court, but we will go to trial if we cannot reach a favorable settlement agreement. As part of our representation, our team:
- Absorbs all case-related expenses upfront
- Obtains and completes all required forms
- Handles all information requests
Our firm also handles the negotiation process for you. We will bring every offer to you for consideration and advise you on the sufficiency of each offer you receive. We also make sure you do not agree to lowball offers or offers you do not think are fair. In addition to handling the insurance company for you, we will not charge you anything unless you win financial recovery.
