How to file a Tasigna claim

Product Liability Law is a specialized area of law that grants the victims of unsafe products with legal recourse for their injuries. Ordinarily, products such as food, medications, toys, medical devices, motorized vehicles, and many other consumer goods are required to meet the purchaser’s typical expectations. However, if a product has a dangerous defect that has caused injury or death, a claim could be filed to recover monetary damages. A product liability claim compensates victims of harmful products. Every state has different laws governing the claims process, legal deadlines (statute of limitations), legal document requirements, and other qualifications.

In a wrongful death case, an immediate family member might be able to file a claim on behalf of their loved one and their loved one’s estate. Product Liability cases are complex, and if you believe you have a case, you should speak with one of our attorneys as soon as possible to avoid losing your right to recover compensation. In March of 2016, family members filed a lawsuit on behalf of their loved one who was prescribed Tasigna and then tragically died two years later due to Tasigna-related peripheral artery disease that caused severe arterial blockages in his legs.

In 2013, Health Canada released a public safety warning that Tasigna was linked to the development of atherosclerosis during “clinical trials and post-marketing patient experience” after the medication was placed on the market. The warning letter also asserts that the medication’s manufacturer, Novartis, never issued warnings about the potential and dangerous side effects in the product’s labeling, patient information materials, or the company’s marketing materials in the United States.

There have been thousands of Tasigna lawsuits filed against Novartis, the drug’s manufacturer, alleging Novartis did not adequately warn patients of the potentially life-threatening risks associated with the drug. The Tasigna lawsuits allege the prescription drug can cause arterial blockages leading to strokes, heart attacks, and fatalities in some patients. Recent research studies have concluded that taking Tasigna increases a patient’s risk of developing atherosclerosis.

You or your loved one could be qualified to file a Tasigna lawsuit if:

  • Diagnosed and treated for Ph+ Chronic Myeloid Leukemia,
  • Prescribed Tasigna as part of a chemotherapy therapy,
  • Developed atherosclerosis resulting in a stroke, heart attack, QT syndrome, or sudden death

If you or a family member has endured all of these circumstances, it might be possible to file a claim against the manufacture to recover monetary compensation for damages. However, time is limited, and the legal deadline for filing a claim varies from state to state.
