While Canadian consumers have known of the Tasigna atherosclerosis risk since 2013 - when Novartis issued a Tasigna cardiovascular warning in Canada only - American consumers are just beginning to learn about the dangers posed by Tasigna. Tasigna is one of the most prescribed cancer drugs in the world, used to treat a form of chronic leukemia. First approved for use in the United States in 2007, Tasigna has been used by thousands upon thousands of American patients. Completely unaware of the potential danger, these consumers exposed themselves to severe and life-threatening risks at no fault of their own.
Research dating back to 2011 has indicated a clear link between Tasigna and atherosclerosis, and condition that causes the arterial walls to thicken. Atherosclerosis is dangerous because it results in a narrowing of the arteries (peripheral arterial occlusive disease), restricting normal blood circulation. As a result, patients taking Tasigna may experience tissue death, require limb amputation, and may encounter other cardiovascular complications. If you or a loved one has suffered from severe or life-threatening Tasigna side effects, you may be eligible to file a Tasigna lawsuit against Novartis.
Every case is unique and we pride ourselves in giving personalized attention to every one of our clients. To that end, our Tasigna lawyers are providing free, no-obligation case reviews to anyone who believe they may have grounds to file a lawsuit against Novartis related to atherosclerosis.
Our Tasigna attorneys consider the following points when evaluating Tasigna claims:
For persons and family members of persons who meet these qualifications, it is likely you will be eligible to file a Tasigna lawsuit. Individuals who have been diagnosed with atherosclerosis, peripheral arterial disease, limb amputation, and cardiovascular problems are among those who may be eligible for compensation.
Picking an attorney to represent your family in a Tasigna lawsuit is a major decision. We take great pride in providing the most effective legal representation available for Tasigna claims. We believe families who have been harmed by dangerous drugs and pharmaceutical company negligence deserve, at a minimum, to recover damages for the medical expenses, lost income, and any other losses you have sustained as a result of Tasigna. Money cannot reverse the suffering and damage caused by a dangerous drug but compensation can help you recover financially. More important than that to some is the chance to hold a large corporation accountable for patient safety and dishonest business practices. We now know that the drugmaker has been cognizant of the risk for severe Tasigna side effects since 2011, yet chose not to warn American consumers. Instead, the company engaged in aggressive and â€“ at times- fraudulent marketing campaigns to boost sales of Tasigna. In many cases, families decide to file Tasigna lawsuits in order to hold the company accountable for its decision to prioritize profits over human lives.
